  • First of all don't be fooled by the big cactus in front of the entrance, it's a fake! Then let you subjugate all others, real ones, that stand in a very well-kept garden design marked by the imprint of Manrique. Be sure to have fun very naughty handles that decorate the bathroom doors.

  • We went here on our Cesar Manrique tour with the First Minute Operators. This garden is set in an old volcano and designed well. For the casual viewer I expect you could stay for about 45 minutes as i...  more »
  • My father described it as the perfect place to shoot wallpapers for PC or mobile phone. It is insanely beautiful, you can spend an hour in there without get bored to loose. My favorite Cactus were the balls. Highly recommended! I ask only what the ugly metal Cactus is doing before that, me.. :)

  • The most charming cactus garden with amazing cacti from many places in the world. Beautifully well thought out, tidy and tranquil. There is a cafe and shop inside. Not much information is provided about the plants however the landscaping and variety of plants is quite unique! Entry is about €4.50 but you can buy a discounted multi-trip ticket to visit more attractions around the island.
  • What a disappointment. Sure, the garden has a nice structure. But it's so small! The moment you enter, you get a view of the whole garden. With that, you've seen it all. As a matter of speech, the shop and bar are larger than the garden itself. If you've ever seen the cactus gardens of Gran Canaria or Mallorca: this is nothing compared to them. Don't spend your time here, there's lots to do and see on the island that are worth it.
  • Small but splendid botanical garden, dedicated to the cactuses and designed by Lanzarote's born architect César Manrique
  • Great for plant and art lovers! Amazing to see all the different types of cacti and all strategically placed. Green finger envy!
  • Great way to spend a couple of hours. Lots of really amazing cactus plants in a very pretty garden.
