Take time to stroll through this labyrinth of gardens filled with over 7,000 cacti. A well-known artist, architect, and Lanzarote native, César Manrique, transformed a disused quarry to create the site. The transformation of the space and the aesthetic layout of the sunken gardens reflect his talent. Discover of over 1,000 different species of cacti—from Madagascar, Peru, Kenya, the United States, Ethiopia, Spain, and many more countries. Relax in the cafe overlooking the gardens with a meal or drink. Take the guesswork out of planning a Guatiza vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Well, who even wants to look at boring cacti? -Could one think, but far from it. This beautifully landscaped cacti garden is really very nice and impressive. We have shown our "greatest hits" lots photografiert and us afterwards - I'm on time with our favorites. Impressive the phallic Cactus relatively at the beginning at all, it seems like phallic to go to Yes on this island. Even the built-in stones or stone sculptures remind yet strong - then the Cactus the size of a full-grown tree, the gastronomy relatively restrained – thank you for that. But above all the total construction of the garden is simply worth a visit. The plastic or what would have whatever cactus in front of the entrance you can save, you could have maybe a beautiful genuine copy the views from the Windmill up is also very nice - so I would say, let's go on all cases

  • Visited with family. Entrance fee is reasonable and good value if you get the joint attraction vouchers for other attractions supported by CACT. There is parking and local bus stopping here. It’s not ...  more »
  • Beautiful garden with an impressive variety of cactus. They come from all corners of the planet, in all shapes, sizes, colors, sometimes in flowers.

  • Impressive collection of cacti in a dramatic setting. It's like a sculpture museum. The restaurant area is pretty and discreet and it overlooks the garden. I also enjoyed the veggie burger made with cactus pulp.
  • Wow factor when you walk in but after that it is a garden with cactus in! It would add to the experience if the different cactus had some explanation about them, as unless you are a botanist you have no idea. The landscape is beautiful though and although we didn't eat I heard great things about the tapas. Great to go if you get it as part of another centre deal ticket.
  • Beautify designed space to exhibit the extraordinary cactus varieties from not only Lanzarote, but from all around the world. You should definitely try the cactus burger at the cafeteria! Apparently this is the only place you will ever have the chance to do so!!👌🏻🌵🍔
  • Very nice place, with loads of different cactus plants, a lovely dining area and a small windmill. We definitely enjoyed the visit very much.
  • Hey you! You like cacti? Sure ya do buddy! Everybody likes cacti! Well the Cactus Garden got ya covered buddy. They got big cacti, small cacti, round cacti, creepy cacti, long cacti, short cacti, cacti that don't even look like cacti, metal cacti, a windmill... Wait a doggone minute! A windmill?
