  • We were surprised by the variety and some forms of cacti, even if the site isn't huge it is nice to stroll to admire them and know their provenance

  • The garden is very well, its structure and design are great. Even if you know nothing of cactus — a fun time.

  • An obvious "must see" for anyone who likes cactus. The site itself is very well laid out, a visual spectacular. Not a lot of information, but a good place to go look at (and photo) a bunch of cactuses.
  • A different kind of botanical garden but for sure worth a visit. Pay attention to protect yourself from sun since it can be quite hot and a nice experience in the garden can be put in shade by a sun burn afterwards.
  • Where's the 6th star because this place is amazing, relaxing and tranquil. 1500 different species of cactus in a Japanese garden, in a volcanic crater that used to be a quarry with a windmill in the middle. You just have to experience this to understand and appreciate the hard work gone into creating this visitor centre.
  • Beautiful architecture, amazing variety of cacti, definitely worth a visit
  • Lovely garden with unusual plants and Cacti. Excellent coffee shop.
