  • A well-kept garden which is traversed in a short time but that allows you to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the beaches and breathe tranquillity because a noise can be heard. The atmosphere is nice and there are plenty of plants to admire in particular its section of orchids

  • Nice small park, much more than orchids. Many beautiful flowers and trees, a bit too packed though. The dragon tree is at the back, smaller than I thought ;) Nice 1-1,5 hours walk, not too touristy  more »
  • It's a bit far from the city centre of Puerto De La Cruz, nice place to visit but I found the ticket entrance overpriced. this a small garden not a park..!  more »

  • This place is absolutely beautiful. Oh my goodness (PLEASE SEE PICS ATTACHED) This place is very well looked after, the scenery is amazing. They have information points at various locations which give an insight into the garden and it's history. It's very good value for money, at 4.75 euros each you cannot even complain. The fishes in the pond are huge, the parrots are active, you really get the ambience of nature. If you are looking for a peaceful day out I would definitely recommend giving this place a look.
  • Very relaxing Orchid garden with an Agatha Christie connection. A fragment of an earlier time on Tenerife. There is a very pleasant cafe at the bottom of the garden with spectacular smoothies.
  • Sitio Litre (literally, "Little's Place" after the original English owners) is a beautifully kept shady garden with a fascinating history of literary and scientific visitors from England, including Agatha Christie. I saw mallets, which suggest you can play on the original croquet lawn. There is a small collection of orchids, a handsome Dragon Tree, and an aviary of beautiful lovebirds. The cafe is well stocked and does traditional English Cream Teas. I can recommend the iced coffee! The kind of place to take a book and find a shady spot to curl up in the heat of the day!
  • Very interesting history.. Agatha Christie and more... Has a beautiful orchid gallery.. so much colour
  • Lovely little place, I'm 25 and went for my birthday and had a beautiful glass of sangria and a home made fruit scone with jam and cream. Just the icing on top of a little wonder ❤
