Palmetum Santa Cruz Jardin Botanico, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

(220+ reviews on the web)
Garden
A former landfill turned into an attractive garden, Palmetum Santa Cruz Jardin Botanico represents one of the world's more unique attractions. Local authorities cleared off an area used for dumping municipal garbage to create this 12 hectare (30 acre) park, boasting one of Europe's most diverse collections of palm trees. Imported from across the globe, the trees create a peaceful and healthy setting, with sitting areas placed in spots ideal for contemplating the picturesque sea views. Pick up a map at the entrance and try to identify different palm species as you walk, or head straight for the central walled area protecting the more delicate climbing trees from Mexico. Plan your visit to Palmetum Santa Cruz Jardin Botanico and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Santa Cruz de Tenerife itinerary builder.
