Palmetum Santa Cruz Jardin Botanico, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

(4/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Botanical Garden built on an old landfill site, offers the opportunity to admire the plants coming from the 5 continents, in a relaxing atmosphere.

  • We enjoyed the facility. It is a botanical garden specializing in Arecaceae. The paths are well built, that can be explored also with prams and wheelchair. Download park benches to the stay, Marvel and relax. Hundreds of Palm trees and other flora are described in detail in part. A peaceful environment without further commerce. If necessary, drinks and snacks in the vending machines at the Office can relate. This garden seemed very well maintained and cherished. The system is operated without chemical/synthetic fertilizers, insecticides and fungicides. Mulch like the one or other give the impression that the discounts remain unkept. However, this process is part of the natural cycle.
