Palmetum Santa Cruz Jardin Botanico, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

4.3
#2 of 9 in Parks in Santa Cruz de Tenerife
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. Our Santa Cruz de Tenerife travel route site makes visiting Palmetum Santa Cruz Jardin Botanico and other Santa Cruz de Tenerife attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    Must see, this park is worth a visit. It is very nice, very clean and nice to walk around. When we know what was there before, it's amazing to see what it became! Bravo!

    We have visited the Palmetum first thing in the afternoon and enjoy original stroll through the Botanical Garden built on a mountain of waste. Explanations of the APP for mobile are very well: it is free and helps to know the most important trees of the Palmetum. The duration of the ride is between one to two hours, depending on what you go by stopping and taking photographs. The toilets during the tour were not available; only those of the reception could be used. You can end the evening giving you a refreshing bath in the Marine Park

    Had not so great expectations for this botanical garden, but was quite surprised how much different plants and trees there was to see. Got to even see birds, butterflies and other interesting insects as well. More of the view points provides a nice view of the city and the sea. Good for a quiet break for the holidays. Is quite a long way to go through the Park and it can be hot in the middle of the day. There are plenty of benches, and one can rent electric wheelchair at the reception.
