Cactus Garden (El Jardin del Cactus) 

Even if you are not a gardening/plant enthusiast, you will nevertheless find this a fascinating visit. The garden, built in an old quarry, is situated on the northern edge of the village of Guatiza, at the north-east of the island, alongside the LZ-1.

There are cacti of all shapes, sizes and colours and the variety will surprise you. They are laid out in a series of beds and terraces and the vibrant greens of the cacti stand out dramatically from the black volcanic gravel.

There is a good restaurant, shop and interesting windmill.

There are some unusual signs denoting the ladies and gents. I won’t spoil the surprise!

Ample parking.

Some pictures are below but I am not sufficiently expert to name the plants. These are not the size of cacti you see in greenhouses in the UK. Some are massive!
