  Botanical Garden
by Helga67

The botanical garden can be found on the outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz and was founded in 1788 by King Carlos III as a part of an experiment to see if it was possible to acclimatize plants to live in different climate zones . It has an enormous number of trees and plants from every corner of the world. It is easy to spend many hours there wandering around, and taking in all the beauty of the trees, shrubs, flowers and ferns on display.
