Look close at the giant catcus outside the garden.
The garden in Guatiza is not as boring as you think. It was designed by the famous Cesar Manrique and contains over 10,000 cacti and 1,450 different species in a multi level fascinating setting with a windmill. There is also a restaurant, and shop.
The opuntia cacti in this area was once very wide spread and used commercially to raise the cochineal beetle, it used all over the world for its bright red dye and particularly to create Martini. Now there is only one small farm.
Open 10.00-17.45 daily
Address: In the village of Guatiza
Directions: On the north east coast between Costa Teguise and Mala
