Jardín de Cactus

The Jardín de Cactus is a magnificent example of an architectonic intervention integrated into the landscape. César Manrique created this audacious architectonic complex whilst maintaining the unshakeable pairing of art and nature that is so tangible in all of his spatial interventions.

It is located in Guatiza, Teguise, in the middle of an agricultural landscape characterised by extensive tunera plantations dedicated to the cultivation of cochineal.

What there is to see

The interior presents a circular structure, a possible metaphor for the island's volcanic craters.

At our feet lays a double staircase which invites us to trace the winding, stony paths and steps that connect the various garden areas.

In the centre's five thousand square metres, there are over seven thousand two hundred examples of over one thousand one hundred different species, originating from such distant lands as Peru, Mexico, Chile, the Unites States, Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Morocco and the Canary Islands themselves.
