Cactus Garden

Cesar Manrique’s Jardín de Cactus.

This was to be his final work. The Jardín de Cactus was completed in 1991 and is the culmination of his career. Once again combining nature and architecture in his typical style, he created an amazing nature park from an abandoned rock quarry.

 

 

It has around 4,500 specimens of 450 different species, of 13 different families of cactus and succulents from 5 continents.

 

 

Unique mosaics combine art and signage for the restrooms. Every detail designed.

 

 

Finally, a restored windmill overlooks the garden.
