Take time to stroll through this labyrinth of gardens filled with over 7,000 cacti. A well-known artist, architect, and Lanzarote native, César Manrique, transformed a disused quarry to create the site. The transformation of the space and the aesthetic layout of the sunken gardens reflect his talent. Discover of over 1,000 different species of cacti—from Madagascar, Peru, Kenya, the United States, Ethiopia, Spain, and many more countries. Relax in the cafe overlooking the gardens with a meal or drink. Take the guesswork out of planning a Guatiza vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Incredible, lots of cactus, it's bigger than it looks when you walk in. As a single catch is not suitable for people with reduced mobility or baby carts.

  • A great visit if you like cacti, or even if you don’t actually. The place hosts (what seems to be) hundreds of species and features a viewpoint, a souvenir shop and a caffe/restaurant. The only thing we were missing, were some explanations on the different varieties of cacti, which would make the visit more interesting. You can easily come by car, or bus as there is a stop in front.
  • A nice hour spent here walking amongst the wide array of cactuses. A calm experience, but I imagine it can get busy. Possibly a good thing to do if he weather isn’t great, although I imagine it could get quite busy. The coffee shop/cafeteria was nice with a great view of the gardens. (Quite a lot of steps!)
