Jardin de Cactus

The Jardin de Cactus perfectly represents the interaction between art and nature that Cesar Manrique sought in all his works. About half an hour's drive north from the port of Arrecife is this spectacular work that enhances a plant, the cactus, which seems to be indigenous to the island enriched by thousands of other varieties from all over the world. Thanks to the Cactus, a flourishing activity of breeding of Cochineals was born on the island, small insects that live on these succulents, which allow the inhabitants of the island to obtain a red dye that is then marketed in large quantities and which has several uses. The Jardin de Cactus is definitely an unmissable stop for those who have the pleasure of visiting Lanzarote.
