Santa Cruz de Tenerife: Palmetum Entry Ticket

1. Santa Cruz de Tenerife: Palmetum Entry Ticket

Gain your entry ticket to the Palmetum of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, a 12-hectare botanical garden that specializes in palm trees. Marvel at the 2 lakes, stream, 3 waterfalls, and beautiful corners decorated with immense volcanic rocks. Visit a truly valuable project — a transformed municipal rubbish dump that is now a recreational space for plant lovers. See how it’s now bursting with spectacular plant life brought here through partnerships with institutions from all over the world. Take in its splendid landscapes, achieved through years of elaborate and improved garden design. Get your camera ready for the great views from the mountain of the sea and the city below. Be wowed by about 3,000 species of plants from tropical and subtropical climates around the world. The botanical family of palm trees, technically called Arecaceae or Palmae, is the best represented in the collection, with more than 600 species distributed throughout the park according to their geographical origin. See how most of the area of the Palmetum has been dedicated to island territories, so palm trees from islands, such as Madagascar, the Caribbean or Polynesia, are very well represented. Take in a truly relaxing and nature-inspired visit to a worthwhile project for the planet.

A beautiful garden with a variety of vegetation. Several places to enjoy the ocean views. A good place for walking and relaxing. Location close to the main station in Santa Cruz.

Great experience, spent more time there than expected.
