The largest cactus park in Europe
Six metres, this is what the tallest cactus in Cactualdea measures and it is undoubtedly the star of the best photos in this incredible garden. When you go into this, the largest cactus park in Europe, you will be amazed by the huge size of many of the species of the more than 1,200 to be found here. This 15,000 square metre space in La Aldea de San Nicolás, in the west of Gran Canaria can be visited in about an hour on a lively and entertaining tour.
A cactarium with palm trees, aloe vera, peacocks and tortoise
Cactualdea offers a lot more that just spiny plants, brought from exotic places like Madagascar. Amidst babbling water and just past the amphitheatre, the eruption of an artificial volcano leads to steps taking us to the beautiful garden. A long stone path around the cactarium allows us to discover more and more cacti surrounded by palm trees, aloe vera and Canary Island Spurge. Under the unworried attention of peacocks, ducks, tortoises and donkeys, all of which are oblivious to everything and just doing their own thing. Visiting the cave, having some tapas in the outdoor bar and buying souvenirs are all activities to be enjoyed.
