Botanical Gardens of Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

At the beginning of the 50s, the Swedish botanist Eric Ragnor Sventenius, who had been living on the island for several years, wanted to create a place to show the botanical resources of the island and suggested to the mayor that a botanical garden should be established.

Situated at the end of the golf course in Maspalomas this is Spain’s biggest botanical garden and is a beautiful home to about 600 plants, all grown only in the Canary Islands including a huge collection of palms, vegetables, and medicinal plants.

The vast garden has everything from lakes full of fish to forests, cliff paths, a huge collection of palm trees, a waterfall and lots of the endangered dragon trees.

Admission is free and there are paths allowing easy access to a variety of areas even for the less mobile.
