Opened in May 1989, Botanicactus is divided in 3 different zones:

  • The Mallorquin garden (25 000 m2) in which you can find typical plants of the Mediterranean climate, a flower garden, the picnic spot and a kid’s park.

  • The cactus zone, a 40 000 m2 desert with 8 000 different cactus species!

  • The humid garden with tropical vegetation and a lake.

As a cactus lover, strolling in there was my kind of paradise! It’s quite impressive to see cactuses that are twice your size. And what a joy to discover the flowers…

Be aware that in summer it gets very hot in the garden, so wear a hat and bring water! There are picnics tables so you are welcome to bring your own food – as long as you don’t leave anything behind you!
