Palmetum - Botanical Garden in SAnta Cruz de Tenerife
One of the most recent attractions in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the Palmetum is a botanical garden which covers 120.000 square meters and specializes in all types of palm trees.
The land where Palmetum is located now used to be a rubbish dump until the idea of transforming it into a botanical garden came up. Nowadays it showcases a great variety of spectacular vegetation, which is the result of the collaboration of numerous companies and organizations around the world, from Sydney to Havana and from Miami to Santo Domingo.
Why should you visit Palmetum while in Tenerife?
