Tour Details

Las Palma's beautiful Botanical Garden, located on the steep slope of the Barranco de Guiniguada, is 27 acres in size and divided into 4 distinct sections. Considered the largest in Spain, this garden also contains a germplasm bank, a library, herbarium and laboratories.

While here observe ornamental plants and the 10,000 succulent cultivars, walk through the Laurel-leaved Forest and be sure to visit the Fountain of the Wisemen, a display honoring the botanists who discovered and described the garden's flora.

In the garden's background is the impressive Caldera de Bandama, the remnants of Gran Canaria's volcano. Reaching a height of 569 meters, the interior of this caldera contains a nod to its agricultural past with an abandoned farm and threshing circle on its floor. This area is famous not only for its volcanic soil but also for its numerous wine cellars! Grab a photo of two of this breathtaking natural wonder then continue to Vegueta, the old town of Las Palmas.

This historic district has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years, especially among the young people who meet in the area on the weekends. Here you will find the famous Christopher Columbus House, a museum inside what was once the island Governor's house. This 500-year-old architectural complex contains 13 permanent exhibition rooms and library, and is a popular spot for seminars and other gatherings.
