Jardin de Cactus

 

The Cactus Garden is a magnificent example of an integrated architectural intervention into the landscape. César Manrique created this audacious architectonic complex whilst maintaining the unshakeable pairing of art and nature that is so tangible in all of his spatial interventions. It is located at the town of Guatiza, municipality of Teguise, in an agricultural environment characterized by extensive plantations of cactus dedicated to the cultivation of the "cochineal".
