Botanical Gardens Puerto de La Cruz

Although known officially as Jardín de Aclimatación de la Orotava, or "JAO", this installation is actually in Puerto de La Cruz (there is a smaller one actually in La Orotava).

 

Since its inauguration, all those years ago, it has become one of the most important botanical gardens in the world, rating alongside such others as Kew Gardens in London.

 

It is a huge place, covering around 20,000 square metres. If that wasn't enough, plans are underway to double its size, with the addition of landscaping and more modern facilities.
