45. Hijuela del Botánico (Botanical Garden Extension)

After the application of the seizure laws, the former orchard of the disappeared Clarissan convent of San José, remained an urban plot without any function, until the end of the nineteenth century when it was decided to convert it into a nursery of plant species that, once acclimated to the conditions of the island, would be used to increase the collection of the Botanical Garden of La Orotava, located in La Paz plains. Delimited by an interesting cast iron gate, it stands out for the sinuous layout of its walks and flower beds where exotic specimens are characterized by their rarity, their flowering or their size. This is a place to enjoy in the Historic Centre of La Orotava, where, with the greatest respect in your visit, you will become an ‘Ambassador of Sustainability and Environmental Education’.
