About 9km southwest of the city, just before the village of Tafira Alta, this vast botanical garden - Spain's largest, encompassing 27 hectares - hosts a broad range of Macronesian flora from all seven Canary Islands, including many species on the verge of extinction.
Buses 301, 302 and 303 all pass by the garden's upper entrance. By car, take the C-811 road from Las Palmas.
The lovely Parque Doramas , with its fine dragos (dragon trees), was designed by the British towards the end of the 19th century, when the UK dominated the economic life of Las Palmas.
