Why take this tour?

We begin our visit to Pirámides de Güimar , a large open-air museum that brings together various routes and specialized gardens around pyramidal structures oriented to the sun on key astronomical dates. We will walk through its Poisonous Garden that houses more than 70 poisonous plant species from around the world. A unique exhibition in the Canary Islands, which in its 1,500 m2 brings together some of the most toxic plants on the planet.
