Jardín Botánico Viera y Clavijo

The Viera y Clavijo Botanical Garden, located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, also known as ‘Jardín Canario’  opened to the public again on 23 March 2022. In June, the opening hours were extended and is now open every day, on weekends and holidays also in the afternoons. The access is through either the Tafira gate (upper part) or the El Dragonal entrance (lower part) with parking at both entrances.
This centre is dedicated to the conservation and management of the terrestrial Canarian Flora through three main areas: research, environmental education (including dissemination), and the maintenance and exhibition of living collections of terrestrial plants, especially those endemic to the Canary Islands and Macaronesia, but also from areas of the planet that maintain floristic connections with the Canary Islands.

Opening Hours:

  • MONDAY TO FRIDAY: from 7:30 to 19:00 (April to September).
  • MONDAY TO FRIDAY: from 7:30 to 18:00 (October to March).
  • SATURDAY, SUNDAYS and HOLIDAYS: from 10:00 to 18:00 (all year round).
    The last access allowed is always one hour before the closing time.

On DECEMBER 24th, 25th, 31st AND  JANUARY 1st the botanical garden is closed.

The Jardín Botánico Viera y Clavijo, or Canary Gardens, is the largest in Spain and one of the world’s best. A walk through its 27 hectares of gardens filled with the rich and spectacular plants of the Canary Islands is a tranquil and fascinating experience. Located in Gran Canaria’s capital Las Palmas in the northeast of the island it protects over 500 species of indigenous plants, many in danger of extinction, and plenty of spectacular exotic plants.
