Accessible and signposted trail through the Botanical Garden of the Teide National Park, starting from the El Portillo Visitor Centre.
The garden occupies 4 hectares and was created to exhibit, interpret, research and reproduce local flora.
It is well signposted and contains more than 75% of the vascular plant species of the National Park. It also houses several laboratories with germination chambers and a germplasm bank, which enable the development of an internationally approved programme to recover endangered species.
The route follows the proposed circular path through the garden and ends at the same point where it began.
We recommend you visit the Portillo Visitor Centre, also accessible on both of its two levels, to round off your visit.
- Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves.
- Pay special attention when crossing or walking along trails used by bicycles, horses or motor vehicles and when walking in ravines with water courses.
- Avoid direct encounters with potentially dangerous animals, such as livestock, beehives, and dogs.
- Proceed with caution and watch for obstacles, loose rocks, uneven terrain or steep slopes to avoid accidents and falls.
