However, when we talk about El Drago, we are not just talking about the mythical tree, but also about an enormous, beautiful garden which brings together one of the most complete collections of Canarian flora and offers a panoramic view of Icod.
Entry is not free, so if all you want to do is see El Drago, you can do so perfectly well without needing to enter the garden. In fact, there is a fantastic view from a nearby square – Plaza de Lorenzo Cáceres. However, we highly recommend a visit to the Botanical Garden.
Parque del Drago
Parque del Drago is the name for this botanical garden, which includes all the native flora of the Canary Islands, with several dragon trees, cacti, tabaibas, and lots of other endemic plants. You need to buy a ticket to enter the park. The prices and opening hours are as follows:
April – September: 9am – 8pm
Rest of the year: 10am – 6pm
Adults: €5 | Under 8s: €2.50
