We spent an hour or so wandering amongst the succulents and admiring the cacti collection. The chef in the restaurant is a lovely guy, very friendly and keen to cook whatever you desire. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Apparently one of the best collections of Cacti and Succulents to be found anywhere and with a very nice restaurant/cafeteria that does an excellent "menu del dia" served on a lovely terrace. Spectacular views of the town. Very friendly and attentive service.
