The Ethnographic Park & Botanical Garden Pirámides de Güímar reopened its doors on July 30th, to the delight of the many visitors who went to the facilities on that day, after more than a year of closed doors.
Over three hundred people seized this date to discover this great 67,000m2 open-air museum which offers, in these times of social distancing and search for open spaces, an open air experience without crowds of people or closed spaces.
Pirámides de Güímar is a large outdoor museum space, twice nominated for the European Museum of the Year Award, in addition to being one of the five official Botanical Gardens of the Canary Islands.
Furthermore, Pirámides de Güímar opened its doors with a surprising novelty, a striking exhibition entitled ‘An ocean… of plastic’, the result of the ongoing Sustainability program that the Ethnographic Park has been developing for years. This new exhibition received the approval and interest of those who discovered it, due to the importance of its theme and message.
The Ethnographic Park has prepared appropriately for this reopening, limiting the capacity in closed spaces, complying with all hygiene and social distancing measures to guarantee the safety of the visitors and the enjoyment of its extensive facilities.
Fortunately, the space available makes it easy to maintain a safe distance between people, since Pirámides de Güímar has 30,000m2 of garden areas accessible to the public, located along a path that surrounds the complex of six stepped pyramids, astronomically oriented to the sun.
The Park also has four open-air routes, which visitors can stroll along at their leisure, discovering interesting exhibitions about the culture, history, nature and geology of the Canary Islands, as well as the botany, well represented in the Botanical Garden, which boasts over 250 plant species. Without forgetting the specialized gardens, such as the extraordinary Poison Garden, unique in Spain, or the renowned Sustainable Garden, created in collaboration with the University of La Laguna.
All this in a space where they strive to surprise the most curious minds and offer a different experience to lovers of culture and nature of all ages, in a unique, safe and pleasant environment.
