The whole garden has been built on an abandoned quarry of volcanic ash. In the centre are erected stone monoliths which compliment the garden. On one side is an old mill restored by Cesar Manrique in 1973 which produced “Gofio” (Maiz flour) and which was consumed by the islanders historically. On the other side is an Amphitheatre.
