It is the largest and oldest living specimen of Dracaena draco (common name dragon tree). It is in Parque del Drago, Icod de los Vinos in Tenerife. It is around 20–21 metres (66–69 ft) tall, with a circumference around 20 metres (66 ft). It has over 300 main branches. The trunk contains a 6-metre-high (20 ft) cavity accessible by a door, with a fan installed to provide ventilation. It is estimated to weigh around 140 tons. When it flowered in 1995, it had around 1,800 flowering branches, with its weight increasing by 3.5 tonnes during the fruiting season.
It is one of the symbols of Tenerife. It was depicted on the 1,000 peseta note. It is part of the coat of arms for the Icod de los Vinos (Icod of the Wines) municipality and appears in local legends. While the tree is in the Parque del Drago (Drago Park), which charges for entry, it is possible to view it for free from the town square.
