Region: Elche

Elche, a city located in the province of Alicante, Spain, is a place where history, nature and culture are uniquely intertwined. Known for its impressive palm grove, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Elche offers a unique landscape of palm trees dating back to ancient times. In addition to this natural treasure, the city is home to the famous Misteri d'Elx, a medieval sacred-musical drama held annually in its basilica. Its cobbled streets, lively squares and historic buildings, such as the Palacio de Altamira, evoke its rich heritage. Elche is also a centre of crafts and culture, and its proximity to both the sea and the mountains makes it a diverse and charming destination on the Costa Blanca.
