Information about Elche

Elche is a city located in Spain that is a wonderful place to visit.  It has a moderate Mediterranean climate.  There is so much to see and experience in this city. The Palmeral of Elche which translates to mean, "The Palm Grove of Elche,” is a plantation consisting of more than 200,000 palm trees.   

A great piece of history to visit is Altamira Castle.  It was initially constructed in the 12th and 13th centuries and was reconditioned at a later time using brick exterior during the 15th century.  It had served as the town hall and as a prison in the course of the Spanish Civil War.  Nowadays the castle houses the Elche Archaeology and History Museum.  The Basilica of Santa Maria is a stunning landmark that should not be overlooked.  Its appearance is amazing and appears almost as an impressive sand castle.  This church is positioned in the place where the central Mosque was located at the time of the Muslim period. 

For some fresh air, guests of Elche are partial to spending time at Municipal Park.  It is a relaxing park with plenty of foliage and it is set in the core of the city.  The date palm is abundant in the Municipal Park as well as the widespread palm groves in Elche; however, we can see other variations of palm trees and a huge assortment of vegetation.  The park is sprinkled with ponds and fountains for overall charm. When arranging traveling plans, Elche is the perfect destination.
