More about Elche
One of the most special places in Elche is the Palmeral de Elche. With more than 200,000 palm trees, this is one of the largest palm tree gardens in the world. In addition to palm trees, you will also find other Mediterranean trees here, such as the orange tree and the fig tree. Palmeral de Elche was built by the founders of the city (the Moors) and is therefore very old. Since 2000, the palm tree garden has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
In the palm tree garden you will find one very special palm tree, the Palmera Imperial (Imperial Palm Tree). This palm tree is the only one in the world with seven trunks and resembles a candlestick in appearance. According to history, Princess Sissi fell in love with Elche in 1894 thanks to this palm tree. In addition to this imperial palm tree, there are more palm trees with names, usually these palm trees are named in tribute to local and national heroes.
In addition to lovely walks among the palm trees, the park has many pigeons and ducks to feed, a bandstand where concerts take place, a restaurant and a visitor center. The visitor center is called el Huevo (the Egg) and can be recognized by its round, white shape.
