Elches Palm Grooves; an Oasis in the middle of Alicante´s desert

The city of Elche is a very unique place. This cosmopolitan city is placed in a beautiful setting; in the middle of a Sea of Palm Trees. Also Elche preserves the delightfulness of an old medieval city with its walls, bridges and monuments and the services and business of a modern and forward city.
