The Valenciana region
The land which was the birthplace of the Lady of Elche bust, which witnessed in fascination the emergence of that medieval wonder known as the Misteri, the Mystery Play. The land where hundreds of thousands of palm trees have been sown, cultivated and nurtured, and under whose gentle shadow the daily lives of the citizens run their course. The land which has been deemed worthy of two declarations as a Unesco World Heritage Site, must be, by rights, a land of nuances and contrasts.
A peaceful walk through the streets and squares of the historic centre of Elche allows one to discover a combination of grand, monumental buildings (the Basilica of Santa Maria, the Alcazar de la Señoria, the Calahorra Tower, the Convent of la Merced, the Town Hall, among others), testimony to a rich past, standing alongside the newer constructions of young and dynamic city. This great architectural wealth is complemented by a network of museums whose contents are of undeniable interest to the visitor.
The strategic location of the original site of the city at La Alcudia, two kilometres south of the current city, marked out its early historical. Through it passed several civilizations, whose legacy lives on at the museum and archaeological site. The remains left behind by Neolithic culture demonstrate the presence of human civilisation dating from five thousand years before our the current era.
The Palm Grove, World Heritage Site
The grand Palm Grove, part of the inheritance of the four centuries of Arab rule, is the unequivocal symbol of a city which has known how to strive to make optimum use of the land in the face of the relentless, burning sun and scarcity of water. The use of water, its distribution and the need to make the most of supplies has been a constant factor in the landscape of Elche, which continues to employ a network of irrigation channels, partitions, branches and cascades dating from Islamic times. All this was decisive in the declaration of the Palm Grove as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites.
The Palm Grove Museum provides the visitor with the opportunity to discover a grove of palm trees along with its traditional form of irrigation, typical produce and white palm craftsmanship. The Centre of Traditional Culture at the School Museum of Pusol brings together a collection of memories and artefacts of the inhabitants of the area and of the city, with examples of the old crafts, rural labour, trade, leisure activities and customs which have shaped the lives and the future of the small towns and villages of the countryside around Elche and the city itself during the XX century.
The Contemporary Art Museum (MACE), in middle of Main Square of the of El Raval district of the city, where the Muslim population settled after their expulsion from the Walled City from the Christian conquest of 1265, provides a wide and varied overview of Spanish vanguard art of the last decades of the last century. In the same district a journey may be made to the more distant past at the Paleontological Museum (MUPE). Here fossils found in the area, together with bones and skeletal reconstructions of large dinosaurs, as the such as the terrifying T-Rex are on display.
Elche has a wide range of products and services on offer. Both in the city centre and at its two main shopping malls,El Aljub and El Sauce, you may find everything that you are looking for. You may also find all the top shoe brands at very attractive prices at our RUTA OUTLET at the Elche Business Park, and at the Salvador Artesano Factory, 53 kms along the Murcia-Alicante Highway. Tel. 96 546 84 39
Gourmet Elche. A light lunch, a hearty meal, or a few tapas... delicatessen restaurants, bars, traditional inns, pavement cafés, and specialist food shops. So many different ways of getting to know Elche's gastronomy. Our most well-known dish isArroz con Costra, a rice dish with a baked egg crust. However, ourArroz con Conejo y Caracoles, another rice dish with rabbit and snails, is also outstandingand our traditional Puchero conPelotas, a hotpot or stew with meatballs, must not be forgotten. Also held in high esteem is the Mújol del Hondo, a dish of ail-oli and shellfishfresh from the coast.
Situated on the road from Elche to Santa Pola. The Rio Safari Park is just 4 kms down the road and is a great place to visit for the family.
Located on a bus route that can take you to the sea port fishing village of Santa Pola where you can take a glass bottom boat to the island of Tabarca. Relax on the beautiful long clean sandy beaches or enjoy the local cuising.
Alternative you can visit the city of elche famous for its Palm trees and also its variety of hand made shoes.

We booked this villa for my Fathers retirement/ 65th Birthday and had a party of 11 people - 6 adults 5 kids. We had arranged to meet at the villa at 11am but Karen was running late so we had to stand… More
Thank you for your comments. I was going to wait to respond as I am awaiting results of an analysis of the pool water.
I was asked to meet you at the villa at 11 am though did ask you to phone me on departure from the airport which would have enabled me to arrive at the villa prior to you. This was to help me to manage my time efficently as it is a very busy time of the year. I was on my way to the villa when you called to say you arrived. I believe it took my about 7 minutes to get there.
Regarding the pool. You sent me a message on the evening of your arrival to say the pool needed to be checked due to high cholorine levels. I arrived at the villa early am about 8.45 to do a test on the pool water. The chlorine levels were on the high side but acceptable for this time of the year due to the heat burning the chlorine up and also that the pool is cleaned prior to arrival and then weekly though you were only in the house for one week. I spoke to your father and explained things to him. The leaves in the pool are unfortunately a problem as the pool is located in a lush greeen garden area and with the wind leaves do drop which is why there is a net to fish them out. I spoke to the owner as he maintains the pool. He also visited the house and put the pool on to filter overnight due to your concerns.
The second time I visited the house regarding the pool which I think was day three, you told me of other issues that you had regarding the hairdryer and toaster. That was about 11 in the morning, I was back at the house at about 5 in the after noon with a new toaster and hairdryer. I also discussed with the owner the other two problems you highlighted and he contacted his workman but when he arrived at the house he could not gain access. These problems have now been rectified.
Regarding the skin problem with your family, I received a message from your father saying it was caused by dirty water. I was very confused with this as your complaint was due to high chlorine. I believe one of your group also used my testing equipment the following day and said the levels were now normal, when i arrived the following day to see what the issue was. High chlorine would kill any bacteria in the pool was my thinking. This is why i have asked the owner to have the water tested.
I did discuss with you on your departure about your holiday and was told you had a good time with exception to the rashes the children had.
Previously we had a family with 5 or 6 young children under the age of five using the pool all week and none of them had any issues, all of which I discussed with you. As soon as I have the results on the water, I will email them to your father.
