The footwear pilgrimage is alive and well in Elche! Salvador Artesano has over 40 years' experience manufacturing shoes and is a pioneer in industrial tourism. In fact, they have a factory shop that is the largest in Europe.
The store is amazing. It has everything for everyone (hence the slogan "Shoes for everyone.") They also offer all kinds of items from leather goods to some really unexpected items. They have sections for children and also for special sizes.
You can visit the factory and then buy the shoes in the store. There are over 100 people working daily in the factory, and it's an experience for the whole family.
