The best things to do in Elche



Located in the picturesque province of Alicante in Valencia, Elche enjoys a Mediterranean climate drenched in sunshine throughout the majority of the year. The main things to do in Elche are visiting the Basilica of Santa Maria, the Calahorra Tower, and the Tower of the Consell.

Another of the main attractions in Elche is the Elche Palm Grove (El Palmeral), an expanse of
more than
200,000 palm trees within the town, making it the largest palm grove in Europe. After being blown away by the palms,
another item on the list of places to visit in Elche is the 12th-century Palace of Altamira, which formed part of the defense of the Almohad walled town that belonged to the Counts of Altamira.

If you are lucky enough to be wondering what to do in Elche in late August, you can enjoy the big week of festivities, celebrations and Elche attractions, which bring together visitors and local alike.
For the culture vultures looking for interesting things to see in Elche, the Misteri D'Elx museum,
Pusol School Museum and the Archaeological and Historical Museum of Elche are high on the list.
