All of them are the result of the heritage received by the different cultures that have passed through this Mediterranean enclave over the centuries and of the care with which the people of Elche have managed to keep such a generous legacy that is still valid in every corner of the city, giving it a stamp of unique cultural identity.
El Palmeral, with its more than 200,000 specimens of palm trees, is configured as a unique landscape in Europe and a clear example of conservation of natural spaces integrated into the city.
The Misteri d’Elx received the UNESCO distinction as Oral and Intangible Heritage. This sacrolyric drama dates back to the 13th century, and continues to be performed uninterruptedly until today thanks to the efforts of an entire town that has kept this cultural tradition alive.
The Pusol School Museum was born as a pedagogical project and today it has become a piece of the history of Campo de Elche, its traditions, trades and customs brought to our time so that the new citizens know their roots. Thanks to the effort spent over several generations, this museum has been declared a World Heritage Site.
In addition to its rich heritage, Elche stands out for being a modern and dynamic city with an important shoe industry that stands out worldwide for its high-quality and designer footwear. A city of services, oriented to commerce and always ready to show all its charm to the visitor who will be welcomed as if in their own land.
