  • As with many large churches in the whole of Europe, is also this Basilica never fully completed! The outside does have nicely detailed access portals, and inside there is a quite sumptuous decoration. Nice, but there are many more beautiful elsewhere to visit ...

  • Built on the old great mosque is the Church most ancient of the city. Its facade has a spectacular Baroque gate, while the predominant style in its construction was the Gothic. Located in the historic centre of the city, it becomes itself the visit par excellence for travellers (which are many). It retains its original floor and in the high altar altarpiece is spectacular. The entrance is free.

  • The Basilica Sainte Marie is a wonderful baroque art of the seventeenth century, the religious building was reconstructed and is located originally on the site of a mosque re-conquered and dedicated to the Virgin centuries before. Azuleiros dome is noticeable from afar and Shimmers under the heavy Sun of Elche. We recommend a visit to the 14 and August 15 date where stand the mysteries of Elche, giving rise to a theatrical Catholic whose origin is very old. Do not forget to go up in the Bell Tower, the view on the palmeraie is wonderful for 2 euros per person.

  • Beautiful old cathedral, which you can climb to the top of. Even within the bell tower (watch the time!). Only 2 euro for it. It's 170 stairs up and down. The topmost section, from bell tower to parapet, is quite narrow.
  • An incredible place to visit! Very beautiful and friendly people. I'd definitely come again 👍
  • Amazing view from the top of the tower. (177 stairs)
  • A stunning building that is a must-see when visiting this town.
  • Absalutly awesome church and museum close by.
