  • You are in Elche or close, go to the Grove! Palm trees (the largest Palm Grove in Europe) peace and shade in the summer. Benches for resting, kiosks for treats, drinks and enough to feed the pigeons. A good point for the children Park, kids can have fun under your supervision. Yes sometimes visitors seem to forget the garbage but overall this is a nice Park in the heart of the city and you will enjoy it.
