  • At the heart of the city, gigantic and restful green space. Lovely walks and amazing paintings in the bed of the river. A nice discovery.

  • It is a pleasure to stroll through Elche and being surrounded by so many Palm tree and vegetation. People who come to Elche for the first time are very amazed by this "exotic" beauty...

  • It is a curious thing, for who has not seen it, the Palm is a set of private, public parks and gardens of Palm trees that surround the old town of Elche. It is not worth paying in private. It is a curious thing to see.

  • Beautiful stunning park. A long time can be spent just strolling and sitting and relaxing. There is a good cafe bar.
  • A wonderful city of history and beauty. A must visit.
  • Green oasis of quiet and beauty. Very tidy groves.
  • A little underwhelming. I was expecting more to be honest. I appreciate that it's a park but at times it felt like there was more pavement than trees
  • I think it's nice, but I won't do it for longer than 1 hour 😌
