  • The Palmeral of Elche, above all the historic, is in the historic heart of the city, is a great Palm forest where you can find excellent places to sit and hear the sound of water sources, to see children chasing pigeons, for reading or watching the life...

  • Nice and very interesting site. It is interesting to be able to find a place within a city. It is recommended to visit. Perhaps more information should be supplied to villages and cities, many lose us to see things as well due to the lack of information.

  • Beautiful stunning park. A long time can be spent just strolling and sitting and relaxing. There is a good cafe bar.
  • Beautiful park to spend some time in, good park and adult park for free public use as well
  • In the heat of the summer the palms offer cooling shade and a beautiful venue for picnics
  • A wonderful city of history and beauty. A must visit.
  • 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
