This was declared a UNESCO heritage site as an exceptional example of a landscape transferred from Arab culture to the European continent, with a sophisticated system of irrigation.

The Palmeral de Elche is one of the largest palm groves in Europe. This tree stand is today fragmented into different parts: the Municipal Park, and the Huerto del Cura, Huerto de la Torre, Hort del Gat, etc. The city of Elche was founded by the Muslims, who designed the Palmeral to take maximum advantage of the region’s extremely severe water conditions. The palm grove enjoyed its period of maximum splendour in the 18th century, when it had over 200,000 specimens. Thanks to its economic importance, the great oasis of Elche has been able to survive to the present day.
