Elche city breaks take you to a delightful town a few miles inland on the Costa Blanca. It is the perfect spot for those who wish to be based near sandy shores but who wish to avoid the coastal crowds crowds. Low cost Elche holidays are popular with golfers, walkers and those with an interest in history. Those who enjoy sightseeing will find plenty to interest them both in and around the town. One of the main sights, and a World Heritage Site, is the Palmeral of Elche, an orchard with over two hundred thousand palm trees. The Municipal Park is part of the palm grove. Altimera Castle, dating from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries is next to the park. It has had many uses over the centuries and is now an archaeology and history museum. The Calahorra Tower is the only remaining part of the old city walls. The domed church of Santa Maria is also worth visiting. The Jose Maria Castano garden with its huge variety of plant life, including the Imperial Palm said to be over one hundred and fifty years old, is not to be missed.
