A day full of palm trees in the palm capital of Spain!

Itinerary:

We head towards Elche Natural Park El Fondo, which is about 30min away from Torrevieja. We first visit a palm farm to learn about the cultivation of palm trees and dates, from its cultivation to the final product. In addition, you will taste different varieties of dates and plant new trees.  You can even climb a palm tree if you dare to! You can also purchase fresh or dry dates at their shop. The Elche Palm area (El Palmeral de Elche) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the largest in the world.

From the palm farm we will continue towards Elche’s Huerto del Cura garden, where we will get to see this historic and protected palm grove, as well as its art scuptures, springs and plant collections. We will enjoy a tapas lunch at a nearby restaurant after the visit.
