We only had time for an hour in the municipal park but loved it. So clean and calm. Parking was cheap on street. Would have loved to have taken the train ride but did not have time (and it was full anyway!)

Much of the Costa Blanca looks pretty parched by the end of May, so this botanical garden was an oasis of green shade even by Elche's standards of palm trees everywhere. Apart from palm trees from every corner of the globe, many succulent s and...More

Elche is full of palms but Palmeral has too be seen if nothing else for the historical references, and the variety of palms and cactii

Impressive yearly Procession on Sunday before Easter! Good atmosphere. Beautiful people joining the procession. Later a nice walk in the Palm Groves and it was a peaceful place with a lot of places where you could sit and enjoy the garden.

Well, this is part of the city cultural and sightseeings that anyone in the city must walk around and enjoy, as is very nice to enjoy part of the uniqueness of the city/region. In summer may be hard to stay outside for too long due...More

I have been to the Huerto del Cura a few times over the years and as nice as it was, it wasn't particularly impressive. However things has certainly been improved prior to my recent visit last week. Paths were clean and tidy, and the planting...More

I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), all sightseeing has to be well-researched and not overly taxing; I wear a legbrace. Elche's Palmeral is awesome; escape to the blissfully cool shade of more than 200,000 palm trees - it is the largest, only, palm grove in Europe....More

I had a laugh at the criticism by another Trip Advisor visitor that this was OK if you like palm trees.True - but the point of it is really the history of the palm plantation which goes back to Arab Spain. It has several sections...More

What is the admission price here? I looked at the website, but there are lots of different prices. We are adults travelling with no kids and won't be ziplining or anything wild. Just checking out the gardens and the historic aspect of the place. Also, about how long should we expect to spend here? Does a couple of hours cover it, if we don't want to go too in-depth?

Yes, an hour would be plenty for the Huerta del Cura part which has an admission fee of about 3 euros. Otherwise the part of the palm forest round the back of the tourist information office is a free public park with... More
