A place where fascinating ancient history lives happily alongside all the attractions and conveniences of a modern resort town, Elche holidays are the perfect destination for anyone looking to combine a bit of culture and sightseeing with their beach holiday.
Its historic monuments, natural wonders and fascinating museums perfectly compliment its cosmopolitan centre and white sandy beaches to create a Costa Blanca holiday that really has got something for everyone.
Elche has a fascinating history and many of its ancient buildings still stand today. Visit the imposing Calahorra fortress, begun in the 12th century, walk the Moorish city walls, or visit the archaeological museum within the grand Alcaser de la Senyoria. The Gothic town hall is also a must for those interested in history, as is the enchanting Basilica de Santa Maria, where the famous 'Elche Mystery Play' is performed every year. There's no shortage of natural beauty on a holiday to Elche either, with the city enjoying a location in the heart of a huge palm plantation, that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
