UNESCO World Heritage

UNESCO World Heritage

Elche was first awarded in 2000 when the historical Palmeral of Elche was declared a World Heritage. Not only was awarded the work of our ancestors at the same time that it made our palm grove –which shapes us, accompany us and enriches us– full of life, but also the people from Elche who, all along the centuries, have known how to preserve it as an indissoluble character even if it is no longer a profitable crop.
