Elche & Santa Pola
Elche, declared a World Heritage Site in 2000, is called, the Oasis of Mediterranean. It is also very well known because of its el palmeral garden, the biggest one in Europe with more than two hundred thousand palm trees. These palms were planted at the time of the Muslim occupation in the Iberian Peninsula. They have strongly contributed to the cultural heritage of this city, which is the third most important city of the Comunidad Valenciana.
