There are only 70 kms from Cases Noves (boutique hotel in Spain) till Elche, but should not be an excuse to miss this important city of the few in the world with two world heritage sites, "El Palmeral" and "El Misteri".
Elche and its two world heritage
The flat plains of Vinalopó have one exceptional city. A select group exists in the world, formed by cities that hold more than one recognised Treasure to humanity. Elx is part of this collective. However, the Palmeral and the Misteri, in all their greatness, beauty and originality, don't stand alone. The city accompanies its treasures, exalting its' two thousand year history, combining modernity with dynamism. Ilicitanos (Elx inhabitants) conserve the natural coastline, which closes an imaginary circle that makes up the territory.
Important to consider:
- 70 kms far from Cases Noves.
- Do not miss "El Palmeral & Huerto del Cura".
- Calahorra Tower.
- Santa Maria Cathedral.
- Altamira Palace.
