Step into a world of wonder graced by thousands of palm trees. The legendary city of Elche, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, reveals an Arabian fantasy of Moorish architecture, lush palm groves, and exotic bazaars. It all unfolds on a panoramic drive through the city enhanced by expert color commentary. You'll see the Basilica, the Palacio, the Museu De La Fiesta, the town market and more before arriving at the old quarter for independent exploration. Wander the narrow streets and alleys finding history and beauty at every turn. Browse the souvenir shops and have lunch at your favorite restaurant. You can tour the Arab Baths, the Alcazar, and the Basilica of St. Mary, where the Elche Mystery Play has been performed for more than 600 years. Your drive back to cosmopolitan Cartagena brings this easy, full-day tour to the palm tree capital of the world to a perfect finish.
