El Huerto del Cura Garden


Description

The Palmeral de Elche is the only palm grove in Europe, and is home to around 200,000 palm trees. One of the surviving gardens is known as the Huerto del Cura, containing almost 500 specimens of each species. What will you see? On the inside you will find an extremely rare specimen of around 165 years old, known as the Imperial palm tree. It received its name after a visit by the Empress Sissi to the garden in 1894, during which the chaplain dedicated it to her. The rock garden area is particularly eye-catching for its outstanding collection of cacti and succulent plants that are typical of drier regions. Once inside the garden you'll find the gardener's house, formed by a chapel and a house-studio with a large library stocked with books, autographs, manuscripts and other curiosities.
