Travel with Spanish: Elche, Spain

The small unassuming town of Elche near Alicante on Spain's Mediterranean coast is home to a marvelous garden that you should not miss during your vacation. It's called Huerto del Cura or Priest's Garden and it has been a protected area since 1943. You'll find varieties of palms and cacti from all over the world here as well as other plants, but above all calm and tranquility that contrast with the busy tourist towns near the sea shore.
