Since its inauguration just a few months ago, Elche’s El Hort dels Pontos has welcomed 3,187 visitors from various parts of the world.

At the national level, visitors have come from autonomous communities such as Andalusia, Catalonia, Madrid, and the Basque Country, among others.

Additionally, tourists from European countries as well as regions outside the continent, including Australia, Colombia, Ecuador, and the United States, have seized the opportunity to explore this unique environment.

Located in an orchard within the Historical Palm Grove of Elche, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, El Hort dels Pontos serves as an informative space for traditional agriculture.
