There is no other Spanish city that has three assets listed in the different Categories of the Unesco’s World Heritage. That makes the city of Elche definitely unique.

The Historic Palm Grove is a landscape of exceptional value and universal significance. It is a living cultural legacy of Al Andalus, which constitutes an extraordinary example of sustainability in the agricultural development of fragile ecosystems. In 2001, UNESCO created the Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, and the Misteri, or Festa d’Elx (popular holiday of Elche), had the well-deserved honor of being the first Spanish festive display that appeared in it. The School Museum of Pusol, a unique museum space, became part of the Register of Exemplary Practices, the inclusions of which are decided by the Committee for the Safeguard of the Intangible Heritage of the Unesco.
