Parque el Palmeral
The Palmeral Park is a green explosion of paradise, surrounded by botanical wildlife, waterfalls and a lot of palm trees. Whenever you feel like having a relaxing day in the middle of the nature, visit this wonderful park, which is the largest palm-grove in Europe, planted by the first Muslims to settle here in the early-middle ages. The Moors are the pioneers of such a marvel, introducing to Spain the phoenix dactylifera, which outnumbers the other types of palm trees in this extraordinary garden of paradise. The grove is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it’s definitely worth visiting!
