The church is quite tricky to find due to all the alleys you need to go through. Inside the church is very captivating! If you're in the area, it's something you can add on your list to see.
13th August was the annual festival, after a great day out at Rio Safari park we had a short drive to Elche town centre and walked to the towns square. About 11.00 pm the fireworks start and keep going for just under an hour, just be warned it's loud and relentless. A good experience and worth a visit
