This musical event has gone from strength to strength each year, thanks to performances by talented, internationally prestigious guitarists, along with up-and-coming young names that use the festival to launch their careers. The concerts take in different musical styles with the guitar as protagonist, and are held outdoors, in different locations around the city.
Elche is well worth at least one visit this summer. The whole municipality takes on a special kind of charm in the sunshine and with the gentle Levante breeze. The coast is not far, just a few kilometres away, where the sea awaits behind a long series of white dunes.
The land of Elche looks to share its heritage and breathe life into it. Proof of that is the Ciutat d’Elx Guitar Festival taking place from 26th to 31st July in the San José Cloisters, La Llotja (former fish market) and the Grand Theatre. An event where great guitarists will be enchanting the evening with their melodies, creating the soundtrack for this legendary city.
