A group with an interest in the history of Elche has asked the regional government to declare a recently discovered archaeological dig site in the city to be of unique cultural interest.

The area near to the town hall, which is on display to the public, was the site of Arabic baths and despite being protected is under threat, according to the group, from the extension of the Central Market building in the city.

The group therefore want the protection order to be widened to prevent the expansion, as they believe that there may be other unique historic elements hidden below the area, and the current plans would risk both these potentially hidden zones, and the perimeter of those on display.
