Dear all,
I have tried to identify the tree for my grandma, who couldn't identify this even she know a lot of plants. Thus, this forum is us last hope for identify this tree. Thanks for help in advanced.

She saw the tree in Torrevieja, Spain where is Mediterranean climate. I am attaching the pictures that she has taken. She said that the tree was full of large, white flowers and she was quite impressed about the tree. Unfortunately, I cannot give more details, but hopefully the pictures are good enough.

Hopefully, someone can identify this.

I showed the picture to my grandma and she agreed that it's the same tree. Thus, thanks for helping us. :)
