Eivissa, the island’s vibrant capital, a port city with an impressive marina and exquisite architecture. With its world heritage walled city “Dalt Vila” of Phoenician origin and Punic necropolis of Puig des Molins, it is truly one of a kind. This is a small city with a big personality, known the world over for its bohemian lifestyle and colourful nightlife.
A magnet for intellectuals, the talented, the creative, the free spirited and the trendy, Eivissa has it all…
Sant Rafel de sa Creu, where antient craftsmanship techniques are kept alive and passed on to younger generations. The most authentic pottery and handcrafted products can be found in this small village in the heart of Eivissa.
Here equestrians enjoy traditional horse trotting races at the hippodrome or visit the impressive award winning stud farm – Los Olivos –. For the rest, a church with a view, a fresh water spring and excellent restaurants.
The tiny village of Sant Llorenç de Balàfia in Northcentral Eivissa is a favourite for picnic lovers and fine diners alike. But if what you are in search of is culture, you’ve come to the right place!
Follow the track behind the imposing XVIII century church to reach the Conjunct de Balàfia, a perfect example of an ancient rural Moorish settlement, complete with defence towers intended to protect villagers from pirate attacks…
In the north of the island, the tiny sleepy village of Sant Joan de Labritja has managed to remain unaffected by tourism. Its XVIII century church is an architectural exception and more similar to the temples on the mainland. Built on a hill, the narrow-paved streets, adorned with potted plants and flowers, add to its charm.
Every Sundays, all year around, this little village comes alive to the sound of music, when the Artisan Street Market moves in.
At the heart of the island, Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera, with it’s church on the now pedestrianised square, dating back to 1797, is arguably one of the most picturesque villages on Ibiza.
Beautifully well-kept, with all facades in harmony, it is both bohemian and culturally rich. When it comes to eateries and shopping, you will be spoilt for choice!
Shaded by date palms, a walk along the seafront promenade, leads to the river outlet, across the Roman bridge and up to the XVI century fortress temple on the Puig den Missa; where it all began!
