Eivissa is the capital of the island.
So, visiting it is one of the priorities of your trip. The old town has a crazy charm combining the strength of traditions and the modernism necessary for the comfort of today’s visitors.
Walking around Eivissa is like diving into the very heart of the island and its history. As you walk through the narrow streets, among the houses with white walls, you will discover the remains of ancient civilizations that have passed through these lands: from the Romans to the Turks, including the Phoenicians.
Proof of this rich past is the fortification of the city, declared a UNESCO humanitarian heritage site. Originally, this wall, wanted by King Felipe II in the 16th century, was used to protect the island from looting.
Five centuries later, the looting is far away and Eivissa became a perfect destination to get yourself in the island’s culture.
During your stroll, visit the cathedral, the Chapel of San Ciriaco or the town hall, where various exhibitions are held. And if you want to learn more about the Ibiza history, visit the Madina Yabisa Interpretation Centre. Thanks to numerous audio and video documents you will learn more about the Muslim conquest of the island in the Middle Ages. But one of the most pleasant pleasures is still to stroll through the streets to discover the Plaza de Vila or the Plaza de Sa Carrossa.
As a capital, Eivissa is full of services and infrastructure, such as hospitals, post offices and many commercial areas. All the shops are concentrated around the port, in the Marina district. A district that hosts hotels, restaurants, and bars to spend your evenings.
