Plaça d’Espanya, 1, Eivissa.

One of the most renowned districts in Ibiza is the old town, Dalt Vila. It is surrounded by a wall which was built by Felipe II in the 16th century to protect the town from French or Turkish invasion and it was declared, along with old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.

There are various gates to the walled city, the main one being Portal de ses Taules which will let you enter this historic centre of the city. It is well worth entering to see the ancient walls and enjoy the beautiful views from the observation points.

There are various tourist attractions behind the walls, such as the Catedral de Santa María de las Nieves which is a Gothic cathedral completed in the 18th century and built on top of an Arab mosque. Inside the building there is the famous altarpiece of San Gregorio. In the same area, you can also visit Ibiza City Hall and the Museo Arqueológico de Ibiza y Formentera where you follow the progression of history in these islands.

Wander through the narrow, paved streets and have a bite to eat in one of the spectacular restaurants. Take home a souvenir or visit one of the art galleries. Don’t miss Baluarte de Santa Tecla which is the highest point in the city and from which you will see wonderful panoramic views over the city.
