The 27 best sights of Ibiza – description and photos

Ibiza sights – 8 most popular places

The capital of nightclubs, the island of the eternal feast, the most partying resort in Europe… But did you know that the legendary Ibiza, whose attractions include many historical, natural and architectural sites, is known not only for beaches, bars and discos? Let’s dispel the myths and look at this island from a different angle! So, what to see in Ibiza as part of a classic tour program? We offer you the top 8 most popular places.

Evening Ibiza

Es Vedra.

When pondering what to see in Ibiza in one day, don’t forget about Es Vedra, the most unusual and mysterious island of the Pitius Archipelago. There are many myths and anomalous phenomena associated with the place, whose outline resembles a giant dragon. “Eyewitnesses” claim that alien ships regularly land here, and the island itself is home to seductive sirens, whose sweet songs have brought more than a hundred guys to their graves. Mention of these creatures can be found as far back as Homer’s Odyssey. It is also said that any home appliances that have been within a few meters of this place immediately malfunction.

Once upon a time there were people living on Es Vedra, but due to the increasing frequency of disappearances of local residents, access to it was closed by official order. Now the island is uninhabited – only mountain goats, birds and lizards live on it. It can only be viewed from afar during a boat trip. Ships depart from Ivisa and San Antonio. The approximate cost of the trip ranges from 15 to 25€.

Es Vedra

Of course, there are brave people who rent boats and sail to Es Vedra on their own. Most of them are thrill-seekers and followers of various mystical cults. It’s not cheap and boat owners confirm that not everyone returns from such trips. The island does have a disorienting effect on travelers. And the reason for this is not some mystique, but a very real magnetic field, disabling cell phones, compasses, navigation devices and other equipment. Location: Cala d’Hort, Ibiza.

Old Town of Ibiza

Ibiza Old Town, built by the natives of Carthage in 654 BC, is one of the main attractions of the island. Over the centuries since its foundation Dalt Vila had time to change several owners, each of which contributed to the appearance of the city new features peculiar only to his people. So, from the ancient Romans there remained two majestic statues at the main gate, from the Moors – the remains of fortress walls with watchtowers, and from the Catalans – the Cathedral, built on the site of an Arab mosque. The greatest pride of this structure is the central altar, decorated with a beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary, the main patroness of the island.

Old Town

As in any other Old City there are museums, souvenir stores, monuments, galleries and other important sites. Most are concentrated around the central Plaza de Villa. Among all these institutions, the Museum of Archaeology deserves special attention, with its unique collection of artefacts belonging to the Bronze Age.

Walking through the narrow streets, you can see not only the traditional medieval mansions, but also watch the archaeological excavations conducted by a Spanish scientific institute. There’s also a hotel that once housed many of the world’s celebrities (including Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin). Dalt Vila is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is protected by the state.

The Fortress of Ibiza

Deciding to read photos and descriptions of the sights of Ibiza, pay attention to the Castell de Eivissa, built in the 12th century and considered to be the oldest structure on the island. The castle, built for purely defensive purposes, is located in the heart of the old town. At one time its strong fortification walls hid the dwellings of the citizens, the Cathedral, built on the site of the Arab mosque, the Governor’s House, which hosted many famous personalities, and other objects of medieval “infrastructure”.

Ibiza Castle

Over the years the city fortress has been subjected to numerous reconstructions and renovations, thanks to which elements of various architectural styles appeared in its appearance. Even in the daytime it is quite nice here, and at night, when the bastions and towers are illuminated, everything looks even more beautiful. And best of all – from the defensive walls there is a beautiful view of the bay, the port, and the outskirts of the city. At the entrance to the fortress there are several cafes. There are street musicians and sellers of various souvenirs.

Location: Carrer Bisbe Torres Mayans 14, 07800, Ibiza.

Port of Ibiza

Among the most visited attractions of Ibiza in Spain is the port located in the capital. You can get here not only from the other islands of the Balearic archipelago (Menorca, Mallorca and Formentera), but also from the mainland (Denia, Valencia and Barcelona). Puerto de Ibiza, built in the old fishing district, has everything you need for a comfortable holiday – cafes, bars, restaurants, stores, casinos, hotels, nightclubs and many other facilities. In addition, it is from here that most of the sightseeing boats depart, making sightseeing trips to the surrounding area.

Port of Ibiza

Another feature of the harbor is the presence of a small handicraft market with ethnic souvenirs, dishes, clothing and jewelry. There are picturesque streets running away from the harbor and a monument to “The Corsair” erected in memory of those who defended the island from pirates.

Location: Calle Andenes, 07800, Ibiza.

Church of Puig de Missa

The Church of Puig-de-Missa, rising atop the hill of the same name, is a beautiful white-stone structure equipped with its own defensive tower. In the mid-16th century it was an important strategic point in which the town’s inhabitants sheltered from numerous pirate raids. Today it is one of the most visited attractions of the resort.

The interior of the sanctuary, complete with many intra-wall burials, is modest and simple. The only exceptions are the Catholic altar in the Churrigueresque style and the multi-arched porch with strong columns dating from the early 17th century. But as you go up to the church you have a wonderful view of the Mediterranean and the streets of the town. Next to the church there is an ancient cemetery, a columbarium and a small ethnographic museum. But to see the old watermill, you have to go a little further.

Cap Blanc Aquarium

If you do not know what to see in Ibiza, go to Cap Blanc, a huge aquarium set up in one of the natural caves. Once upon a time, smugglers hid in this hollow. Then they bred fish, lobsters and octopuses for the bazaars of Barcelona. And only in the late 90s of the last century, after a major reconstruction in the lobster cave, as the locals call it, was opened a unique aquarium, which shelters the main representatives of the Mediterranean fauna.

Today, Cap Blanc is not only one of the island’s best attractions, but also an important scientific center whose staff is trying to increase the population of endangered marine life. Inside the cave is an underground lake divided into 2 parts. Each contains relatively large marine fish and other animals that need the same conditions. You can look at them closer from the wooden bridge that runs right over the water. In addition to this lake in the cave, there are several reservoirs designed for smaller animals – stars, seahorses, sponges, crabs, etc. The volume of the largest tank is about 5 thousand liters. Also, rescued sea turtles are often placed in the Cap Blanc aquarium and then released back into the wild.
