Ibiza has become almost one of the most famous for hosting important millionaires who feel passion for the Balearic territory and also for having the most impressive parties on the planet.

The landscape, especially in the north, is a set of almond, olive and fig trees, with beautiful hills lit under a bright sun. Similarly, the city of Ibiza retains the air of small capital rural that makes it very characteristic.

What can I visit on the island?

El old town of Ibiza, also called high city, is a miniature citadel of almost circular shape. The Portal de ses Taules, in the wall of the fortification, from the 16th century, has a beautiful carved shield of the kingdom of Aragon, which in its day and also in its history, belonged to the Balearic Islands in the middle of the Middle Ages.

One of the most striking buildings on the island is the church of Santo Domingo, from the sixteenth century, in which we can see three red-tiled domes. The church has a baroque interior, with a barrel vault and beautiful frescoes on the walls.

In Ibiza we also have room to museums and, the Museum of Contemporary Art, is one of the most representative of the city. In this museum we have works by Tápies and Millares, among many other painters.

  • Talamanca: It is very close to the urban area, therefore, access to it is very simple. It emphasizes its enormous extension and its little depth which makes it nothing dangerous besides, there are no gales, so to do water sports such as light sailing is a pleasure. This beach is very well located and is ideal to go with the little ones thanks to its low rate of danger, if it were not enough, it is not overcrowded which makes your visit much more pleasant.
  • Cala Conta: Ibiza stands out for its coves and Cala Conta, is one of the favorites for tourists. With marvelous crystalline turquoise waters, the cove of Cala Conta is irresistible for everyone, therefore, in the summer months, it is not advisable to go if you are looking for something quiet. However, the visit is required while in Ibiza.

Sant Antoni, second city of IbizaIt was named after the Romans Portus Magnus because of the natural harbor. This old fishing village is today one of the most important tourist attractions of Ibiza.

The great urban development of the population means that the parish church of Sant Antoni, from the 14th century, is practically drowned in the middle of a forest of modern and high-rise hotels.

To the north of Sant Antoni, on the road to Cala Salada, is the Chapel of Saint Agnes, a Paleo-Christian temple. The discovery of this chapel was back in the 1907 year and was full of Arab weapons and fragments of ceramic objects.
