  • More about Ibiza

A visit not to be missed by any visitor to Ibiza is that of the walled site of Dalt Vila. These 16th century walls make up one of the Ibizan assets considered to be World Heritage by UNESCO, since 1999.

The signposting job carried out by Eivissa City Council has converted Dalt Vila into an authentic open-air museum. Following different routes, there are a series of informative panels next to each of the significant features that are part of the walled site. There are three routes through the monumental site: the classical one, which offers a general vision of the historic site; that of the bastions, which runs round the perimeter of the walled city; and the unknown route, designed to enjoy the charm of the narrow streets of Dalt Vila.

The most impressive entrance to the old city is the Portal de ses Taules, opposite the Mercat Vell. From here, visitors start a trip through history in which they can visit monuments such as the Cathedral, the City Hall, the Plaça d’Espanya, Sant Ciriac Chapel, etc.

During the second weekend in May, the people of Ibiza celebrate the anniversary of the declaration of the city as World Heritage. The walled city of Dalt Vila returns to the Middle Ages and visitors can enjoy strolling through its streets, sharing it with the most diverse characters from the period, such as minstrels, jugglers, magicians, jesters and puppets. In addition, at different stalls they can acquire traditionally made products, garments, jewellery or home-made food products.
