Ibiza old town guide for Muslim travelers
Explore the cobbled streets, the numerous attractions and the local shops of this beautiful Baleary Island in Spain
When in Ibiza, a visit to Eivissa Dalt Vila is a must. Dalt Vila refers to the oldest part of Ibiza’s Old Town and is therefore the ideal place for those looking to explore and discover. Literally translating to ‘Ibiza Upper Town’.
A lot of this old town has in fact been named an UNESCO World Heritage site, as it is home to networks of narrow, winding, steep cobbled streets and incredible architecture. A great way to explore this part of town is on foot.
Visitors to the area will start off their tour at the main entrance consisting of a drawbridge and statues. They will then come across the Plaza de Vila; a lively square, as well as the 14th century Cathedral of Santa Maria d’Eivissa, the Necropolis of Puig des Molins; which is a fascinating cemetery with a network of burial chambers hidden deep underground, remnants from Arab, Catalan and Renaissance periods, numerous shops and restaurants, a preserved fortified acropolis, the Museu Arqueologic d’Eivissa i Formentera; which is a free museum, and many more. Although the area is a popular nightlife spot, during the day, it makes a great destination for shopping, sightseeing and people watching.
Small coves lapped by the intense blue Mediterranean, pine forests that practically embrace the sea, days spent on-board a yacht, sleepy villages full of rural charm, luxury beach clubs, accommodation in paradise-like settings…
Ibiza is a heavenly Mediterranean destination, a place where you can let your hair down and enjoy the laid-back hippy atmosphere of its fashion and street markets, chill out on a Bali bed next to the sea or watch the sunset surrounded by beautiful scenery. Ibiza is so authentic that it can combine the world’s most exciting nightlife with a UNESCO World Heritage town and Biodiversity Reserves.
