ibiza townIbiza Town is the only city on the island and until recent years the only place large enough to be described as anything more than a village.

Confusingly, it is signposted all over the island as “Eivissa”, which is the Catalan name. However, fortunately the island is so small that all roads lead to Ibiza eventually, so it’s almost impossible to get lost!

The old walled town is so spectacular that it has been chosen as a World Heritage site and, as you approach the island by sea for the first time, it serves as an appropriately stunning introduction to the Pandora’s Box that is Ibiza.

Built on a high promontory jutting out into the sea, the old town with its massive walls crowned by the cathedral serves as a global icon the world over.
