The shrine at Es Cuieram (Es Culleram), one of the most important sites on Ibiza dedicated to the Phoenician Goddess Tanit has been given a new lease of life and, more importantly, been preserved for future generations. The Consell Insular hopes that the site will be open to the public during the course of this Summer, although no further details were available at the time of going to press.

It has been known for several years that the cave of Es Cuieram is in imminent danger of collapse, a danger that can easily be appreciated from the outside. The “cave” in fact consists of a series of openings between a series of fallen rocks. Although the current configuration has been stable for several thousand years, experts reported several years ago that the cave was unstable and in imminent danger of collapse. Since then it has been closed to the public.
