IBIZA: DALT VILA

The old town of Ibiza, called Dalt Vila, is lovely, so I wasn't surprised when I learned it is a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

Entering through the Portal de ses Taules in the district of Sa Penya, we went throught an arcaded courtyard. From here a lively street full of small shops brought us to the city walls.

The views from the city walls of the cathedral, the harbor and the districts of Sa Penya and La Marina are really nice. Even far away you can see vaguely Formentera.

From the walls we walked through narrow streets to the Carrer Major, which leaded us to the charming Cathedral Square.

Next I would like to show you some pictures of this route:
