It is worth discovering the center of Ibiza, we guarantee this. In Ibiza there is a magical atmosphere, an energy that binds you to it and comes from various places: eg will see, the coves and sunsets of Sant Antonio but certainly also from its historical center.
The old town, Dalt Vila as the islanders call it, is not difficult to reach on foot. We take advantage of this on a day when the weather in Ibiza seems uncertain. From the port you can see the ancient walls, just follow those to get to the heart of Ibiza.
Before arriving in the historical center of the city we notice the beautiful contemporary art museum of Ibiza, a completely white structure with modern design.
The surrounding walls that guard the old city are one of the most beautiful viewpoints on the island: the white houses, boats and crystal clear waters are perfectly visible from here.
We thought there weren’t many people to visit the city instead we are amazed by the fact that there are families, couples, groups of friends. There are very beautiful spots from which to photograph or be photographed: views, terrace, paths and towers.
Continuing to climb, in addition to the fantastic views you can admire the Church of the Hospitalet overlooking the sea is dedicated to the Madonna delle Grazie.
The Cathedral Square is certainly impressive. Formerly Islamic construction, it then became a Catholic sacred place and a perfect example of Catalan baroque.
We continue our acquaintance with the center of Ibiza and look for the small and famous red lighthouse. We walk through the entire city, passing through kiosks and small souvenir shops where we buy some gifts to take home.
We arrive at La Marina, the port of Ibiza where luxurious yachts are docked and there are very chic bars where you can drink cocktails or smoke hookah in the evening. Walking on the port of Ibiza in the early afternoon is pleasant even if the heat is really asphyxiating now.
The center of Ibiza and the Marina in the evening are quite crowded with people of all kinds, who has a drink, who eats something in one of the restaurants on the harbor and who walks with an ice cream.
Outside the Brasa, one of the best known and most scenic restaurants in Ibiza, there is a long line of people waiting for a table to open. There is a continuous going on of cars, it is very difficult to find parking on the blue stripes, so many are forced to park in one of the huge public parking lots.
The evening walk in the center of Ibiza is certainly a quieter alternative to the more chaotic Plaja d’en bossa but is equally fun.
The morning walk instead is a golden opportunity to rediscover the daily life and the warmth of Southern Spain.
