The city of Ibiza harbours a historic and natural treasure in its walled city of Dalt Vila with a unique cultural legacy that was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1999. It rises on a hill in the city of Ibiza and is a place where numerous civilisations have left their mark, such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Vandals, Arabs and Christians.
Between its walls lie some of the island’s most important buildings such as the Cathedral, an iconic symbol of Ibiza, and the best way of discovering them is with the dramatised visits organised by the city council. From March to December, Ibiza City Council organises these dramatised visits to the city’s historic centre in order to discover how the walls were constructed and the context in which they were built, as well as the way of life of the different cultures that have passed through Dalt Vila over the centuries.
This is a group experience which will take you on a trip back in time through a route that begins in the Portal de ses Taules, continuing along the cobbled streets of the walled town passing through the Plaça del Sol, then up the streets of Sant Josep and Major, ending up in the Plaça de la Catedral.
