For this reason, if you have ever asked yourself the typical question “What to do in Ibiza?” Here are the 4 places you can’t miss during your holidays on the “White Island”.
Ibiza Cathedral, one of the icons of the island
Located in the heart of the historic centre of Dalt Vila, a little over 15 minutes drive from the Dorado Ibiza Suites Hotel, Ibiza Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of the Virgin of Snows, is one of the main attractions in the centre of Ibiza Town. Built over the old mosque of Yebisah, the cathedral of Ibiza is a Gothic-Catalan style construction dating from the 13th century. From 1782, when the bishopric of Ibiza was officially created, this cathedral, which pays homage to Santa María la Mayor, acquired cathedral status.
Las Dalias, the most popular street market in Ibiza
The market in Las Dalias is, together with the one in Punta Arabí de Es Caná, one of the most popular markets in Ibiza. Located between Santa Eulalia and San Carlos, this unique market, which emerged in the 1960s with the arrival of the first foreign artists in Ibiza, has positioned itself as one of the places on the island with the greatest cultural exchange, creating a meeting point for painters, sculptors, craftsmen and designers from all over the world.
Las Dalias market opens its doors every Saturday of the year and is complemented, throughout the summer months, by a night market with a multitude of colourful stops and all kinds of live musical performances.
Dalt Vila, a journey into the past in the heart of Ibiza
Recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site under the title Ibiza, biodiversity and culture, the historic centre of Dalt Vila is today one of Ibiza’s most popular sites. A must-see for many tourists, Dalt Vila not only offers one of the best panoramic views of the entire island, but is also an exceptional place to “travel” to the past, discovering the ancient city walls of the sixteenth century, which served, in the time of Carlos V, to protect the island from Turkish attacks.
Es Vedrà, the’magical’ islet of Ibiza
Located in the south-west of Ibiza, just in front of Cala d’Hort, Es Vedrà is the most characteristic island of Ibiza. With all its surroundings protected as a nature reserve, this islet, which rises 382 metres above sea level, is visible from many parts of Ibiza, Formentera and even from the Iberian Peninsula. In recent years, Es Vedrà has been associated with all kinds of myths and legends that speak of magical properties resulting from the accumulation of energy.
