explanation

English (fluent)

The historic walled old town


Lets go exploring the narrow, winding, steep cobbled streets and magnificent views from the breaks in the high ramparts and the vast terraces at each level (Dalt Vila actually means 'High Town'). The dramatic main entrance is up a slope, crossing a drawbridge through the Portal de Ses Taules, flanked by mighty statues in roman stone, entering into an ancient cobbled stone courtyard, giving immediately on to the Plaza de Vila or main square.

The other entrance, Portal Nou (reached from behind the Plaza del Parque) has a more gradual ascent. Take your time as there's so much fascinating detail. Traditionally black clad Ibicencos, untouched by time or change, go about their lives in the ancient, Gothic Catalan buildings overhanging the streets.

Sturdy wooden doors ajar reveal spacious stone courtyards and private chapels. The gift shops and art galleries on the walk up to the cathedral are treasure troves of the unusual and unique works of talented local crafts people. A few shops & restaurants open Oct-May
