Economic and cultural centre of the island, Ibiza (Eivissa in the Catalan language) is the capital of the Pine archipelago comprising Ibiza and Formentera. The city is divided into several distinct areas with the historic districts of Dalt Vila and the Marina that have the biggest concentration of tourist sites. Encircled by great walls and dominated by the cathedral, the Dalt Vila consists of a network of narrow streets that is best suited to exploration on foot. There are magnificent ancestral homes dating back to the Middle Ages and the Punic ruins.
On the outskirts of the old town, the picturesque area of Sa Penya, a very popular site among the gay community, is home to a multitude of bars, restaurants and shops that line the winding alleys that are reminiscent of an Arab medina. Reaching the marina, you will discover the true heart of Ibiza, where the small whitewashed houses are full of trendy shops, restaurants and bars. As dusk falls upon the city, enjoy some tapas, drink a chupito or collect flyers for your evening out. This is only the beginning of a night which can be seemingly endless for the party animals who frequent Ibiza's nightclubs.
As for seaside pleasures, Ibiza has beautiful beaches in the immediate vicinity such as Talamanca, the huge Playa d'en Bossa or Figueretes conveniently located close to the town centre. Outside the old town, the Punic necropolis of Puig de Molins, the largest known monument so far, will arouse the curiosity of history enthusiasts. Housing a multitude of subterranean burial chambers accessible through a well, only one of these caves is open to visitors. The objects from the tombs are included in the exhibition at the Museo del Puig Monografico de Molins, located nearby.
