For those in search of culture, Dalt Vila or High Town is a stunning piece of Ibicencan heritage to behold. Set at the pinnacle of Ibiza Town; the views at your disposal are by far some of the most impressive on the island. With a colourful history, Dalt Vila has tales to tell as far back as the 16th century. Winding cobbled streets line the way up to the top, so a comfy pair of shoes are recommended for this trip back in time. To truly say you have seen Ibiza, this is a definitely a journey you should take, even for those staying in the resort of San Antonio, Dalt Vila is still only a 20 minute car ride away.
You will find the main entrance through the Portal De Ses Taules. This is partnered by two dominating statues which will lead you onto a spacious cobbled courtyard, the Plaza De Vila. It is from here you can begin your ascent into the maze-like pathways, from which you can explore the delights of the beautiful Ibicencan architecture.
Amongst the ancient streets are tiny chapels hidden away, locals selling authentic souvenirs and not to forget the magnificent panoramic views at every turn. From above, you will be able to peruse the famous red tiles of the Santo Domingo church and the statute of local military hero Joaquin Vara De Rey. We also suggest that you take time to experience the Museo Puig De Molins which is home to a stunning collection of archaeological artefacts from the Carthaginian era.
Dalt Vila also plays a part in the musical spirit which infuses the island. Hand-picked by the International Music Summit (IMS) as the prime location for their exclusive events. In May 2013 the 6th Summit used Dalt Vila as the host for its celebrations, seeing acclaimed DJs such as Fat Boy Slim and Pete Tong take to stage. This September sees the IMS return with the much loved Annie Mac for her only performance on the island this year.
