Publish Date: 28 November 2023

There is more to Ibiza than just beaches, nightlife, and a vibrant social scene. If you’re looking for something different, we invite you to look around our island’s capital, Eivissa.

Eivissa, known as Ibiza Town, boasts a wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site, historical Phoenician architecture, a stunning cathedral, plenty of museums and art galleries, and a maze of streets full of stylish boutiques and upscale restaurants. It is one place you do not want to miss out on. You’ll find everything you’re looking for in Ibiza Town, whether you’re interested in culture, fun, or shopping.
Find out what we recommend: the city experience!

Dalt Vila (Ibiza Old Town) Ibiza

Dalt Vila, also known as the Old Town, is located at the top of the mountain and is the city’s most famous landmark. This World Heritage Site (1999) features historical architecture, monumental castle grounds, and the central Roman Catholic cathedral, Santa Maria d’Eivissa.

Visitors interested in Dalt Vila’s history and fortified area, which has been occupied since Phoenician times, should consider taking a Dalt Vila guided tour, either privately or in public groups. Getting to know the ‘Old Town’ is best done with an expert to show you the old streets, monuments, churches, and all the main sights.

In contrast, if you want to take in the local atmosphere at your own pace, you can casually stroll up the steep, winding cobbled streets dotted with al fresco-style restaurants, bars, boutiques, and artisan shops to the mountaintop. Reaching the summit is quite a treat, offering outstanding panoramic views over the town below, the port, Ses Salines, and over to Formentera.

Visitors interested in history may also want to visit the Archaeological Museum of Dalt Vila, where museum artefacts span over three thousand years of Pityusic history.

The fashionable A-listers spot – Marina Botafoch, Ibiza

Marina Botafoch sits right in the city centre. Aside from super motorboats and yachts, you’ll find stylish penthouses and luxury apartments along the harbour front.

An array of five-star hotels and clubs are scattered along the gorgeous promenade, including Ibiza’s Gran Hotel, Ibiza’s Casino, Hotel Pacha (next to Pacha Ibiza nightclub) and Chino’s.

The area has a lot of upmarket restaurants, cafes, and bars, like Cappuccino Grand Cafe, Lio, and IT Restaurant, which attract plenty of VIP clientele. During the day, this area takes on a more tranquil environment, where visitors can relax and admire the views overlooking the city’s Old Town across the blue glistening sea. At night, though, the area becomes a socialite hotspot with a vibrant party scene.

Food and Shopping in Ibiza Town

The city of Ibiza Town is filled with one-of-a-kind stores, market stalls, and great eateries for visitors who prefer a more modern culture and lifestyle. You’ll be delighted by the abundance of places to sit and absorb the city atmosphere, whether you park up for lunch after exploring Vara del Rey square or venture through the draw bridge gate and onto the main Dalt Vila restaurant spots. We recommend hanging out on the rooftop of the Montesol Hotel, where you can enjoy a fancy cocktail while viewing the Dalt Vila mountaintop and port. Alternatively, you could visit one of the area’s many cafes if you want something more budget-friendly. A variety of local dishes and drinks are available for a fraction of the price.
