The Basics

The tranquil, history-filled streets of Dalt Vila showcase a quieter side of Ibiza—one at odds with its party-hard reputation. Because of its narrow lanes, Dalt Vila is best explored on foot, with many walking tours of Ibiza Town passing through here. Visitors can also join guided scooter tours and zoom by top attractions such as the Ibiza Cathedral, Museu Puget, and Convento de San Cristobal, or rent a scooter and zip around Dalt Vila independently with the aid of a map.

Historical Highlights of Ibiza Town

Visitors with an interest in Ibiza Town’s lengthy history may want to visit the Necròpolis del Puig des Molins, an ancient burial site with more than 3,000 tombs, some of which date back as far as the 7th century BC. The sturdy walls that encircle the Dalt Vila, meanwhile, are a good spot for an evening stroll. Circumnavigating the entire 1-mile-long (2-kilometer-long) ramparts on foot usually takes around an hour, and is best done at night, when they are impressively lit.
