Those arriving at the port of Ibiza, are greeted by the spectacle of Dalt Vila, the fortified Citadel that dominates the city, high on a rock overlooking the Mediterranean. The first settlement dates back to Carthaginians and throughout history has been enriched with presence and domination, in particular Arab and Catalan ones.
Today the high walls of the Renaissance octagonal bastion, protect a labyrinth of steep streets, squares, mysterious caverns and architectural treasures. In 1999 the entire area was declared a World heritage site by UNESCO.
In season the fortress is home to festivals and events, and its narrow streets are filled by the colorful, traditional Ibicencan crowd, thorugh bars, restaurants and shops of all kinds.
For those who love its Bohemian atmosphere and want to stay, the area offers some high level accommodations too.
We recommend two hotels of great fame and tradition, right in the heart of Dalt Vila:
LA TORRE DEL CANONIGO
Build in an ancient tower of the village, this hotel perfectly embodies antique style and chic touch. Ideal for those who want to stay in the movida which animates the Citadel, but does not want to give up privacy and service typically found in an exclusive environment.
The rooms have a magnificent view of The Marina, sa Penya and the Harbour from the balconies with chill out corners and jacuzzi. On the wonderful terrace of the building there is a restaurant of Japanese cuisine with Mediterranean influences, the Kyupiddo, currently one of the most interesting in Ibiza.
MIRADOR DE DALT VILA
A 5 star property with great charm and old tradition. The building dates from the early 20th century and has kept the original materials and finishes, which coexist today with elegant luxury and comfort of a modern boutique hotel.
Small number of rooms (12), and many of them with great panoramic views. Customization stands out also in the high end service. The mix of tradition and modernity features also the atmosphere and the menu of the restaurant and cocktail bar.
Don't miss the opportunity to visit and stay in this precious treasure in the heart of the Mediterranean, perhaps on the occasion of the charming Medieval Festival held every year in may, when Dalt Vila presents with typical Ibicencan joy its fascinating past.
