History of the island

The capital of Ibiza Island is Ibiza town or Eivissa in Catalan. It is one of the oldest European cities which were founded by the Carthaginians. It is interesting that they made an important fortress that would later become the capital city of Pine Islands.

It was founded in the 654th-year BC.

Ibiza is divided into the old town called Dalt Villa and modern part-Eixample. Dalt Villa or upper town has five entrances and it is surrounded with stone bastions because it was a fort. In the old days, it was attacked by pirates and its walls were used as protection.

Now there are many romantic, beautiful streets, squares and cathedrals which are visited by thousands of tourists during the summer. This special environment helps tourists to sense the spirit of history. Streets are narrow and winding and they make a little maze of ancient walls which are located in the center of the new town. It is under UNESCO protection since 1993.

It is interesting that the old merchants from Persia and Lebanon came to Dalt Villa to trade in Cedar oil.
