Photographer's Note

Ibiza, known world-wide for its night, conserve has still broken of its charm hippie, inherited of years 60, but today it is well cosmopolita and cool. Together with Palm of Majorca, Menorca and Formentera, is part of the Islands Baleares, they are to the east of the Espanha. Between its innumerable paradisiacal beaches, most popular is Playa d´en Bossa, Figueretes and Sant Antoni (San Antonio), celebrity for the seen the sun set of the mythical Coffee del Sea. The capital has the same name of the island , Eivissa in the local dialect, the imponent Dalt Village, the historical center of the city, is surrounded by a medieval wall that hides small full labyrinths of surprising sights. La Marina is the quarter that is between the Village and the port, with pretty restaurants, galleries of art and store.
In the Dalt Village are situated the main cultural tourist attractions of Ibiza . A small walled, constructed city in century XVI, to defend the island of possible attacks. Narrow streets and white houses, a castle, slopes and small labyrinths. The Vestibule of Ses Taules (Vestibule of the Registrations) allows the entrance in the village, where they are also the Archaeological Museum of Ibiza and Formentera, the Necropolises Puig DES Molins, the Museum of Art Contemporary and the Cathedral of Saint Maria, of gótico-baroque architecture. Most interesting is to see the vestiges of all the peoples who already had inhabited Ibiza, since the cartagineses and fenícios, passing for the mulçumanos and Romans, until the Catalan conquest in century XIII. During the stroll, it gives attention in the simple architecture and charmosa of the place, it reserves a time to appreciate the sight of the sea and the city of different points and uses to advantage the small bars and restaurants to rest of the walked one.

I was Ibiza in work and I only had one morning to visit the center of the city before coming back toward Portugal, was much heat and much sun.
