Dalt Vila, established as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999, is translated as "Upper Town" – and it constitutes the old part of Ibiza. Tucked inside Dalt Vila, you'll find the Catedral de Eivissa with its Catalan Gothic style; the centuries-old Castell d'Eivissa, from which you can enjoy magnificent views; and – for a change of pace – the Museum of Contemporary Art. The area also features a collection of restaurants, bars and shops that flank its quaint streets.
Recent visitors recommend wearing comfortable, sturdy shoes so that you can ascend the steep cobbled streets for a wonderful view of Ibiza and the sea. Others also highlight the variety of shops and restaurants.
The best way to enter Dalt Vila is through its Portal de ses Taules gateway, a huge arched entryway found off Carrer del Comte de Rossello. Keep in mind that this centuries-old fortified spot is open to pedestrians only. Keep in mind that each of the attractions and dining establishments within the Dalt Vila district have their own hours of operations and admission fees. But some of the places of interest are free to visit, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art. For more information, visit Ibiza's tourism website.
