Best for Culture - Expert review of Dalt Vila
Presiding proudly over the kingdom of Ibiza is Dalt Vila, a centuries-old fortified city dating back to the Carthinigans, that has kept out pirates, attackers and wannabe conquerors and now acts as a fully functioning city featuring the island’s cathedral, museums and many amazing lookout points. The old stone walls really do look impenetrable and it’s not hard to imagine battles taking place here. You can see it from miles away as you drive into Ibiza Town, a stark contrast to the rest of the town’s architecture, especially when it’s dramatically lit up at night. And I live in it!
I pinch myself each and every day when I walk up the giant drawbridge, through those huge wooden gates and along the quaint cobbled streets to my apartment to make sure I’m not dreaming. When I first came here on holiday I couldn’t believe people actually lived here, but now I am one of them! It’s every little girl’s princess-in-a-castle fantasy come true.
