The beautiful island of Ibiza is the third largest of the archipelago, covering an area of more than 500 square kilometers, and with a population of over 70,000. Thanks to its hilly terrain the island offers some magnificent scenery of great beauty and bargain holidays. There are a great deal of pine forests (the Greeks in fact named the island Pitiusa which means "pinery"), as well as almond trees, fig and olive trees, and also palm trees.
An interesting fact about Ibiza is that the use of the windmill and the waterwheels is still quite common, mainly due to the lack of rainfall. Rainy days on this island of almost perpetual sun are something of a luxury.The climate is very mild and produces the phenomenon of an everlasting springtime.
Ibiza (27,685 inhabitants) Ibiza is the island's capital and a lively maritime port, built on the side of a mountain beside the sea. It has some interesting districts, such as San Penya, and many magnificent viewpoints that look out across the sea. The white constructions of its popular districts, which were built following the exquisite architectural lines of the islanders, constitute an unmistakable and picturesque urban ensemble.
The district of Dalt Vila is at the very heart of the city and contains some fine aristocratic mansions, the Town Hall, and the Cathedral which was rebuilt in the 17C. Ibiza was founded by the Carthaginians in the year 654 B.C. Its walls were put up in the 16C and are considered a National Monument since they are the only ones of their kind remaining in Europe.
