Eivissa Contemporary Art Museum (MACE): Located in the heart of the old town in a series of vaulted rooms, the museum houses a collection of paintings and engravings made by local and international artists since the 1960’s to the present day.

Dalt Vila: You’re better off on foot, in sensible shoes, exploring the narrow, winding, steep cobbled streets and magnificent views from the breaks in the high ramparts and the vast terraces at each level (Dalt Vila actually means ‘Upper Town’). The dramatic main entrance is up a slope, crossing a drawbridge through the Portal de Ses Taules, flanked by mighty statues in roman stone, entering into an ancient cobbled stone courtyard, giving immediately on to the Plaza de Vila or main square. The other entrance, Portal Nou (reached from behind the Plaza del Parque) has a more gradual ascent. Take your time as there’s so much fascinating detail.
