Long before our era began, the small and fertile island, now known as Ibiza, was situated on busy shipping routes through the Mediterranean and because of its strategic position and natural sources, such as salt and limestone, it was occupied by many civilizations for centuries long.
The Phoenicians settled at Sa Caleta around 650 bc, where they created a prosperous salt industry. Proof was found during the 80s and 90s, when a large, primitive Phoenician settlement was uncovered close to Sa Caleta, that was declared world heritage site by UNESCO in December 1999.
Later on the Phoenicians moved to the nearby bay where they, in honor of their god Bes, founded the town Ibosim, on top of a little mountain. Later the town was named Vila d’Eivissa or simply Vila.

The fortified part of the old town, or Upper Town named DALT VILA strategically faces both the sea and the acropolis, and shows remains of each culture that ruled the island, from Phoenician-Punic to Medieval Moors. With on top the cathedral of Santa Maria d’Eivissa and its strong defensive Renaissance walls, connected with seven bastions, bastion de Sant Pere, (next to Reina Sofia Park), the Portal de ses Taules (with outer bailey), Santa Llúcia’s bastion (historic powder magazine), Sant Jordi’s bastion (archaeological remains Islamic defensive wall), Sant Bernat’s bastion(views Formentera - Ses Salines), bastion de Santa Tecla, (defense wall & vantage point), Sant Joan ’s bastion (was redirected and modernized and made accessible for local cars with permit) was considered an impregnable fortress.

For protection the town of Eivissa depended on its fortified city walls for many centuries until in 1555 renovations of the historical structures started according to the original outer edge of the medieval fortification. By the end of the 16th century the immense work was completed with some alterations on the original design, the redirected bastion of Sant Joan, that was opened with a gate the Porta del Mar or Porta de ses Taules, in the rampart that connects it to the bastion Santa Llúcia.
Also a modern extension to the city, named Eixample was built just outside the fortification.
The Old Town of Ibiza was fully restored in 1986.

The Acropolis of Dalt Vila, today is a remarkable place that breaths history and displays its mysterious and often violent past during regular guided & dramatized tours through the streets of Dalt Vila and its districts la Marina and sa Penya, showing visitors all corners, steps, tunnels and gates of the city’s impressive ramparts.
Vila d’Eivissa, the capital of Ibiza island, today plays an important role in the islanders daily life’s.
Ibiza’s rich archaeological, historical, artistic and ethnological heritage is preserved in the some of the most important museums of the island, situated in Dalt Vila.
