D’Alt Villa, the fortress, literally towers above the town of Ibiza known as Eivissa. From the top of the fortress you can soak in magnificent views of the harbour below. The scenic splendour and the historical significance of the place draws millions of tourists from around the world each year.
You can also find a well stocked museum and a Church if you were to look around at D’Alt Villa. The archaeological museum here has a splendid collection of things from the Carthaginian era. One of the things that give D'Alt Villa and Ibiza Old Town its charm is the quaint narrow streets. The homes here are unique with their pretty creepers and beautiful potted plants. You can find them literally in almost every building in the town. There are a number of elegantly decorated restaurants and bars as you descend from the fortress. Although these bars and restaurants can appear to be quite sober during the days, come nightfall and they come alive. From candle lit dinners to live music you can find them all in D’Alt Villa’s throbbing nightlife.
