Iglesia San Rafael is without doubt one of the most beautiful churches on Ibiza. It's a bit of a climb but well worth the effort. An experience not to be missed.

The pic is of Sant Elm cathedral in Dalt Vila but half the reviews are of the church at Sant Rafel de sa Creu which is afew miles outside Ibiza town on the road to Sant Antoni de Portmany.

As we were meandering aound the old areas we heard this wonderful and delightful singing echoing down the street. Upon further investigation we found the melodic tones were emulating from this Church. What a find both the Church and the choral rendering ! ! !

Year 1997, I got married in this church. It was a fantastic day. This little church is on the top of the mountain in San Rafael...beautiful view. For me this place is very special, lots of memories.

Iglesia San Rafael is located in d'alt Villa and has the charm of typical southern Spanish churches. The church is located close to Museo Puget, the cathedral, the castle etc but you can easily miss it, so plan your visit carefully as to what you want to see in this part of town. Take a taxi to the top but... More

Not sure if the photo is correct - I see the cathedral from Dalt Vila there, but the Sant Rafel church is still one of my favourites - sit down on the bench and watch the town of Ibiza come alive at nighttime

Authentic as it only can be in Ibiza, the location just in the outskirts of the village. Lovely views fron the entrance of the church towards Ibiza town in the distance.

Worth the walk alone. Stunning views from the church area. Don't try this during the hottest parts as there isn't a lot of shade. Lovely to do just at sunset.

Just the fact that you have to go through the beautiful old town of Ibiza to get there is totally worth doing it...it is extremely charming. Ware comfortable shoes.
