“Beautiful Old Town”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Visited in November when barely anyone was there. It was quite windy but beautiful, situated on top of a large hill on the sea. The quaint white buildings covered in greenery, with colored windows and doors are enchanting. Get lost in the tiny streets, take those stairs that you might not know where they lead, and circumnavigate the huge walls encircling the town. It's small so you can't get lost, and even if you do for a moment, that's part of the experience!

“Good fort, better views!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

D'Alt Vila was the very last stop on our Ibiza trip. In fact, thanks to the fact that we missed our bus to Ibiza Town, we only had about half an hour at D'Alt Vila. We spent that half an hour running up the fort, looking around, and running back down to catch our bus to the airport.

Even though we spent no time at all at D'Alt Vila, it was still quite impressive. We didn't get to see much of the fort, but we did get some great views of the island. I'd definitely recommend stopping by here!

“Impressive UNESCO world heritage site”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Spend a full afternoon walking round the winding cobbled streets as you move from busy piazza's to quite back streets. It is worth making it all the way to the Cathedral at the top!

“Old Town”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

A place you should visit, but have to say not all it is cracked up to be . The walk up to the Cathedral is a killer. ... Be sure to have you're breakfast before climbing the hill

“Impressive Fort”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This fort commands a towering position above Ibiza Town. On entering through one of several gates a tough up & down walk awaits. We walked around the walls to all the bastions which have great views over the town and bay area.
In the centre there are many narrow winding streets, stairways and tunnels to explore. There are also plenty of bars, restaurants and shops.
All told this was a very enjoyable visit to a historic fortress but be warned it's not for anyone with walking of breathing difficulties.
