Ibiza Town tourist attractions

| November 22, 2011

The capital of the Pitiuses Islands (Ibiza and Formentera) preserves many vestiges of its past. By the 6th century B.C., it was already a very important Phoenician-Punic colony for its time. From Carthage’s point of view, the city was a strategic base from which it could dominate the Mediterranean. The necropolis of Puig des Molins is a clear example of this pinnacle in the city’s early history. As its name (i.e., “Puig”) indicates, the site is situated on one of the city’s high points and the mills (i.e., “molins”) refer to flour mills that existed in the area during the last century. Close on 4,000 tombs dating from the Punic and Roman periods have been found on the site of the necropolis. Continue Reading
