The Ibiza Castle, also known as Eivissa Castle, is located in Old Town Ibiza. A top the town’s massive hill the castle and it’s other buildings can be found, standing today very much as they did in the 12th century. The castle was built before the walls of the city, which occurred during the Renaissance. Today, the compound includes the Governor’s House, citadel (Almudayna) and 12 towers.
The sand-colored fortress is home to centuries of history and design, mixing not only 12th century medieval architecture with Islamic and even 18th century barracks. During the late 1200s, Alfonso III of Aragon even stayed here at the Governor’s House, located on the southern side of the castle.
Only the exterior of the area can be visited. Located at the top of Old Town, make a day out of exploring this World Heritage site and wander the city before making your way to the grounds of the castle.
