Two days on the third-largest Balearic Island give you plenty of time to enjoy spectacular beaches, party hard at a nightclub, and get off the beaten track. Here’s how to make the most of two days in Ibiza.
This vast burial ground helped earn Ibiza Town recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999. Visitors can follow a path leading into the burial caverns in the side of the hill and tour a large museum containing various treasures unearthed from the burial sites. Some of the burial caves are open to the public, allowing visitors a closer look. Many guided tours of Ibiza Town, including bicycle and scooter tours, include a stop at this impressive archaeological site.
Things to Know Before You Go
- The Necropolis del Puig des Molins is a must-visit for history buffs and first time visitors.
- Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
- The site is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers, with the exception of the underground burial caves.
How to Get There
The site is on Calle Via Romana in Ibiza Town, within easy walking distance of the city center.
When to Get There
The necropolis and museum are open from Tuesday to Sunday throughout the year, with longer hours during the winter months (October to April). The site is closed on Mondays and holidays. Plan to visit on a good weather day, as much of the site is outdoors and exposed to the elements.
A Noble Cemetery This corner of Ibiza served as a final resting place for nobles and wealthy Carthaginians from all corners of the empire. Archaeologists and historians believe this site was chosen to meet some specific burial requirements, one of which was a site free of poisonous creatures; you’ll find no snakes or scorpions on the island.
