A must-see: Dalt Vila
If you are in Ibiza town, you must pay a visit to the acropolis, declared a World heritage site. The construction of the renaissance era wall, composed of seven bulwarks, was encouraged by Charles I and Philip II of Spain in order to keep and defend the Spanish crown's territories. When the island stopped being the target of attacks of Turkish and Berber pirates the acropolis remained for the future as a testimony to that time and today it serves as heritage for all mankind.
