The charms of Dalt Vila in Ibiza
On my latest escape to Ibiza I spent an evening wandering around the old town of Ibiza, aka Dalt Vila and I realised how photogenic this part of the island really is. The next time you visit Ibiza you cannot leave without wandering around the small charming streets of Dalt Vila. Every time I go I end up finding new little streets because it's easy to lose your way around where there's no fixed itinerary. It's the oldest construction of the island and is full of history being a UNESCO World Heritage Site- they say that Christopher Columbus was from Ibiza (even though this has never been officially proven). In Dalt Vila there are lots of lovely bars, restaurants, gift shops, jewellers and art galleries to be discovered.
My best friend and I had the best time finding the cutest spots and taking lots of pictures. From typical white houses with blue windows to small corners covered by bougainvillea and hibiscus, the old town of Ibiza is full of beautiful details (the streets can be very steep and slippery so I would advise wearing flat shoes).
Of course, it's best to go just before sunset to capture the perfect pink cotton candy skies. From the top of Dalt Vila and next to the cathedral there are plenty of spots that offer panoramic views over Ibiza town, the marina, Playa d'en Bossa and Formentera from a far distance.
