Ibiza & Formentera Archaeological Museum

You'll really dig it

Ibiza these days may be widely thought of as a beaches-and-party isle, but civilisation here and on neighbouring Formentera stretches back into prehistory, and at this Dalt Vila museum founded in 1907 you'll get a look at an astonishing timeline, which before the Catalan Christians took over in 1235 included Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, and Moors. It displays hundreds of valuable artifacts and fragments found in local excavations - amphorae, pottery and other decorated ceramics, jewelry, tools of daily life, and statues from tiny to quite large. Have a look, too, at the ceilings in here, in mudéjar (Moorish-influenced) style with fine Moorish and Gothic details. An annex to this museum is the Phoenician necropolis (aka cemetery) down the hill in Puig des Molins.
