Catalan master Antoni Tàpies is just one of the giants featured in this Eivissa old town institution
Old town, new art
It may be located in Eivissa's old town, Dalt Vila, but the Museu d'Art Contemporani is all about the recent and current (though it's also one of Spain's oldest modern art museums, established in 1969). Names on the walls include Tàpies, Floris, Bechtold, Miralles, Faber, and Micus, as well as a host of Balearics Islands talents you'll likely be discovering for the first time. There's also a great collection of engravings, donated by distinguishe gallery owner Carl van der Voort featuring the best work from the firm Ibizagráfic. Its main garden is also sometimes used as the venue for temporary exhibitions of the most cutting edge art on the contemporary scene. One especially cool thing about the museum is that its recent expansion gives you a peek at some of the remains of the ancient Carthaginian city that was once on this site, uncovered during excavation and construction.
