Surrounding the hilltop Dalt Vila, they're a beloved symbol of Eivissa
Among the world's best preserved
A UNESCO World Heritage Site that's one of the world's best preserved walled towns, these doughty stone walls stretch nearly two kilometres (just over a mile) around Eivissa's historic upper town Dalt Vila. Heptagonal in shape and including seven great bastions, they were built over the latter half of the 16th century by order of King Phillip II and designed by Italian engineer Giovanni Vatista Calvi. One of the symbols of this city, its main entrance is the Portal de Ses Taules.
