If you are thinking about going to Ibiza downtown these days, from today and during all weekend the medieval festival take place again. As an Ibizan, I really enjoy the peaceful of my island, and events like that. Because they brighten up the streets and the walled areas of the Dalt Vila old city.
The Ibiza medieval festival is a cultural event that commemorate Ibiza as World Heritage by UNESCO, and more than 100,000 visitors enjoy this unique event in Dalt Vila streets every year. It creates like an incredible spectacle that you should visit. When you are walking around the streets, in some how you can contemplate the past of the city and the different medieval traditions, as you could see centuries ago in our island. Moreover, you can enjoy several artisanal snack stalls, sweets and artisan products in general.
My weakness is pepper cake that nuns prepare in their stall every year.
Last year I went to the festival with some English pilots friends, they missed Ibiza and enjoyed a lot the island so I proposed them an original and different plan that they’re normally used to.
What they loved the most is the fact that the Streets are surrounded by artisans, goldsmiths, makers of chocolates, bird tamers, jugglers and dancers. Also during these days there are a spectacular decoration, good music and live concerts.
There are around 172 artisanal stops, taverns and local products that are divided by 10 different areas and where you can find almost 14 entertainment groups in the street.
One tip is to park far away of these main streets, go for walk or use the minibus that the council provide you and where you can find in Playa Vara de Rei.
Parking in the city center is a barmy stuff!
After enjoying the party, we went to see the incredible sea and port views while we took some beers and we remembered some of our adventures as pilots.
Finally, we ended in Playa d’en Bossa and where you can find many bars, pubs and discos.
They booked at the Gran Palladium White Island, they were delighted with this hotel because is a 5 star hotel and recently renovated. They were impressed with it even they have already been in other Palladium hotels in different countries.
