The Castell d’Eivissa of Ibiza (Spain), called Dalt Vila, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. It marks the perimeter of the oldest part of the city.

The old walls were built in the 16th century to protect it from attacks by the Turks, and have taken forty years to build.

The walled enclosure is shaped like an irregular heptagon and a defensive bastion protrudes from each of its angles.

There are various entrances to the site (portals), the main one being the Portal de Ses Taules. Other well-preserved gates are the Portal Nou, the Portella de Sella and the Portal de Soto es Fosc.

The walls contain within them an important historical legacy, declared a World Heritage Site.

Address: Carrer Bisbe Torres Mayans, 14, 07800 Eivissa, Illes Balears, Spain.
