To celebrate the declaration of Ibiza's Old Town (Dalt Vila) as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999, every May the old town hosts vibrant celebrations including three days of street parties, musical performances, artists and medieval re-enactments.
This annual event usually attracts over 10,000 people who come to enjoy the multicultural legacy left through the ages by Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and Christians.
The streets are transformed back in time with flags, awnings, banners and murals, filled with market stalls where you can watch 'medieval' crafts being produced, and taken over by street performers such as magicians, acrobats, belly dancers, snake charmers and musicians.
There are also plenty of activities especially for children including magic shows, theatre, games, plus donkey and camel tours around the cathedral square.
As an added bonus, entry to all galleries and museums in Dalt Vila is free during the festival.
