Madina Yabisa Interpretation Centre, Ibiza Town

Take a look at Ibiza Town's history in this museum

Featured in: | Updated

This museum is located within one of the oldest houses in Dalt Vila, Casa de La Cúria, built around the old Andalusian wall and shows Ibiza town when it was a medieval Muslim town called Madina Yabisa, an important Muslim city during the Middle Ages.

A joint project by the University of Barcelona and the Ibiza Town Council’s Heritage Department, the Madina Yabisa Interpretation Centre was inaugurated in May 2007. 

Using modern audio-visual technology to show the history of the city of Ibiza, especially in the Madina Yabisa area during Muslim rule, this museum shows the islands varied past.

One of the centre’s most outstanding elements is the gallery that houses a scale model of the city’s old fortifications, accompanied by an audio-visual documentary in several languages that show the city’s history and evolution down the centuries.
