A journey through time: ibiza’s maritime history

The maritime history of Ibiza dates back to ancient times when the island was a significant commercial and strategic center in the Mediterranean. Since then, it has witnessed countless historical events, including Phoenician and Roman invasions, and naval battles during the Middle Ages. The remains of ancient ports, lighthouses, and fortresses can still be found on the island, reminding us of its rich heritage and cultural impact.

Historical points of interest at sea

Exploring Ibiza from the sea not only allows you to immerse yourself in its crystal-clear waters and stunning landscapes but also discover the remnants of its rich history. Along the island’s coastline lie a treasure trove of historical sites that tell fascinating stories of the past. Embark on a unique journey with us to explore these iconic historical sites at sea.

Dalt Vila

One of Ibiza’s historical gems is Dalt Vila, a majestic walled citadel perched on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Built by the Phoenicians in the 7th century BC, this medieval fortress has witnessed countless battles and has stood the test of time. Sailing past its imposing walls, you’ll immerse yourself in centuries of history and envision the ancient vessels approaching the coast in search of refuge.

The Castle of Ibiza

At the highest point of Dalt Vila stands the imposing Castle of Ibiza, a fortress that has protected the island for over a thousand years. Built in the 12th century by the Muslims and later expanded by the Christians, this castle offers breathtaking panoramic views of the sea and the city of Ibiza. Sailing near its imposing walls will transport you to an era of corsairs and conquerors, while marveling at its impressive architecture.

Historic shipwrecks and underwater relics

Beneath the tranquil waters surrounding Ibiza lie numerous shipwrecks that tell stories of bygone eras. One of the most famous is the wreck of the Sa Nitja, a warship that sank in the 18th century during a naval battle. Today, its remains lie on the seabed, attracting adventurous divers in search of underwater adventures and a glimpse into the island’s maritime history.

Historic lighthouses

Along the coast of Ibiza, stand majestic lighthouses that have served as beacons for sailors for centuries. These historic lighthouses, such as the Botafoc Lighthouse and the Punta Grossa Lighthouse, are silent witnesses to the passage of time and offer a unique spectacle at sunset when their lights come on to illuminate the sailors’ path.
