  7. 8. Fortress of Nuestra Señora de las Nieves From the ramparts of the fortress is a wonderful view over the city, especially if it goes up to the Cathedral square, which is dedicated to Nuestra Señora de las Nieves, patron saint of Ibiza (¡although rarely in Ibiza snow!). Below the glittering red-tile domes of the church of Santo Domingo (XVI century) and more to the left is the main square of the city, Vara de Rey. In the middle there is a statue dedicated to General Ibizan the same name who fought in the war in Cuba. In the Cathedral Square is the Archaeological Museum of Ibiza, with many important remnants of the era in which Carthage dominated the Mediterranean.

  8. 9. San Francisco The church and the convent of San Francisco are testimonies of our artistic history during the colonial period. The architecture of the XVI and XVII show items that have remained in traditional Chilean architecture, such as the roofs covered with tiles, corridors and courtyards.
