IBIZA CATHEDRAL

Spain

Ibiza Cathedral, Spain

Ibiza is not a place renowned for its cultural monuments. However, the Cathedral in Ibiza Old Town dates to 1235 when invading Catalan troops promised to build a temple if they conquered the island. This they did and work began on a Gothic-style Cathedral soon afterwards.

Much of what remains today is from the 14th Century, the tower being particularly fine and distinctively Catalan.

All was restyled in the Baroque manner in the 18th Century.
