The city of Ibiza was built on the outskirts of its original city, Dalt Vila, behind whose walls is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Spain. We will run through its high walls (get ready to climb some steeps) to enjoy the spectacular views they offer us, something like seeing Paris from the Eiffel Tower ;-). Inside the fortress we will run through the labyrinth of narrow streets that will take us to the cathedral of Ibiza and its viewpoint.
Outside the fortress, there is the Marina neighbourhood, a former fishermen’s quarter that is currently the center of the most “chic and trendy” shops, souvenirs and restaurants for all tastes.
Next to this neighbourhood there is the area of “Sa Penya”, narrow streets and whitewashed houses in a Mediterranean style that concentrates the famous gay leisure area in the “Calle de la Virgen” and the deteriorated drug neighbourhood, where we recommend to run in a little faster pace 😉 (if someone does not want to take a risk, we can avoid this area).
The Marina neighbourhood reaches the old port, which offers a characteristic image of the city, with its disorderly houses and numerous restaurants and pubs that extend their tables on their terraces overlooking the sea and the anchored boats.
Getting back to the start point we will run along the main avenue of the new city where a great commercial activity takes place next to several tapas bars.
