All Ibiza facts at a glance

The genesis of the island of Ibiza - Morphological:

Ibiza arose at the end of the Tertiary era, the period at the beginning of the third era of life between the Cretaceous and Quaternary, which lasted from 65 to 1.8 million years ago, and which is divided into five periods: Paleocene (65 to 55 million years ago), Eocene (55 to 34 million years ago), Oligocene (38 to 25 million years ago), Miocene (25 to 5 million years ago) and Pliocene (5 to 1.8 million years ago). The Tertiary was mainly characterized by the rapid movement of continents, which entailed clashes, resulting in the formation of mountains.
Also colder and warmer phases alternated each other constantly, and great changes in animal life occurred and man originated.

It is in this period that the Atlantic was still widened and Africa moved slowly in a north-easterly direction, so that southern Europe was crushed and the Alps and Pyrenees were formed. In the south and east of the Iberian Peninsula the Baetic Cordillera (Sistema Betico) arose, one of the main systems of mountain ranges in Spain of which the Balearic archipelago is considered an offshoot.

The island of Ibiza, originated some 8 million years ago, when at the end of the Tertiary period, the water level fell again and the tops of the foothills of the Spanish mountain range, the Cordillera Béticas, protruded above water

Initially, the Balearic Islands were still 'connected' to the Spanish mainland, but by re-rising sea levels, the Balearic archipelago originated about 12,000 years ago.
Simply put, the Balearics consist of mountain summits protruding above water.

This westernmost archipelago of the Balearic Islands, the Pityusic Islands, shares with a continental shelf, as well as the Balearic Islands themselves.
Ibiza is the westernmost of the Balearic Islands, it has a hilly surface, and human habitation dates back to at least 5000 BC.

Ibiza island | Historical

Ibiza island - Historical

Ibiza, how it all began

They were Phoenicians in 654 BC, who founded a port in the Balearic Islands, by the name of 'Ibossim' (dedicated to Bes, one ancient Egyptian deity, first worshiped as protector of households, mothers, children and birth and later as defender of all that is good and enemy of all bad), later known to the Romans as "Ebusus" and to the Ethiopians as "Yebisah" and now widely known as Ibiza.
The name Pityusen, for Ibiza and Formentera, comes from the Greek, which called the two islands 'Pityűssai' called, Greek for "pine-covered islands".

The cave of Es Cuieram contains a sanctuary where in those days sacrifices were offered to Tanit, a Punic and Phoenician goddess, and main deity of Roman Carthage, beside her husband supreme god Ba`al Hammon.

The Phoenicians build cemeteries on the island for their dead and at Ses Salinas, the salt production was realized, Ibiza's former main commercial product, the white gold, or salt, together with the production of garum (fish sauce), wool and an important dye for those days, Ibiza quickly grew into an important trading post for ships on the Mediterranean.
With the invasion of Assyrian troops the Phoenician domination crashed and Ibiza came under the rule of Carthage, formerly a colony of Phoenicia, and the island  fortified its Balearic market position even further, by supplying mercenaries to Carthage, the widely acclaimed effective, Balearic stone slingers.
The island preserved excellent examples of this late Carthaginian-Punic civilization in its territory.

Later in history of Ibiza was dominated successively by the Romans, Visigoths and Muslims.
After domination consecutively by the Romans (which terminated Ibiza's important position in the Mediterranean), the Vandals and Byzantines, the island was conquered by the Moors in 990, and the last remaining islanders converted to the Islam.
The Muslims left an important and recognizable imprint on the distinctive architecture and the traditional costumes of the island, but were driven out during the Christian reconquest  in the 13th century where the islands became Catalan colonies and lost their importance for the region.

In 1110 Ibiza was invaded by the Norwegians, on crusade to Jerusalem, in an attempt to undermine the Islam, and in 1235 the then king of Aragon ended the Moorish domination, deported the last Muslims, and brought the island back under Christian rule.

In the 16th century, Ibiza was frequently attacked by pirates and because Spain did not act against that at the time, the islanders in return took control by scouring the waters themselves as pirates to protect the islanders against attacks by other pirates in this way. 

Until 1715 Ibiza had its own administrative law, which was terminated by King Philip V of Spain's abolition of the autonomy of local government.
For most of the 18th century, Ibiza was, under the control of the Spanish Bourbon monarchy.

It was only in 1976, with the death of Franco when the Franco dictatorship in Spain turned back in a parliamentary democracy, the Statute of Autonomy of the Balearic Islands was   established.

World Heritage

Throughout the island of Ibiza you can find, the mostly, well-preserved archaeological remains of various civilizations that inhabited the island.
Because of its biological diversity and culture, large parts of the island of Ibiza, were declared culture and natural heritage site by UNESCO on December 14th, 1999, and are now protected in national parks and marine reserves.
Such as the fortified upper town Dalt Vila as a prime example of the military Renaissance architecture, the first Phoenician settlement in Sa Caleta and the necropolis at Puig des Molins, the oldest (Moorish or Phoenician?) settlement in Balafia, the Moorish irrigation system in Ses Feixes, and the Posidonia Oceanica, an important native seagrass species that is only found in the Ses Salinas Nature Park, located in the strait between the salt fields of Ibiza and Formentera.
Some of the once 180 windmills in Ibiza, have been restored, and that also goes for the defense and watchtowers that were part of Ibiza's effective defense system against pirates and enemy raids.
The charming white churches of the island have been restored to their former glory and form a stunning backdrop for wedding photos, video or film and are a nice destination for a day of touring.
The once life-providing water springs and wells were built under Arab and Roman architecture, but still today have a traditional meaning for the locals, who gather there at special occasions and celebrations, to dance their traditonal 'Ball Pagés', the folk dance of Ibiza.

Ibiza, the island | Flora and Fauna

Ibiza, the island - Flora & Fauna

Ibiza's Flora

Ibiza, situated in the Mediterranean sea, has incomparable natural beauty with an impressive, jagged coastline of rocky coves and bays interspersed with attractive beaches.
Beaches come in all colors and shapes, but the sea water is always clear and of beautiful azure color and pleasant temperatures, until far in October.
Inland you'll find rolling green hills and valleys with picturesque white villages surrounded by fragrant almond, carob-, olive, lemon and orange groves and although the island is very dry in summer, the soil always remains very fruitful and many kinds of herbs and grasses start growing, after each rainfall.
Ibiza is home to some colorful endemic plant species found only on this island (and Formentera), such as specific orchid species, the unique hyacinth Scilla numidica, carnation species Silene cambessedesii and a special medicinal plant Thapsia Garganica.

Ibiza's Fauna

Is divided in Marine fauna with areas of greatest diversity found along Ibiza's coasts, Fauna in continental waters such as Ses Salinas and ses Feixes, Land fauna found in humid areas, forest ecosystems and areas with traditional agriculture and Underground fauna, found in coves that are very particular to the island, where very rare endemic species have been discovered.
One of Ibiza's most important sea ecosystems, declared 'World Heritage' in 1999,  is the Posidonia Oceanica, a 30,000 year old eelgrass that slows global warming (scientifically proven!), by transforming carbon dioxide into oxygen. Although protected in the Natural Park of Ses Salinas (Parque Natural de Ses Salines Ses Salines), the Posidonia still today suffers harm caused by irresponsible boat use. Fortunately, in 2016, María José Estarellas founded a volunteer group by concerned local citizens, running extra patrols in summer to raise awareness, and alert captains responsible for mooring, to use the eco-buoys in the correct way, and not to destroy or damage the Posidonia fields.
Protected in the Cala d'Hort Nature Reserve (Reserva Natural de Cala d'Hort) life endangered native marine species such as the loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) and the dolphin species, Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus).
The vital marine reserves of Ibiza are a safe haven for many birds, including flamingos and the endangered Audouin's gull, and Peregrine- and Eleonorae's falcon species.

The island knows a number of endemic species such as the Mediterranean house gecko Hemidactylus or turcicus, frogs, turtles, hedgehogs, rabbits, bats and wild genet cats and moreover knows its own type of hunting dog, the Podenco.

There are no "dangerous" animals on the island, such as poisonous snakes, lizards and spiders.
Starting from the mid-80s, Ibiza maintains a log of 'serpents incidents' and although since 2003 three species of snakes were found  regularly in Ibiza, once 'accidentally' imported in pots of olive trees by garden centres, there is no cause for alarm.
These are non-toxic species, such as the Horseshoe snake (Hemorrhois Hippocrepis), the Rat or Ladder Snake (Rhinechis scalaris) and the light-toxic, but unsociable snake lizard (Malpolon monspessulanus), appearing frequently on the Spanish mainland and prefers to evade people.

Due to the isolated location, the Pityusen lizards or Ibiza wall lizard developed its own species, Podarcis pityusensis, with a length of 7 cm, reddish-brown flanks and a beige or tan to brown back.
In Formentera lives a variant Podarcis pityusensis formenterae, with a white or green base color and thin rows of spots of dark brown to black on the back and flanks and in mating season in particular the color of the males changes to jade-green and orange on the belly and throat. Also by the isolated location, in rock island Es Vedra an entirely unique lizard species developed, Podarcis pityusensis vedranellensis, with deep blue flanks and a yellow back.
