Stop 7: Windmill of Puig d’en Valls

The furthest stop from Es Canar will introduce you to the only flour windmill in Ibiza that still has all its machinery.

Stop 8: Pou de Gatzara

Wells have always been a key architectural element on the island. They stand out for their architectural and ethnographic singularity, as peasants have been organising the ballades around the wells for centuries. These festive gatherings were to celebrate the end of the harvest or other important dates on the country calendar. This particular well, or pou, stands in the geographic centre of Ibiza and dates back to the 17th century or even earlier.

Stop 9: Church of Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera

In the village of Santa Gertrudis, visitors will not only see this beautiful and simple church from late 18th century, they will also find boutiques, pleasant cafes and restaurants.

In the valley of Atzaró you will find a fountain bearing the same name. It is part of an interesting heritage site that includes a water tank, washhouse, irrigation ditch and the ruins of an oil press.

Stop 11: Canal d’en Martí

In this small natural harbour, you will learn how the Romans obtained the purple dye that was so coveted by the upper classes in those times.

Stop 12: Es Pou des Lleó

Only a few meters on from the previous stop, we run into this sea-facing well that dates as far back as the 17th century or even earlier. If you download the pdf brochure from the website, you’ll learn the curious legend that surrounds this well.
