Come and join the Fiestas of Es Canar

Next 10th June, Es Canar will be celebrating the fiestas of Saint Christopher, who is the patron saint of this town. If you’re staying at Hotel Ánfora on this date, don’t miss the celebrations on such a special day and come and join our traditions. It’s really easy because all the events planned are only a 5-minute walk from the hotel.

The festivities in Es Canar, Ibiza

In the old days, when Es Canar was only a small fishing village, the neighbours of Es Canar and its surrounding area would celebrate Sant Cristòfol (Saint Christopher) with a simple mass in the chapel and then they would gather to eat paella in the pine grove near the beach. Nowadays, the celebrations have extended and the events start a few days before 10th July, the most important day in the fiestas of Es Canar.

Our recommendations for 10th July, the most important day in the Fiestas of Es Canar

If you’ll be in Ibiza on 10th July, we suggest you stay in Es Canar and enjoy the festivities of San Cristòfol. During the day you’ll be able to combine a fabulous day at the beach with different events that will introduce you to the regional food, crafts and folk dances of Ibiza. Don’t want to miss a thing?
