It's time for the Ibiza Medieval Fair once again, an entertaining cultural event that attracts over 100,000 visitors every year over three days of festivities. The streets of Dalt Vila become a great open-air theatre filled with minstrels, artists, bird handlers, artisans, silversmiths, spice traders, dancers and chocolate makers, turning this part of town into a thrilling spectacle and a mass of colours, smells and flavours.
The extraordinarily beautiful city walls and the fortified part of the city are considered by UNESCO to be the most well-preserved acropolis in the entire Mediterranean. Its impressive gateways and battlements welcome visitors and are turned into the setting for concerts, plays and a wide programme of events taking place from morning to night all through the weekend.
Walking round Dalt Vila during the Medieval Fair takes you on a journey into the past and reminds you that Ibiza has always known how to absorb the legacy left behind by many different cultures, while keeping its own deeply-rooted customs and traditions very much alive. The Medieval Fair is a date with the island's history.
