Barrio de Sa Penya is located between the ramparts and the port, next to Barrio de la Marina, the two sailor neighborhoods combine excellence of the city and the liveliest and colorful places of the island. Barrio is also included in the declared World Heritage area.
What to do in Sa Penya Quarter ?
You will be surprised with its dead ends, steep alleys and stairs carved into the rock itself, its sets of narrow, winding streets among we highlightCalle “Carrer de la Mare de Deu” which is the main artery of the neighborhood and is a spectacle in itself; a street where people from around the world gather to have fun, a street full of bars, restaurants and shops on every corner. It is also known for being the center of gay tourism on the island, with many bars and discos open until the wee hours of the morning. Barrio de Sa Penya is awake until the wee hours of the morning, where you can drink, dance, eat, buy something or get yourself a tattoo.
We also found a museum in the neighborhood, in the upper part of the city, called Casa-Museo Broner,which is the former home of the rationalist architect Erwin Broner where part of his work and from other artists is displayed. Erwin Broner fled from the German Nazis and took refuge on the island where he had a very important role in the development of rationalist architecture on the island.A good example is his own home, a home of the 1950s, very modest, bright, where with a perfect distribution, every space in it is used very rationally.
This is a place where you can eat well and it is not very expensive. We recommend spending an afternoon strolling through Barrio de Sa Penya and finish at the Port of Ibiza, it sure is an unforgettable experience.
