Monastery of Sant Cristofol. In the heart of Vila

The Monastery of San Cristófol is a lovely place on the rise to the Cathedral

Climbing towards the Cathedral Square we find the monastery Of Sant Cristòfol, also known As the convent Of ses monges Tancades. It Is A building of historical value that was originally a collection of 16TH century houses converted into a convent for the Augustinian nuns. Both the church and the convent itself were destroyed during the Civil War, so it had to be rebuilt and then reformed following the layout of the original building

The Convent of the nuns

It Is a simple building with no relevant decoration and today it maintains a congregation of cloistered nuns. Although The visit will be short and visually only highlights the altar that you can see behind the glass, there is a second door that is worth visiting, especially to replenish strength. The nuns make pasta that they put on sale for a euro like the Coca pepper, empanadas, Orelletes, Rubiols, Coca sweet and for five euros we can take the pasta of San Agustín.
Monasterio San Cristofol

Cult of History

During The 14TH century, it was extended with the construction of the belfry and the chapels of San Jaume, Sant Miquel, Santa Tecla and Sant Antoni, Sant Joan and San Pedro and San Pablo. The rest of the chapels correspond to the 16TH century, as well as the main entrance door. Already in 1817, it becomes the Cathedral Of Ibiza, Taking Possession Felipe Gonzalez Abarca, although the first Bishop Was Manuel Abad and sierra in 1782, but the state of ruin of the church did not allow to consecrate it until a century later. The main entrance to the building is located in the square. We Can observe an old hourglass in the belfry and an image of the Madonna on the access door. At the top are visible the walls that divide the main nave into chapels. Most visitors stay with this view of the building, however, we recommend that you surround the belfry, first by the views you will find, and second because they can see perfectly the stained glass windows that give light to the altar and give a very different picture of the temple. A perfect place to see this area is just outside the Archeological Museum. The interior of the building may cost you something more to see, because even though your official schedule of visits begins at Ten in the morning, the doors do not open a few days and others either. We recommend You to make your visit on Sundays.
