Punic Shrine of Es Cuieram. Sanctuary of the island

The Punic Shrine of Es Cuieram is a mystical place where the Goddess Tanit resides

The Punic Sanctuary Of Es Cuieram, for Some Is Culleram, is located a short Distance From Sant Vicent. We will find a detour on the road that connects this town with The Cala De Sant Vicent. However, as we take the deviation to the sanctuary, we find a dirt road that will delay our march. This would be inconvenient if it weren’t for visiting hours. The Punic Shrine Of Es Cuieram opens its doors only in the mornings, from ten to one noon, except on Mondays that it is closed. To this you have to add the descent to the entrance to the cave, a slope full of stairs.
