Phoenician Village of Sa Caleta. The first village on the island

The first known human settlement is located in the Phoenician Village of Sa Caleta

According To Archaeologists, the Phoenician village Of Sa Caleta was the origin of The current Ibiza. Its archaeological remains are located on a small peninsula to the south of the island, next to the beach also known as Sa Caleta. However, its access is somewhat convoluted if we do not know its exact position. To get to the first slum of Ibiza, take the road that departs from the airport to Sant Josep. A few meters away, a sign indicating the detour to Cala Jondal will allow us To travel the coast visiting the south ends of the beach Of Es cogreenback. Something later, we found the deviation to the beach Of Sa Caleta. We’ll Have to cross a forked dirt road. If we take the road to the left, we will arrive to a nice fishing cove where to leave the car and continue walking. If we take the road to the right, access to the parking of the beach itself, and from here, to a path to access the Phoenician village.

Birth of Ibiza

the date of creation of this Phoenician settlement dates back to the eighth centuryBC. The official version guarantees a human settlement with salt as first claims. In fact, this small neighborhood of almost four hundred square meters is located a few steps away from the salt mill, although far enough to avoid the onslaught of mosquitoes. During The seventh century BC, this mini city reaches its peak, becoming an important economic center. Between the years 600 and five hundred ninety, according to Reza in the official annotations, the Phoenicians decide to leave the Phoenician village Of Sa Caleta to move to the Bay Of Ibiza, giving place to the city that nowadays we know.
