It is the tallest tower in the city, thanks to a friend, one morning I could make reallity a wish that I had a long time ago.To go up for the second time in my life to this place. The first was loooooooots years ago when I was a child.

This time I was accompanied by the attractive blonde girl. Keep in mind that the potentially dangerous blondes (and this was). While she climbed difficulty the road by car with I had the nonsense idea to tell her how to do it and suddenly I was in the driver place, driving up the car to through the narrow roads of Dalt Vila. Anyway I did it OK.

It must be said that the girl of this story never got to this place before, but I must recognize that it did in excellent company (mine), with the typical complaints of a modern girl in heels and handbag, and a little frightened by the pigeons.But I must admit she enjoyed the "adventure." One of the things we see is the status of works in the hostel in future in Dalt Vila, the "parador" the very first "Parador" in the Balearic Islands.

There are five bells. The smallest of them is called dels "quarts Xica" and dates from 1680, one of them is called Sant Sagrat even older, dating from 1565, one third is called the Santa Creu and 1,583, another is called the Santa Barbara and dates from 1630 and the last is the Sanctus Major from 1680.

The next August 5th, these bells will touch as it is the feast day of the Patron Saint of Ibiza, Our Lady of the Snows, a curious name that evokes the cold but in a very hot month.
Undoubtedly the view is more impressive than the steeple of the Cathedral. Practically is visible most of the island.

Especially beautiful is the view of Talamanca, the port and other areas of Dalt Vila, including the former Dominican convent of Ibiza town, today´s Town Hall of the City.

It is always nice to see the roughness of the roofs of the main temple of the island, with its pigeons around.

Down we can see a image of the tower clock from inside. Not a very usual point of view.
