One of the Secrets of the island is the small town of Sant Carles, a town with character. In summer is a cross of roads leading to the best beaches at the eastside of the island. Located just four miles north of the capital of the county (Santa Eulalia) council to which it belongs. As the small white villages of the island its center is the church and in this case we find one of the most beautiful white churches of the island. The church porch is one of the most beautiful and includes a well whitewashed at the entry area.

The church interior is marked under Ibicencan styles. White not only outside but inside, although in this case after the war and destruction of all their altars, part of the population were recycled timbers and built small but beautiful little altars in each chapels, making in this church something remarkable compared to the other but simply that characterizes religious temples on the island.

On the main altar the image of Saint Charles Borromeo, Milan Bishop stands majestically in a completely white background. Facing it many couples, some very famous who have chosen this sober setting to swear eternal love, even in some celebrations German´s punk singer Nina Hagen has dared to sing a religious piece

Beside its white church, at parish hall has served as a stage for classical music and piano, having been born here a strong tradition that has become an international event that has even come to be a spectator of such an event, the sister of the Queen of Spain

But if there is anything that characterizes the people is its bar, which, like his church have been the subject of films & T.V. serials that were set in the sixties.

A bar with great hearth, which holds an annual photo contest has become one of the most famous of the island. The bar retains the air of those sixties / seventies and where you can take herbs typical Ibizan made entirely by hand.

This site is the meeting point of the village. In the picture above the mailboxes are still in use, this bar where in addition to exercising the functions of makeshift post office.
