The city of Ibiza celebrates on Wednesday, December 4, the 20th birthday of its declaration as World Heritage by UNESCO with a complete program of activities that will take place throughout the day.
On December 4, 1999, UNESCO registered the category “Ibiza, Biodiversity and Culture” within the World Heritage set. Thus, with one of the few mixed declarations, the city became part of this exclusive world group of which Spain is the third member with the greatest amount of goods. UNESCO declared World Heritage the Renaissance walls of Dalt Vila, the meadows of oceanic posidonia, the Phoenician site of sa Caleta and the Punic Necropolis of Puig des Molins, the latter vestiges of the first settlements of the islands.
