Cathedral Square

Ever since the founding of the city, this has probably been the site that has always contained its most important religious building. Since the Catalan conquest in 1235, this building is the cathedral. Before the conquest, the Catalan feudal lords (Guillem de Montgrí, Pere de Portugal and Nunyo Sanç) pledged to erect a church devoted to the Virgin Mary. The early church dating from the 14th century was Gothic in style, and the only remains of this origin are the apse and the tower. The church underwent a reform in 1712 that gave it its current appearance. In 1782, a bishopric was created in Ibiza through a papal bull issued by Pope Pius VI, and the church became the Cathedral of Ibiza. This square is also the home to the Archaeological Museum, precisely in the building that used to house the University, the representative body of the people of Ibiza for 500 years.
