Archaeological Museum of Ibiza and Formentera (Dalt Vila centre) The Archaeological Museum of Ibiza has two centres, one in Dalt Vila and another at Puig des Molins. The Archaeological Museum preserves, researches and displays historic artefacts and remains found on Ibiza and Formentera, referred to as the “Pityusic Islands” by authors in antiquity, distinguishing them from the other Balearic islands of Mallorca and Menorca. The Museum is based at the top of the old part of the city, Dalt Vila, in Plaça de la Catedral, in the same square as the castle, the Bishop’s house, Casa de la Curia, the “mirador” (viewpoint) overlooking the lower part of the city (the yachting marina and the port) and the church of Santa María, consecrated as a cathedral in 1785. The Museum was set up in 1907 with a collection donated to the State by the Sociedad Arqueológica Ebusitana, an archaeologcial society that had been excavating various sites on Ibiza and Formentera since its foundation in 1903.
Most of the finds were from the necropolis sites of Puig des Molins, Sa Barda and Ses Torres, and from the Sanctuaries of S’Illa Plana and Es Cuieram.
