Can Marca

Welcome to Ibiza, known for its beautiful beaches and lively nightlife. What far fewer people know is that it is also home to some fascinating natural wonders. Like the Cova de Can Marçà, a cave that tells a story as old as time itself.

Journey in time: history of Cova de Can Marçà

In the north of Ibiza, near the quiet village of Sant Miguel, the Cova de Can Marçà offers a rare glimpse into the past. This cave was discovered by smugglers, who used it as a hiding place for their goods. It dates back to the Phoenician Period, making it more than 100,000 years old. As you follow the winding paths through the majestic rooms, it is like walking through the pages of a history book. Every stalactite and stalagmite tells an ancient story.
