The Spanish royal family are on their annual summer holiday in Mallorca, however this year, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia will spend their vacation attending various institutional events to support the social and economic recovery of the Balearic Islands following the COVID-19 lockdown.
To conclude their tour of the Balearic Islands, on Monday Their Majesties visited Ibiza.
Upon arrival in the capital, The King and Queen went on a guided tour of the Puig des Molins - a small hill located on the south-west side of the bay of Ibiza. It gets its name from the windmills ('molins' in Catalan) which have stood on the top of the hill since at least the 14th century.
The site is the best-preserved necropolis in the Mediterranean. It also contains a medieval Islamic rural property, and an archaeological museum.
Afterwards, Their Majesties moved to Sant Antoni de Portmany and began a tour of the historic centre of the town. The King and Queen strolled along the promenade and passed by 'The Egg' monument, a tribute to the discovery of America. The route included stalls selling local crafts and a visit to the Iglesia de San Antonio where they saw a performance of local folklore.
The Royal Couple continued through the Ancha and del Progreso streets and onto the Paseo de la Mar where they received greetings from the members of the Sant Antoni municipal corporation and members of other municipalities of the island. At the dock, Their Majesties held a meeting with the heads of the Fishermen's Guild.
