San José has history. Visitors feel it the minute they enter this lively village. They need go no further than the traditional, picturesque bar Bernat Vinya, located on the village’s main street and opposite the whitewashed 18th century village church. Over the past 150 years, countless card games have been won or lost here, and the ambience inside the bar has retained its traditional charm to this day.
The rest of the village offers a range of amenities. Over the years it has grown larger and, thanks to the many international residents who have settled in and around San José, a multicultural vibe has flourished. Add to that great beaches such as Cala Jondal and exciting cultural attractions just a few kilometres away. If, for example, you want to visit a UNESCO World Heritage site, you should make a detour to the Sa Caleta bay to see the remains of a Phoenician settlement from the 7th century B.C.
The rocky, red landscapes and the ruins and tunnels of a former military installation create a bizarre panorama. The tiny harbour located directly below the archaeological site also has plenty of character thanks to its countless boathouses from yesteryear. Sleepy cats stretch out in the shade of typical Ibizan fishing boats, sailboats drop anchor in front of the bay, a light breeze blows in from the sea – history is within your grasp.
