Ibiza´s Churches I

There is a typical white Church in each Town built by talented sculptors and designed by architects using simple yet incredibly beautiful shapes, playing with the architectural forms of the chapels, naves, bell towers, walls and portcullises. Due to its rather exposed geographical situation, Ibiza was vulnerable to pirate attacks for this reason Churches were built not only for religious purposes but also as places of defense. Church buildings have in architectonic and cultural terms a great importance, not just because of their age but also because they are home to various works of huge cultural wealth such as altarpieces.
