Sant Rafel de sa Creu
The name of the village comes from its strategic location at a crossroads. Its slender church stands on a promontory from which you can see a beautiful view of the walled town of Ibiza and its historic quarter (Dalt Vila).
The village is small but very busy. It is halfway between Ibiza and Sant Antoni, and it is the starting point for roads leading to other parts of the island, such as Sant Mateu, Santa Agnès or Buscastell. It is a very lively place due to the large number of restaurants located on its only street, tempting the visitor with a range of cuisine to suit all tastes. Craftsmanship is another of Sant Rafel’s highlights. Nationally and internationally renowned potters work in the village, explaining why it has been declared an “Area of Handicraft Interest”, the only one on the island.
