New Church in Town

The new church of San Pablo was inaugurated last week by the Archbishop of Ibiza

The new church of San Pablo was inaugurated last week by the Archbishop of Ibiza. Situated in the district of Can Escandell/Casas Baratas (the area inland of Ibiza's landmark McDonald's Roundabout) the construction of the new church was made possible by the donation of the land by the Escandell family 40 years ago.

Since then parishioners have been busy raising enough money to put a building on the site, and what a building it is. Though it may be described as unusual when compared to traditional churches, it has, for example, eight sides, the architects claim that all their ideas were in use in early Christian churches when the number 8 represented the resurrection of Christ.

By all accounts, the church's special design and decoration make it well worth visiting, so why not put it on your itinerary on your next trip to Ibiza?
