Ibiza Towns and Villages: San Agustin

The tiny hillside village of San Agustin consists of a few whitewashed buildings clustered round the simple, but imposing, church. Mainstay of the hamlet, there's been a religious structure on this site since the 1400's but the present church was constructed around 200 years ago.

Villagers don't have far to walk if they fancy popping out for something to eat and drink with the restaurant Can Berri Vell, the Bar Can Berri and cafe/bar/gallery Can Curt all within touching distance of each other. Other vices are well served by the small supermarket/post office/tobacconist just down from the church.

Visitors by car will find plenty of parking space on the car park behind the church, whilst the number 8 Bus from San Antonio to Ibiza via San Jose serves the village all year.

Oddly enough San Agustin day falls in August, the 28th to be precise, when the village is packed to the rafters with revellers watching live music and entertainment (usually for several days before and after) in the council's Fiesta programme.
