Without a doubt the epicentre of Ibiza, the place to meet up and hang out on the island. Vara Del rey owes its name to Joaquín Vara de Rey y Rubio, born in Ibiza in 1840. He was a Spanish soldier and politician and a hero in the Cuban War thanks to his defence of the fort at El Viso.

Paseo de Vara del Rey, also popularly known as S’Alamera, is a central walk of about 300m long surrounded by beautiful colonial buildings, featuring a large number of shops, bars, terraces and restaurants. In Paseo de Vara de Rey we find everything from big brandclothing stores, small and charming classic shops like barber shops, bakeries, groceries or perfumeries. But one of the things that attracts our attention is the architecture of its colonial buildings like the Tourist Office of the city.

Interesting examples of colonial architecture can be found on this street that constitutes the epicentre of the city and borders the neighbourhood of La Marina. It was, at the end of the XIX century, the starting point for the expansion of the city. Its wide dimensions turn it into a place that has been used again and again to host cultural activities, handcraft fairs and popular events.
