Sant Carles de Peralta (Spanish: San Carlos) is a village in the north east[1] of Ibiza (Catalan: Eivissa), Spain.[2] The village is in the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu and is located on the designated road PM 810.[1] The village is 21.6 miles (34.8 km) North East of Ibiza Town and 28.3 miles (45.5 km) of Ibiza Airport. 5.0 kilometres (3.1 mi) to the South east of the village is the coastal resort of Es Canar.[3]

Locations[edit]

To the south of the village are chimneys and ruined buildings, the remains of lead mines first exploited by the Carthaginians. The church is worth a visit with an elegant arcaded entrance.[4] Next to it is the famous and historic Bar Anita, the original gathering place for hippies in the '60 of the last century.
