Sant Ciriac Chapel, Ibiza
Following the construction of the chapel in 1754 it was dedicated to the town’s patron saint, Ciriac. Sant Ciriac has been the patron saint of Ibiza since 1650, and his feast day falls on August 8th - the same day that the Catalans felled the Moorish. The tunnel entrance to the chapel emulates the arrival of the Catalan Christian conquistadors. The little barred chapel features a roughly hewn arch under the statue of Sant Ciriac, where it is said that the invaders passed. Throwing a coin through the arch is said to bring you good luck. The chapel itself is small, but its historical significance makes it an important site to visit on Ibiza.
