St Vincent and St James Church and Convent, Ibiza

St Vincent and St James Church and Convent, Ibiza

The St Vincent and St James Church and Convent is nestled in the Old Town of Ibiza. Established in 1592 as a convent church, it was not granted public church status to the San Pedro Apostol Parish until 1929. Inside the church there are several chapels that can be visited and which provide a glimpse of the “old Ibiza”.

The architecture of the church is an excellent example of the blending of Moorish and Christian influences on the island. Inside the church there is rich iconic artwork and many statues and grottoes featuring sumptuous gold leaf.

Several chapels feature impressive frescoes adorned with religious artworks. They include chapels of Madre de Dios del Rosario, Immaculate Conception and San Antonio. Each of these chapels has a distinctive style featuring architecture from the 16th to the 18th centuries.

The church is dedicated to Holy Christ of the Cemetery, and the site of the previous convent cemetery is where the Town Hall now stands. The church can be visited every day, except on Mondays.
