Formentera Guide

Formentera is the smaller island of the Pitiusic Islands group, which includes Ibiza, which belong to the larger Balearic Islands in Spain. The island lies around 6 km to the south of the island of Ibiza in the Mediterranean Sea and is roughly 20 km long. The island has an excellent reputation within Europe for its pristine beaches and for the fact that nude sunbathing is permitted on most of its beaches.

The distinctive outline of Formentera is characterised by Cap de Barbaria in the south west, the plateau of La Mola in the east, the rugged western 'Ponent' coast which includes the lovely inlet of Cala Saona and the long peninsular of Es Trocadores reaching out towards S'Espalmador and Ibiza to the north.

Although the island was initially only reached via ferry from Ibiza, tourism has increased over recent years due to ferries now travelling to the island directly from the Spanish mainland. The journey time from Ibiza to Formentera is roughly 30 minutes.

Barcelona Guide

The Spanish city of Barcelona lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast, between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos and is also bordered to the west by the Serra Collserola mountain range. The city is the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and is the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. The city's origins date back to when it was founded as a Roman city and then in the Middle Ages it became the capital of the County of Barcelona. Today, the city is a very popular tourist destination and cultural centre and is particularly well known for the architectural works of Antoni Gaudi and Lluis Domenech i Montaner, which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the National Museum of Art of Catalonia which contains a collection of Romanesque art while the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art has a collection on post 1945 Catalan and Spanish art. Also in the city the Fundació Joan Miró, Picasso Museum and Fundació Antoni Tàpies hold important collections of these world famous artists, as well as Can Framis Museum, which focuses on post 1960 Catalan Art owned by Fundació Vila Casas.

From the city's port, whose piers are located close to the city centre, ferries depart to Mallorca, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med).
