Torre de Defensa de es Savinar
All along Ibiza's coast there are several defence towers, many of which were designed by Juan Ballester de Zafra. The Es Savinar tower is one of these, and it is perhaps one of the most spectacular because of its setting. It stands on a thin stretch of rock that rises two hundred metres out of the sea, opposite the Es Vedrá rock, in Cala d´Hort. To reach the tower, the last part of the journey has to be done on foot, and it is not an easy walk. The turning is signposted on the left-hand side of the road from San Antonio to Cala d'Hort. The walk to the restored tower along a narrow path takes about twenty minutes. At the foot of part of the slope is the beach known as Atlantis, with its disused stone quarry half-submerged in the sea.
