Ibiza is a city and municipality located on the southeast coast of the island of Ibiza in the Balearic Islands autonomous community. Although called Ibiza in Spanish, its official Catalan name is Eivissa (as restored in 1986) and its inhabitants call it Vila d'Eivissa or simply Vila. It's divided into two main parts: the old town, called D'Alt Vila (literally "Upper Town"), located in the little mountain by the sea, and the modern part, called Eixample. On top of Dalt Vila there's the cathedral of Santa Maria d'Eivissa (14th century). There's also the punic necropolis of Puig des Molins.

The city, which has a population of 44,114 (2007), is the capital and most populous settlement of the island and of the Illes Pitiüses group (which includes Ibiza and Formentera).

It is widely known for its extravagant nightlife. Two of the island's most luxurious nightclubs, Pacha and El Divino, are located in Ibiza Town itself whereas Space is located just south of the town, near the airport.
