When we talk about Ibiza, we immediately evoke the spirit that made it the destination par excellence of the "hippies".
Fleeing from the political situation of their different countries of origin and attracted by the ideological and cultural diversity and the desire for freedom, the landscapes, climate and energy of the island of Ibiza and Formentera were the ideal setting to welcome this movement and philosophy of life.
This quiet island offered them on their arrival, back in the 50s and 60s, a place where they felt free, they could live as they wanted, in community or in cottages in the interior of the island and they integrated very well with the local population.
Although the spirit is not the same as in its origins, its influence has continued and is still alive throughout all these years: a bohemian lifestyle, its respect and even mimicry with nature, its nonconformist spirit and its form of artistic expression gave rise to a real cultural and social movement: the famous drums of Benirràs or the hippie markets, are still today, a tourist attraction.
