San Rafael or Sant Rafel in Catalan, is a small, quiet village with little more than a church, a few bars and restaurants, some of them which you must try, such as Can Pilot. The majority of the village’s population live in the surrounding countryside.
This quiet population located in San Antonio Abad’s municipality, was among the first population settlements in Ibiza. It is known that BC there were settlements in San Rafael due to a bronze hatchet found in ‘sa Bassa Roja’, a farm in San Rafael.
San Rafael is an area of interest because of its artisan workshops where you can find different traditional and typical ceramic. Infact, is the place of work for some of Eivissa’s best potters, who have created new trends with pieces inspired in the Punic culture. Usually they work throughout the year.
