For decades Ibiza has been attracting artists and creative people around the world, many of them have made the island their home. But what are the unseen roots that fuel their unlimited creativity and why Ibiza is known as an Island of Love and Freedom?
Ibiza has always been under the domination of many different cultures. Its long history of different influences have brought the ibicencos into developing a sense of acceptance and tolerance towards others. “Tranquilo”, one of the most famous word in Ibicenco, means “finding inner peace in harmony with nature”. It´s easy to feel an attraction by this Ibicenco way of life, to find inspiration and gratification from the natural beauty and the simple, spiritually enriching way of life.
