Church of Sant Mateu Ibiza

In the eighteenth century, the bishop Abad y la Sierra began to build churches on the island points strategically chosen so that parishioners minimize their movement, favoring the popular fervor. San Mateo was in an area of ​​little strategic interest, both military and commercial. The rugged mountains naturally protected from access from the sea. The distance from major urban centers, for the time, also posed a problem for its people. However, San Mateo had a value that endures. Its valleys are very fertile land. Now intended to produce wine mainly, their estates were divided along its length and width. Given these characteristics, the church of Sant Mateu is built on a small hill situated in the center of this community.
