Statue of Marià Villangómez

Marià Villangómez (1913-2002) was one of the most important writers of literature Ibiza. Son of good family, he studied at Palma, Murcia, Barcelona and Valencia. Verse and prose writer, he taught at Sant Miquel de Balansat since 1946 where he began a prolific literary work that led him to publish in numerous magazines and newspapers.

In 1989 he received the Prize d'Honour of Catalan Letters, not only by his works but also for his translations of important works into Catalan.

There are few writers who think the current Ibiza have been greatly influenced by their publications, especially in the portraits of the landscapes and people.

Climbing to the statue

Reaching this tribute to Maria Villangómez not have much difficulty. The statue has been erected near the church of Sant Miquel, in an enviable green landscape, and where the smell of country flooded the whole place. Arrive to the village and turn left up the hill which leads to the church. The road is marked with Via Crucis along the road.
