Until the end of October, you can visit this beautiful cave located in Cala San Vicente for free.
The Consell de Eivissa opens the doors of various monuments and areas of high heritage value on the island of Ibiza. Specifically, it is the Sa Sal Rossa tower, the Puig d'en Valls and Es Culleram cave. The latter is very close to Can Coves and is a perfect opportunity to visit it.
In this natural cave of calcareous rock, religious rites of the Punic period were celebrated dedicated to the goddess Tanit. It is located on the Can Quintals estate, a few kilometres from the Sant Vicent cove, at an altitude of around 50 metres.

It was discovered by chance in 1907. Later, the Ebusitan Archaeological Society organised a major excavation campaign in Es Culleram, with many different terracotta figures (some 600 complete and more than a thousand heads of others) being discovered, as well as other materials such as a bone or ivory lion.
Its historical value is incalculable, since the Punic remains date from the 4th and 2nd centuries BC. Among the most important remains are the bronze plaque with inscriptions on both sides to Resph-Melkart and the divinity Tanit. The Culleram cave was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest (BIC) by the Autonomous Community of the Balearic Islands. It has been the property of the Consell Insular d'Eivissa since 1997.
