Guillem de Montgrí statue

The Plaça d’Espanya (Square) , near the Dominican Convent of Dalt Vila offers spectacular views of the harbour , the district of Sa Penya, Botafoc and Formentera island. The statue in the center represents Guillem de Montgri, elected archbishop of Tarragona which promoted the conquest of Ibiza against the Arabs in 1235. Every August 8th this feat is commemorated and the authorities make a wreath at this figure. This is a reproduction of the sarcophagus of the tomb that is in the Cathedral of Girona.
