STROLL AROUND SANT FERRAN
In a few years, Sant Ferran will have overhauled its appearance, with the pedestrianisation of the historic quarter around the square, Carrer Major and Carrer Guillem de Montgrí. What’s more, the Avimguda Joan Castelló Guasch will be given a makeover, allowing pedestrians to cross the main road that runs through the village and making it the perfect place to leisurely explore all its hidden corners.
Located in the very heart of Formentera and practically ten minutes from everywhere else on the island, the village is also famous for its bakery, where you’ll savour one of the best ‘cocas amb sofrit’ (a yummy pizza-like delight) in the whole world. What’s more, the legendary Fonda Pepe is the perfect place for a refreshing drink on a balmy summer evening, while there’s a host of exciting live music concerts held throughout the year in the village square or at Sa Panxa restaurant.
Summer nights were designed for outdoor living, which is why the Carrer Major now features an Art Market (daily from May to October, except Wednesdays and Sundays), where artists showcase their creations.
On Fridays, it’s the turn of live music, with a cycle of concerts organised by the island council and held in plazas across the island. This link will take you to a list of all the performances taking place over the summer.
In short, every day is the perfect day to visit Sant Ferran. And not just in summer, as every month of the year there’s an array of live music concerts, which you can check out on this link.
