San Juan Bautista Things to Do
The church of San Juan (Esglesia de Sant Joan de Labritja) dates back from the 18th century. It’s a nice whitewashed church.
Nothing special to see, a bronze figure outside, simple interior but obviously the church dominates the town as the most impressive building above the houses.
The church celebrates with a big fiesta in town on 24 of June when you can see much more people around that come not only to enjoy local food and music but also the fireworks in the sky but also in the ground (!) when locals try to jump over fires, an old custom that suppose to protect the town from evil spirit and bring good luck :)Related to:

San Juan is a peaceful place, we arrived there miday and there was no one around, the sun was burning over the white houses and we didn’t know what to do. No surprise why it’s a favorite place among romantic couples that love Ibiza but not the clubs :)
First we visited the church that dominates the town, then we took some pictures of the houses, checked some wooden doors and windows (pic 5), some lovely colorful flowers on the white walls, and then seek for shelter in one of the small cafes.
A cold beer was like a gift from God at that time…
Most of the cafes are located on the main street. I was surprised to see lots of banks and ATM machines around too.
