Can Marça Caves, Ibiza, Spain

The Spanish island of Ibiza (Eivissa in the native language of Catalan) lies 79 km off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea.  The Can Marça Caves, near the city of San Miguel, are a popular tourist attraction.  Once used by smugglers to store their goods, the caves are a cool respite from the midday heat.  The guided tour of the caves ends with a staged light, and sound show at an artificial waterfall.  The approach to the caves provides an incredible view of Puerto de San Miguel and the Ibiza Wall Lizards (Podarcis pityusensis) watch the tourists as the tourists view the sights.
