The Cathedral is an architectural mix, since although originally built as a Gothic temple, only the tower retains in this style. The subsequent construction of the city's Renaissance walls endangered the stability of the Cathedral and it has since been remodeled in the Baroque style.
Its official name is the Cathedral of Santa María or Virgen de las Nieves and it has a curious history. Before the Catalan conquest in 1235, the Christian troops took the oath that they would dedicate a temple to the Virgin. After the troops entered the city on August 8, they decided to dedicate a temple to the Virgen de las Nieves due to its proximity to its name day, which was on August 5th.

Iglesia de santo Domingo Church of Santo Sunday (16th century)
Town Hall , located in an old Dominican Convent.
The former Dominican monastery has been the home of the Eivissa City Council since 1838.
This monastery was one of the last ones founded by the Dominican monks in the Balearic Islands during the 16th century. The monastery was first located in the village of Jesús, in the premises of the parish church until it was relocated to within the city walls in 1587. The following year, the premises bought by the Universitat (the regional autonomous government at the time) were handed over in a formal ceremony for the construction of the monastery, which lasted throughout the 17th century. By 1674, the cloisters were still not finished and the monks did not have comfortable rooms.
The community of monks was dissolved in 1835, the building passed into state property and became the site for the City Hall, prison and other services.
Having undergone various necessary alterations due to usage requirements, today’s building preserves only one of the monastery’s cloisters and the former refectory, which was previously used for the plenary meetings of the Council. This room has a barrel vault decorated with painted murals and is today the temporary home of the Eivissa Contemporary Art Museum.
