History of Eivissa and Formentera

“Història d'Eivissa i Formentera” unpacks the story of the Pityusic islands—les Pitiüses—from the arrival of Phoenicians in 654 BC to 1983, when the Balearic Islands' “Statute of Autonomy” took effect. Escandell and Ferrer narrate some of Formentera and Eivissa's the most defining moments in nearly two and a half millennia of history.

Madrid publishing house Apache Libros offers “Història d'Eivissa i Formentera” as a large-size, hardcover, 64-page deluxe edition.
