Numerous almonds, carob and olive trees, among fruit trees and various crops scattered throughout the rural area of the island, reveal the millenary agricultural tradition of Ibiza population, which until recently, was dependent on agriculture.
In a distant past, Ibiza exported almonds, figs, charcoal and potatoes to the peninsula and to European countries. In spite of this, in the past there was a fundamental product, salt.
For this reason it was called the salt island, since it was one of the most important saline centers of the Mediterranean. The economy of Ibiza in the XXI century is oriented mainly towards the development of tourism sector, industry that began in the early thirties when the first hotel was built on the island.
The Spanish Civil War years interrupted this process and it was not until the end of the decade of the Fifties that the tourist economy of the island began to grow again until becoming, directly or indirectly, in the modus vivendi of the island.
Currently, the island has a population of 100,000 inhabitants and receives each year the visit of more than three million tourists from all over the world. After the Catalan conquest in 1235, the island was divided into five sectors and was in 1833 when happened the creation of the different municipalities: Ibiza, Sant Antoni de Portmany, Santa Eularia des Riu, Sant Josep de sa Talaja and Sant Joan de Labritja. Of these five municipalities, Ibiza, San Antonio and Santa Eulalia are the only ones that have settlements with the category of small town.
