It exists in Es Cubells (Sant Josep) arnisca an old stone quarry at the foot of the magic tower des Savinar. This is Atlantis, a former sandstone quarry that time, hippies and one legends have become a mythical place. Its official name is Sa Pedrera, because here a lot of stone was extracted to build the majestic walls of Dalt Vila, which are transported by sea to the capital and to Sant Antoni. The site is a breakwater on the sea carved rocks, steps and folds by which the water of the Mediterranean forming natural pools, making an eerie place Atlantis filtered.
In fact, there are small altars and carved figures, Buddhas and gods of Hindu cosmology painted on the walls. Hippies named the place as Atlantis, and it was they who settled in the small cave where ancient stonemasons took refuge when it rained. In the sixties, hippie communities in the area began a peaceful lifestyle riddled with 'extrasensory' experiences should be accompanied, naturally, by a magical natural landscape. Atlantis met the requirements: on the rocks geometric shapes, natural pools and artistic footprint Atlantis walls have become an essential place of Ibiza. In fact, even today there are some people who still whittling down the cliff and figures in the malleable marès (sandstone) of Atlantis, keeping alive the magic of the place.
