Ca n’Anneta, also known as the Bar Anita
located in San Carlos, Ibiza.
Bar Anita’s shot to popularity during the 60s, with the arrival of hippies, who settled mainly in the Sant Carlos area and the hippies took Bar Anita as their main meeting place as it was not only a social meeting point, a bar with food/tapas it also (as today) functioned as a post office and it had the only telephone in the village.
Ibicencos and travellers drive to Sant Carles to eat lovely tapas, and to sip a glass of their famous delicious herbal liqueur.The family has been producing the herbal liqueur for a century following the traditional recipe. I always go there whenever I visit Ibiza.
Ca n’ Anneta is actually called Can Pep Benet and opened in 1876 as a grocery store and a bar. Originally founded by Josep Noguera Rosselló and ever since has passed on from generation to generation.
San Carlos became famous as a hippie village in the 60s and 70s. Many of them settled in the beautiful surroundings of this northern Ibiza village. They usually lived in old farmhouses, often without electricity or even running water! The hippies are still in San Carlos, for them, being a ‘hippie’ is a lifestyle, not just a fashion and still many prefer to live without modern comforts.
Las Dalias, located about 1 km before San Carlos (coming from Santa Eulalia). It’s here you’ll find one of the most original hippie markets with its hundreds of brightly coloured stalls and larger than life characters. Every Saturday from 10 am until late in the evening, all year round, the sellers build up their stalls on the ivy-covered terraces and courtyards. In the summer you can also enjoy the market every Monday night.
