History

Formentera is the name derived from the word “frumentarium” a Latin word meaning “granary”. Before being conquered by the Catalans and later becoming a part of the Kingdom of Majorca during the medieval period, the history of Formentera is stained by bloodshed during a series of conquests which made this island pass from the hands of the Carthaginians to the ancient Romans and then onto the Visigoths, the Byzantines, the Vandals, and the Arabs. It was in 1109 that this island was conquered by Sigurd me, the Norwegian king. In due course of time it attained the status of an independent insular council along with other islets. The evidence of colonization over the past 4000 years is still available when you see the Megalithic graves. After the Spanish Civil War during the period 1936 to 1939, Formentera started to settle down to its daily activities before tourism became the main resource of economic revival. From a small island in the past to becoming a paradise for holiday makers, this island offers serenity and tranquility to one and all, now a haven for writers, musicians and artists alike.
