Discover how technological innovations are being used to enhance the natural world at Spain’s only biotechnical botanical park. It will be an eye-opening experience as you wander through the gardens that replicate Ibiza’s seven natural habitats. Along the way, you will learn how atmospheric generators produce drinking water from vapor in the air and how a photobioreactor can synthesize organic matter such as algae to release its oxygen. The park’s vegetable piano—the world’s first—is particularly ingenious, as the vegetables act as biological antennas by converting frequencies from humans into a light-and-music show. Nearby, you will find Santa Gertrudis, a small, whitewashed town that first became popular in the 1960s as a haven for artists. While meandering along the cobbled streets, you might browse the many art galleries, reflect in the 19th-century Church of Sana Gertrudis and revel in the serene bohemian atmosphere.
