This cosmopolitan village is appealing to both visitors and the year-round residential community alike. Jesús, also known as Nuestra Señora de Jesús (in Spanish) and Nostra Senyora de Jesús (in Catalan), is a small inland town situated just a couple of miles to the North of Ibiza Town.
Jesús is renowned for its villas and amount of affluent visitors and residents. There are two main relatively new housing developments on the hills that overlook the village, the Can Pep Simó estate that was built in the 1970’s and the Ibiza Hills estate, properties of which are owned by some of the most affluent individuals.

Despite its proximity to the capital, this small town boasts quietness and tranquillity. So, it is ideally situated for those second-home buyers, who want to be close to the hectic Eivissa, but at the same time are looking to live in a peaceful area.
The area beats others in terms of the convenience and pleasantness. Because of its all year active international community, Jesús has an excellent range of facilities and amenities providing pretty much everything you need in the village itself.
It also attracts a number of wealthy individuals because of the proximity to the Club de Golf Ibiza, the only on the island.
You will find an amazing number of restaurants and cafes in the village, considering its reasonably small size. These vary from stylish pavement cafes and Italian restaurants to the traditionally Ibicenco establishments, such as, for example, bar and restaurant Bon Lloc, located on the corner of the main street. Here you find dishes made using local produce allowing you to taste what the region has to offer. Whether you are in search of a mid-morning pastry, a reasonably priced set menu-del-dia or exquisite evening dinner, you will find something to your taste in Jesús.
The bars are lively, but still different from more boisterous hotspots of Eivissa Town, allowing visitors to experience a relative calm away from the non-stop action of the island’s capital.
Jesús boasts close proximity to the idyllic quiet beaches. Playa S’Estanyol, for instance, offers super clean sand and sparkling sea. To reach it you have to go a 2km long track, which is worth doing to enjoy this laid-back paradise.
One of the most notable points of interest in the village is the church of La Madre de Dios de Jesús, known to be the oldest on the island. The church was built in throughout the 15th and 16th centuries and was previously lived by Franciscan and Dominican Monks. The Nostra Mare de Jesús, as it is also referred, has a very valuable piece – an XVI century Gothic altar. Painted by Rodrigo de Osuna in around 1500, it comprises 25 different themed panels. Some experts look at the image of the Church’s Virgin as one of the most beautiful within the Spanish medieval iconography.
The beautiful churchyard featuring water wheel and lemon trees is the ideal spot if you are looking for some privacy.
The popular beach resort of Talamanca is also situated just a few kilometres away and is similarly enticing.
This way, the village of Jesús indeed is an ideal location for those second home buyers who are seeking to enjoy the non-stop hive of activity of Ibiza Town, but at the same reside in the area of calm and tranquillity, away from this action.
