While Ibiza has a land full of hills, Formentera is quite horizontal, with the exception of 'La Mola', which reaches approximately 120 meters. For a long time the only inhabitants of the island were lizards. The human footprint came with the Byzantines, Arabs and Turks until the Black Death obliterated the city. It was not until the seventeenth century that people began to repopulate the island, coming from Ibiza.
