In Santa Eulària des Riu at Passeig de s’Alamera you can already see the mythical creature sitting in the fountain: the “fameliar”, a kind of ugly elf with a very big mouth, because it likes to eat a lot. At the upper part of the square, opposite the well-known and well-visited Restaurante Royalty, a small exhibition in the bombshelter built in 1937 is dedicated to the “fameliars”. Directly from the Passeig it goes down a few steps. The exhibition is open mondays to fridays from 9am to 1pm. If you are here anyway, you should make a short visit. The Passeig de s’Alamera is a great place with palm trees, benches, cafes and restaurants directly at the sea … very nice!
The legend of the “fameliars”
It is reported of small, unsightly beings who carry out quickly and accurately any work that is assigned to them. But as soon as they run out of work, they get bored and demand: work or food! So if you do not want the fameliar to eat your pantry empty, rather give him lenghthy or totally impossible tasks. The legend continues … read about in the exhibition and in several languages.
Keep your eyes open for the fameliars in Ibiza, because every one you find will bring you luck!
