The next stop on our cultural tour through Santa Eulària is located just 200 metres from Puig de Missa church: the Ethnographic Museum of Ibiza. Set in a 300-year-old farmhouse that is also a national heritage site, the museum showcases a complete ethnographic collection and allows the visitor to discover the defining characteristics of the island’s unique rural architecture, one of its key heritage assets.
Renowned architects such as Le Corbusier, Erwin Broner and Josep Lluís Sert applauded the ingenious architectural solutions used in the island’s country dwellings together with the long-standing tradition that spawned such practices. We recommend that you spend some time during your visit to quietly explore this excellent example of Ibicenco rural architecture, where you will find the porxo (living room), the kitchen, the wine cellar, the oil press, the well and the cistern; while, on the second floor, we find the cases de dormir (bedrooms) and the porxet (balcony).
The rooms of the farmhouse contain the museum’s permanent exhibition, which includes clothing, jewellery, household utensils, work and farming tools, musical instruments, weapons and items for personal grooming.

Can Ros has its own winepress, located inside a cave that opens into the bedrock. It also has the honour of being the birthplace of Father Antonio Guasch i Bufí (1879-1965), a Jesuit priest and linguist who learned to speak and write in 12 languages in addition to being a scholar of the Guaraní language.
