Tilling is a form of land preparation traditionally undertaken using handtools.

Traditional farming methods are still practised in rural Ibiza. Some areas are protected from development and commercialization by their UNESCO World Heritage Site classification.

Rural Ibiza has a rustic charm and beauty thanks to the traditional approach to agriculture: the fields lie fallow for several years, and during this time produce a variety of colourful flower displays. Half of the island is still covered by natural forest; in other areas, fertile valleys hold olive trees, almonds and carabs.

The Citreon 2CV was an economy car produced from 1948 to 1990. It was technologically advanced and innovative, but simple and reliable. The car was popular in England, and became a great favourite for travellers on long trips or tours. In the sixties the 2CV became synonymous with the 'flower power' era and freedom.
