A tour of sculptures As there is still an hour left for the guided tour of the former hospital, we decided to wander around the island and visit the permanent sculpture trail. A tour of the surroundings where you can find works by Martin Creed, Franz West, Camille Henrot, Joan Miró, Louise Bourgeois and Eduardo Chillida. We surround the island and arrive at the ruins of the early Christian basilica. It was discovered in 1888 along with some adjacent rooms, which has led to believe that it could also have been a monastery.
After a pleasant stroll, we take our table at the gardens of La Cantina, the restaurant of Illa del Rei, to have an snack before the visit. The views of the sea are marvellous and we have a delicious sobrassada llonguet as a preview of what you can taste. At two o'clock we will return for lunch (previous reservation is essential).
