Sant Josep de sa Talaia (Spanish: San José Obrero) is a village and municipality of the Balearic Islands in western Ibiza. The village is 10.7 miles (17.2 km) west of the capital Ibiza Town and is Located on the PM803 highway between Eivissa town and Sant Antoni de Portmany. The town is 6.5 miles (10.5 km) from the island’s airport. The population of the municipality is at 2400.

Even though the larger towns Ibiza Town, Sant Antoni de Portmany and Santa Eulària des Riu have a greater public awareness, Sant Josep de sa Talaia is by far the richest municipality per inhabitant of Ibiza. This is partly because Ibiza Airport belongs to Sant Josep. On the other hand, the remote corners of the community have developed into an attraction of global prominence.

The Parish Church of Sant Josep de sa Talaia is one of the most popular churches to visit on the island. Many holidaymakers find their way here as part of official island tours. Unfortunately many of the churches original religious art works where damaged or destroyed in the violence of the Spanish Civil War of 1936. The wooden baroque style pulpit did survive and dates from between 1761 and 1763. The pulpit is decorated with a representation of the mysteries and was painted by Josep Sánchez Ocaria of Mallorca.

Despite the damage to the churches artefacts the Patrimony Department and the Saint Joseph parish continue an ongoing program of restoration work to the works of art. Two such restored works are a statue of Saint Anne the mother of the Virgin Mary and a painting of the Ecce Homo by Sánchez de Ocaña. The church has a single Nave which has a barrel vaulted roof. The walls to the side of the nave have several smaller chapels.
