Ancient history and settlement.
Cadiz is a city with a rich history. It’s considered the oldest city in Europe founded by the Phoenicians. Cadiz city, whose nickname is the Silver Cup, has a lot of sights: the Cathedral, the city walls and fortification, the castle of Santa Catalina, the Roman Theater,…;
Besides Cadiz city, Cadiz province offers a lot of landmarks due to its incredible beaches with white sand, due to its white villages with typically Arab urban layout (Arco de la Frontera, Vejer de la Frontera, …). In Cadiz, there is also a great combination among sherry wines, Flamenco & Spanish horses.
Southest point of Europe
The province of Cadiz is located at the south of Andalusia. Tarifa is the nearest point to Africa with only 14 km of distance in between. It’s possible to enjoy beautiful and virgin beaches along its 250 km of coastline. Most of Cadiz coastline is located at Atlantic Ocean.Therefore, the sea water is usually colder than the sea water from the Mediterranean sea and there are more waves for surfers.
A lovely beach day can be combined with the visit to interior of Cadiz province to visit its white villages.
For lovers of Spanish culture and history, a stop must be done in Jerez de la Frontera.
We highly recommend the Cadiz food highlighting the reddish beef ribeye, fried fish, shrimp pancake, tuna with onions, etc.
