  • View of Cadiz with its cathedral in the centre

This is a city known for its blue skies and its light. A city beside the sea that is ideal for strolling, where life is lived in the street, and which is famous for the fun-loving character of the local people. It is affectionately known as the 'Tacita de Plata' ('the little silver cup').Read more...

What to see A suggestion: explore this city on foot. Plaza de España square is home to numerous historic buildings and a monument to Las Cortes (the Spanish parliament) which commemorates the signing of the 1812 Constitution in the Oratory of San Felipe Neri, beside the Las Cortes Museum and the Visitor Centre. You can continue on along the Alameda Apodaca, a pleasant walk overlooking the sea. Although for a panoramic view of the city, we suggest climbing the Tavira tower, the highest point in the historic centre. Another excellent view can be had from the Poniente tower standing opposite the luminous Baroque cathedral. Another essential walk is following the walled enclosure of the historic centre and going through the parks of La Alameda and Genovés until you reach La Caleta. This is a small cove in the heart of the La Viña fishing neighbourhood, where you'll also see the castles of Santa Catalina and San Sebastián. This area is particularly attractive at dusk. If you're looking for beaches, La Victoria is the main one. It has a broad seafront promenade. Gastronomy Fish and shellfish are always a good choice. Other dishes worth trying are the tiny shrimp omelettes, 'papas aliñás' (potato salad), mackerel with 'periñaca' and above all the 'pescaíto frito' (freshly fried fish). This is a very popular dish to share with friends in any of the fried fish restaurants overlooking the sea in La Caleta. Festivities Its Carnival is known all over the world for its sense of fun, and takes place in February.
