What to see The city lies beside the pinewoods, marshes and beaches of the Bay of Cádiz nature reserve and has 15 kilometres of outstanding beaches. The beaches beside the nature reserve like Levante and Valdelagrana are broad and have fine golden sand; other well-known beaches include La Puntilla, Santa Catalina and Fuenterrabia. One of the most important buildings in the centre of town is the San Marcos castle, which has a Christian chapel in its keep. You'll also find various Baroque buildings, including particularly the Casa de los Leones. Other sites of interest are the church of Mayor Prioral, the monastery of La Victoria, the churches of San Francisco, La Concepción and La Mayor de Nuestra Señora de los Milagros, and the convents of Las Capuchinas and El Espíritu Santo. It also has one of the oldest bullrings in Spain. Gastronomy The town stands on the Marco de Jerez wine route, so it is ideal for visiting wineries and sampling wines such as muscatel, Pedro Ximénez and manzanilla. We recommend some of the typical dishes such as the tiny shrimp pancakes, red-banded sea bream 'a la roteña' (with tomatoes, peppers, oil and wine), seafood soup, marinated dogfish and mackerel with noodles.
