  • La Barrosa beach. Chiclana de la Frontera. Cadiz

A small city of whitewashed houses with a wine-producing and flamenco tradition located inside the Bay of Cadiz nature reserve. Its beaches attract hundreds of holidaymakers who every year come to enjoy the sun.Read more...

What to see The main attraction is the broad beach of La Barrosa with its six kilometres of fine golden sand, which is naturally divided into two different areas. The area along the promenade has beachfront bars and restaurants, while from the promenade to the Torre del Puerco tower it becomes wilder and is bordered by pine trees. The other beach is Sancti Petri. Opposite the coast lies a small island where you'll find the remains of the castle of Sancti Petri. Its mediaeval tower currently serves as a lighthouse and can be visited on a boat trip to the island. The historic quarter is best explored on foot. One of its key symbols is the Clock Tower, which you'll see in the Plaza Mayor square beside the church of San Juan Bautista. We also recommend visiting some of its wineries, as they form part of the Marco de Jerez Wine Route. Gastronomy This area is famous for its wines (white and muscatel) and cured pork products, of which the most typical are the 'butifarra', 'chicharrones', 'longaniza' and black pudding. We also recommend the fish and the traditional dish known as 'berza chiclanera' (cabbage and bean casserole). Nature The town is part of the Bay of Cadiz nature reserve, and the surrounding area is home to pine forests, lagoons and salt flats.
