The city of Cadiz, with over three thousand years of history, is the oldest in Western Europe. Phonecians, Romans, Muslims and Christians have all left their mark, once a stronghold, imposing walls, castles and fortifications still line parts of the seafront. The city houses many preserved historic buildings; museums, towers, arches, churches, flamenco clubs, theatre, markets, historic houses, monuments, plazas, clubs and an impressive Cathedral. Cadiz is technically an island and its coastal location as part of Spain’s Costa de la Luz, means that Cruise liners enter the port and visitors can enjoy a city that benefits from watersports, the freshest scrumptious seafood, golden beaches and stunning costal views. Cadiz is a melting pot of culture and industry, a surprising mix where you find squeezed together late night taverns, a passionate Flamenco scene, a fishing industry, surfers drawn to the Atlantic waves, office workers, friendly witty locals and tourists. It makes for quite a mix.
