Cadiz is a city bathed by the ocean with a unique charm hard to put into words.
Cadiz can only be lived, from the inside, from the heart of the historical center, beating to the rhythm of its iridescent lights and generally pleasant climate all over the year.
Lean out and contemplate its never ending coast line, go over the attacks attempted by the French or English troops or get lost in the Roman Theatre’s remains, in its military Fortresses, or simply lay on the golden thin sand of its beaches is something hard to explain.
You have to feel it, live it and bring it along.
Sun and sea melt into this land welcoming a rich events’ calendar with in particular its Carnaval and Holy Week
However, Cadiz is even much more.
It takes nothing more than having a walk in its streets, visit its famous boroughs, enter its churches, stare at and contemplate the Caleta Beach’s lighthouse, its sunsets or get around its entire maritime journey, perhaps in a bike ride, to become aware of the fact that, in Cadiz, every step is adding to the discovery.
Get lost in its typical bars and restaurants; try out some fried fish, a cup of coffee or hot chocolate with churros, in the Flores square, read a good book under the shadow of a centenarian tree or even have an ice cream in an Italian salon… These are only a few small gratifying things we recommend you do during your stay in Cadiz.
