Also referred to as ‘Siren of the ocean’, Cadiz knew a golden era during the 18th century, dominated by the growth of overseas trade and when the city obtained the cosmopolitan character still reflected in the many monuments of its picturesque historical quarter. The old part of town is separated from the modern by the Puertas de Tierra city walls and features an impressive Neoclassical Baroque cathedral with a shiny gilded cupola, a Roman theatre, the 13th century Santa Cruz Church and the San Felipe Neri Church, dating from the 17th century, with a painting of the Immaculate Conception by Murillo as part of its high altar and home of the Spanish parliament in 1812 where the Spanish constitution was drawn up.
Venture into the narrow little streets of the old city centre with its town mansions and small pretty squares with numerous restaurants and bars serving the locally caught fresh fish and seafood accompanied the province’s excellent wines, sherries and brandies or take a stroll through Cadiz’ lovely parks with sweeping views of the bay and only a walk away from its fine beaches.
You can perfectly visit Cadiz on foot with your guide from the hotel.
