Located on a rocky peninsula and almost entirely surrounded by water, Cadiz was founded by the Phoenicians in 1.100 BC and the oldest inhabited city in Europe. The city played an important role in discovery and colonization of the Americas during the 15th century and was the launching point from which Christopher Columbus set sail on his voyage to the New World.

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.
