Jutting out of the Bay of Cádiz, and almost entirely surrounded by water, Cádiz can lay claim to being Europe’s oldest city, where legend names Hercules as its founder. Some of its 18th century walls still stand and the old quarter is famous for its picturesque charm.
One of the best ways of getting to know a city is by exploring on foot. Your guide will take you through narrow lanes, where flowers sprout from rusting cans mounted on walls beside religious paintings. At the Plaza de España, you’ll find a monument to the first Spanish constitution of 1812 and then pass by the Town Hall in the Plaza de San Juan de Dios. The golden cupola of the Cathedral looms high above long, white houses and you’ll hear how this house of worship was built from silver and gold from the New World. Relax awhile over a sherry, a beer or a soft drink at a local café.
Get the best out of your visit by exploring the many highlights of this once highly fortified town in the company of a knowledgeable guide.
