Cadiz Spain

The Spanish city of Cádiz is home to beautiful Andalusian architecture and clean beaches perfect for sunbathing. After a day on the sands, explore the city’s medieval alleyways and search out artisanal restaurants serving seafood paella and other regional dishes.

Cádiz’ standout architectural highlight is the Santa Cruz Cathedral constructed by Vincent Acero. Known as the ‘Cathedral of the Americas’ because of its connection to Spanish/American trade, the structure remains one of the city’s finest examples of Baroque architecture, rivalling the ornate bell tower of the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Merced. Elsewhere, the Roman Theatre of Cádiz showcases architecture dating back thousands of years, highlighting the city’s illustrious past.

Situated at the end of the Cádiz Peninsula, La Caletta beach is renowned for its clean facilities and close proximity to the castles of Santa Catalina and San Sebastián. Alternatively, Le Victoria beach is popular with locals and features showers, lifeguards, beach bars, loungers and an outdoor cinema. Quieter beaches can also be found at Cortadura and El Chato.

Home to one of Spain’s most diverse food scenes, Cádiz offers a selection of unique regional dishes. Visit the Mercado Central to purchase delicious street food and vegetables or head to the Le Vino district to sample exotic seafood. For dinner, take a walk into Paseo – a centrally-located hotspot, where you’ll find restaurants serving tapas and shrimp tortillas or visit high-end restaurants like Meson Cumbres Mayores for traditional Iberian beef and Flamenco dancing.
