Cadiz stands on a peninsula jutting out into a bay, and is almost entirely surrounded by water. Named Gadir by the Phoencians, who founded their trading post in 1100 BC, it was later controlled by the Carthaginians, until it became a thriving Roman port. It sank into oblivion under the Visigoths and Moors, but attained great splendour in the early 16th century as a launching point for the journey to the newly discovered lands of America. Cadiz was later raided by Sir Francis Drake, in the struggle to gain control of trade with the New World, and managed to withstand a siege by Napoleon's army. In the early 19th century Cadiz became the bastion of Spain's anti-monarchist, liberal movement, as a result of which the country's first Constitution was declared here in 1812.
Cadiz is a lovely place to visit with seafront, gardens and open squares, big, wide avenues and the old town with high turreted houses and narrow alleys. Take time to wander through the streets, eat al fresco in the squares and soak up the sun on Cadiz's beach.
The highlight of Cadiz is its cathedral. The cathedral took 116 years to build. Most is in a Baroque style but later parts include rococo and neo-classical elements. It is a beautiful white building with a golden dome which is one of the largest cathedrals in Spain. You can climb on to the roof of the cathedral to see its yellow-tiled dome up close and get some great views over the Cadiz coastline.
Behind the cathedral a first century Roman theatre has been excavated. This is the second largest Roman theatre in the world! North of the cathedral is the Torre Tavira, an eighteenth century mansion with a tall tower which was the city's watchtower in the eighteenth century. This has now been converted into a camera obscura. This is another place to get great views of the city.
The old town is a warren of narrow streets with occasional sunny plazas These are often surrounded by impressive buildings in Gothic and neo-classical styles. The Plaza San Antonio is a particularly nice square and at one time was the main square in Cadiz. Plaza de Mina is probably the most beautiful of all the squares and is also the location of the museum of Cadiz.
The Museo de Cadiz has a large art gallery including works by Rubens and Miro. Art enthusiasts should also visit the chapel of the Hospital de las Mujeres which houses 'St Francis in Ecstasy' by El Greco.
Whilst in Cadiz be sure to go to one of the 'freidurias' - fried fish shops. Cadiz is apparantly the inventor of take-away fish and it is a firm favourite with tourists and locals alike.
As well as being a lovely city Cadiz is a coastal town and has some beaches. The main beach at Cadiz is the Playa de la Caleta. Nearby is the Santa Catalina castle which once defended the beach and is now used for concerts and exhibitions.
The Cadiz carnival takes place at the end of February/begining of March each year and is one of Spain's biggest festivals. If you like to party this is one to head for.
Note: Cadiz was the Ibero-American Capital of Culture 2012 and this is particularly special as it is the first time the title has been help by a European city. The city was also host to the 22nd annual Latin American Heads of State and Government Summit.
Jerez de la Frontera is a lovely nearby town and is home to the famous Jerez de la Frontera horse fair which takes place every year in May and attracts horses and carriages decorated with flowers from all over the region. It is also of course renowned for its sherry and its flamenco.
Also nearby is Arcos de la Frontera which is one of Spain's lovely 'white villages'. This particular one is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages of Spain.
