An ancient port city in southwest Spain, Cadiz was a 16th century base for exploration and trade.
With over 100 watchtowers, traditionally used for spotting pirates and enemy ships, Cadiz is the oldest inhabited city in Spain.
Visit the 18th century waterfront cathedral with its golden dome, boasting breath-taking views of the city and the sea.
The Old Town is characterised by the antiquity of the various quarters and includes narrow winding streets with connecting plazas. Newer parts of the city have wide avenues and numerous parks.
The Torre de Tavira became the official tower of Cadiz due to its height and position. Today, you can go up the tower, enjoy a presentation in a Camera Obscura, and get the best views of the city.
The Museum of Cadiz is a great place to learn more about the history of the province. Within the museum you will find Phoenician sarcophagi, Roman statues, and fine arts by Andalucian artists such as Zurbarán and Murillo.
