10 reasons why you’ll just love Cadiz…

The city of Cádiz

The people

The people of Cadiz are famous for their openness, their hospitality and for their quick and witty sense of humour.

The beaches

The beaches of Cadiz are considered to be amongst the best urban beaches in Spain and there’s a wide choice: from the beaches of the historic Santa María del Mar and La Caleta to the Atlantic dunes of Cortadura.

The food and drink

Top quality ingredients: fish and seafood from the Bay of Cadiz, fruit and vegetables from the market gardens, cheese from the Sierra, beef from La Janda, and at very reasonable prices.

The traditions

Even though Cadiz faces the sea in all directions, it has maintained its centuries-old traditions with a wise mixture of history and modernity.

Not in vain is Cadiz considered to be one of the oldest cities in the West.

Fun and enjoyment

Cadiz is a university city and as such has a wide range of free time activities for young people. There are concerts and fiestas all year long.

The culture

Cadiz offers an extensive and very varied programme of cultural activities. There are weekly performances of more classical music and theatre at the Teatro Falla, and the Central Lechera and other alternative venues offer opportunities to see less formal performances.

Cadiz is more

We almost literally have one foot in the Med, one in the Atlantic…

The province of Cadiz offers the advantage of having one foot in the Mediterranean and the other in the Atlantic so that visitors are able to enjoy a great selection of landscapes and environments


Cadiz is one of the original birthplaces for the art of flamenco, which grew up in the triangle formed by Cadiz, Jerez and Sevilla.


There are six natural parks and one national park in the province of Cadiz, so if you are interested in walking or cycling you are in an ideal place.

Living stones

Cadiz is a city with more than 2000 years of history and as you would expect, history is to be found in daily life.

Wander around the neighbourhoods of El Pópulo, the medieval city, or La Viña and you’ll see what we mean…
