Cadiz is the longest continually inhabited city in Europe. Please see my disclosure policy for more information. Given its year history, of course Cadiz offers culture and tradition along with unforgettable gastronomic tastes and experiences, beaches and romantic vistas. The kilometre coastline boasts 83 beaches. While there is just one in the old town Playa de la Caletamany of the others are easily accessible via a short bus trip. There are plenty of beaches that are easily accessible from Cadiz.
But, whatever season you visit, with its history of Phonecian, Roman and Moorish occupants, there are plenty of things to do in Cadiz. The fortifications are featured in most promotional material for Cadiz. Part of the attraction of the old town is its three or four storey buildings which shade very narrow streets most of the day.
Fortifications line the waterfront at Cadiz. The streets lead into larger plazas where you can enjoy the cafes and restaurants in the open space. They come alive as the local meeting point and are frequented by musicians who move from one plaza to the next. Among the street decorations, you will enjoy the Moorish tiled walls and ancient facades.
Like to visit more cities in Spain? The Moorish facades of many buildings in Cadiz provide colour and interest. The Cathedral on the Sea offers an amazing view of the old town from its Bell Tower. This is not as difficult as it sounds as you walk up a circular ramp nearly all the way to the top. If you are disappointed that there are few steps at the Bell Tower, climbing up to the Camara Oscura camera obsura in English will rectify that with steps! You can about the Camara Oscura here. The largest green area on the Cadiz map is Parque Genovis, the botanic garden.
It features more than species of trees and overlooks the sea. Cadiz has a delightful fresh produce market, Mercado Central. If you are staying in an apartment you may want to choose some fresh fish and enjoy the fruit and vegetables. Or you may just enjoy strolling through the market, taking in the colour and scents. There are endless options for food but the Spanish eat their evening meal late, so if, like us, you eat a little earlier, we recommend Bajamarjust outside Mercado Central the market.
It is open daily from 8am to midnight. We enjoyed the potato salad with anchovies, octopus salad, and tuna and onion stew.
Our most authentic Spanish meal experience was the tapa at Freiduria Las Flores just around the corner from the Mercado. This is among the busiest restaurants in Cadiz and there is nearly always a waiting list for tables — yes, even in the shoulder season.
We ate at the bar and enjoyed being guided on tapa etiquette and selection by the locals. A noisy but memorable experience. Enjoying tapa with the locals in Cadiz. Look for air-conditioned accommodation even outside the main heat of summer, as the buildings tend to retain the heat. Why not take a guided small group day trip to Seville? for current prices. However, having been to Morocco on a trip, it really warrants a couple of weeks at least in my opinion.
