The Cadiz area guide

The city and province of Cadiz is set in the Andalusian region of Spain. Cadiz is in the southernmost part of Spain and has coastlines on both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea. The city itself, which is the capital of the province, is one of the oldest cities in Spain and a perfect example of Andalusian culture. As a historic port, the influences on the city and surrounding province from overseas trade are easy to see. Still a functioning port today, Cadiz is a living and breathing city with thousands of visitors each year.

Things to do

Within the city, there are many fine architectural examples to see. The city is set on a small outcrop of land that is almost completely surrounded by water, with the colourful buildings and ancient walls along said water make this a beautiful tourist attraction. Some of the main draws to the city are the many Plazas, colourful decorated and striking to see. For those more interested in the history of the area, many castles still stand, including the Castillo de Santa Catalina and San Sebastian, which stand at the ends of the Caleta beach. There’s also a Roman theatre, which was recently rediscovered and opened up. The Cadiz province is, like many provinces in Andalusia, dotted with beautiful villages, national parks, and, of course, stunning beaches.

Cadiz is also known for more than just its history. Each year the city hosts the Cadiz Carnival, which is one of the biggest in Spain. Throughout the year the various actors and entertainers can be seen preparing and practicing in the streets, often in the elaborate costumes the carnival is known for. The carnival itself hosts comedy acts, singers, and street dancing – all of which you might see being practiced on the streets throughout the year. Something not to be missed, but if you can’t make the carnival, you should definitely seek out to enjoy the street performers practicing.

Places to eat

As a well-established port, it’s no wonder that the best food to try in Cadiz is seafood. Calamari and Tuna are the most notable, with Tuna being the main fish sourced in the area. For those looking for something a bit more exotic, then Oysters can be found in the markets for reasonable prices. The Mercado Central de Abastos is the central market in Cadiz and offers a massive selection of seafood, and even a food court so that you can try before you buy. One thing that Cadiz has in common with its regional neighbours is the good food and fine wine. For the best fish, stay close to the port and try some freshly caught produce with a good regional wine. Anyone looking to try foods other than fish, the Cadiz Tapas restaurant is one of the best in the area, offering a very good selection of tapas.

Shopping

Cadiz is one of the smaller cities in Andalusia and thus doesn’t offer the range that you will see elsewhere, but it does have a selection of shops in the Plaza San Juan, two main shopping streets on Calle Ancha and Calle Columela, and a shopping centre. For all the basics and boutiques you’d need, Cadiz can be surprisingly good if you’re willing to look. For food shopping, you can find many shops, supermarkets, and markets for the essentials and the exotic.

Getting there and around

The closest airport to Cadiz is Jerez Airport, which serves the UK and Europe. The city and province are also served by the port of Cadiz from nearby locations. For those arriving to the area via nearby Saville airport, there is a rail line which connects Cadiz to Saville. Although there is local transport, it’s highly recommended that a car be used for travel.
