Why visit Cadiz?
The history of Cadiz is one of the longest throughout Europe. This city is currently known as the Silver Cup, recalling its origins from over 3,000 years ago. It is also believed that this was the epicentre of the mythic civilization of Tartessos.
It is worth walking through the Plaza de San Juan de Dios, the centre of the city’s urban activity and where the City Hall, Church of San Juan de Dios and Miranda House are located.
One of the most typical images of Cadiz is to see its entire historic downtown area from the shores of Cadiz Bay. From the entire skyline, the building that draws the most attention is the Santa Cruz Cathedral. It’s a temple that mixes Baroque and Neoclassical styles, since more than one hundred years were spent building it, from 1722 to 1838.
Visit the Plaza de España, where the commemorative monument to the Constitution of 1812 is located, put into law by the Spanish General Courts in Cadiz.
Get to know its two most important beaches: the charming Caleta Beach, located near the historic centre and the Castle of Santa Catalina, and the great Victoria Beach, which is 3 km long, borders the most modern part of the city and is the busiest beach.
Cross one of the 2 bridges that give access to the city: Constitution Bridge or the New Bridge.
Another of the most celebrated buildings in Cadiz is its famous Manuel de Falla Theatre, a construction built in the 19th century, but which continues to be one of the epicentres of cultural life in Cadiz.
During a visit to Cadiz, you must take time to tour three of its most emblematic and typical neighbourhoods. They are the Viña, Santa Maria and Populo neighbourhoods. The first of these is the fisherman’s district, the second is considered the cradle of flamenco art, and the Populo neighbourhood is the oldest in the city.
Given its age, other historical monuments can be visited in Populo. Three of the city’s medieval gates are conserved there, and there is also the Roman Theatre and the Santa Cruz church, which was the old Cathedral. And in that neighbourhood is the San Juan de Dios Plaza, which has several bars where the best Cadiz delicacy is served: fried fish.
Another interesting neighbourhood is the Mentidero, which in the past was the urban centre. The Oratorio de San Felipe Neri, a Barroque construction that showcases the masterpieces of Andalusian painter Murillo, is located there. Also in this neighbourhood is the place that was headquarters of the historic 1812 Courts of Cadiz, when the first Spanish constitution was drafted, popularly called La Pepa, to be released on San José day. This showcases what a trip to Cadiz has to offer: a very animated and unique city due to its long history and for the vitality felt in its streets.
