Coastal Cádiz

Recently, I went on holiday to Spain and travelled to Seville, Costa Ballena, Rota (more blog posts to follow) and Cádiz. Cádiz is a city and port in southwestern Spain. It is the capital of the Province of Cádiz, one of eight which make up the autonomous community of Andalusia. Two of Colombus’ four voyages set out for the New World from Cádiz.

I only visited Cádiz for one day so I had a limited time to look around the city. There is no denying the fact that Cádiz is a wonderful city with lots to offer. The city is unique in the way that it is surrounded by water. There are lots of lovely cobbled streets, similar to many other cities in Spain. There are lots of brilliant shops in the city. When I went at the end of May the temperature was very nice and warm with plenty of sunshine.

The cathedral in Cádiz took 116 years to build which is why it has such a mix in styles. I only had a quick peak inside but from what I could tell, it looked very nice. The architecture outside is wonderful and definitely worth visiting.

Unfortunately, the food that I had in Cádiz was not the best however, I think that this was completely down to the fact that we picked a bad restaurant and didn’t realise until it was too late so do not be put off by this. I am certain that there are many excellent places to eat in the city and there seemed to be lots of good tapas bars but I never had the chance to discover this since I was only there for such a short period of time.

Overall, I would say that Cádiz is a great city and I would love to see other areas of it. I would definitely recommend visiting it as it really is a fantastic place with a good atmosphere.
