Guide of Cádiz


Located in the autonomous community of Andalusia in southern Spain, Cádiz is the provincial capital and primary seaport of Cádiz province. The city is located on a long, narrow peninsula that extends into the Gulf of Cádiz, an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean. The city is surrounded by water, is fortified by walls, and has only one land entrance.

Climate in Cádiz

Cádiz has a Mediterranean climate, with moderate winters and pleasant summers. During the summer months, Cádiz's weather is hot and humid, arid, and clear, while the winter months are cold and rainy, windy, and gloomy. The ideal time to visit Cádiz is between June and September.


Cádiz, formerly known as Gadir, was one of the earliest Phoenician outposts in the west, selling Baltic amber, Cornish tin, Spanish from Rio Tinto and other areas in Southern Iberia, and subsequently trading with Tartessus. There are foundations for defensive walls dating back to the Phoenicians' establishment of a port in the 7th century BCE.

Things To Do in Cádiz

Visit the Cádiz Cathedral

With its sparkling golden dome dominating the Cádiz skyline, the magnificent Cádiz Cathedral, or Catedral Nueva, is one of the most famous tourist sites in Cádiz. Construction started in 1722 and was finished in 1838, depicting Spanish Baroque and Neoclassical styles. Climb the Torre de Poniente (tower) for 360-degree views of the city and the Plaza de Pio XII. The stunning interiors of the cathedral are no less spectacular, as is the Treasury, which contains the Cathedral Museum and its great collection of religious artwork, including works by Alonso Cano and Murillo. You should also add the Catedral Vieja, popularly known as Santa Maria Church, in your itinerary, since it is the former cathedral.

Explore the beaches of Cádiz

The 'Blue Flag' beach, Playa de la Caleta on the Bay of La Caleta inside the Old Town, is one of Cádiz's finest. This natural harbour, with its vast beach and calm seas, is a safe sanctuary for inexperienced swimmers. There are lifeguards on duty, as well as a few restaurants and snack bars. The Playa de la Victoria, which stretches for 2.8 kilometres along the whole western edge of Cádiz, is another famous beach. It is often regarded as Europe's greatest urban beach, and you should not miss it if you prefer outdoor activities such as volleyball, which is played on numerous courts here. Paseo Maritimo, the lovely promenade here, with its chiringuitos (bar selling drinks, tapas, and sometimes meals), is ideal for a fun-filled day.

Get a panoramic view from Torre Tavira

Cádiz was a significant port city in the 18th century. There are 129 watchtowers that bear witness to this. The Torre Tavira in the city centre is one of them, rising at 45 metres in height. The breathtaking views from this watchtower that reach all the way down the coastline and into the Atlantic Ocean will captivate you. Visitors may also utilise the Camera Obscura here, which provides 360-degree views of the city's landmarks. There is also a museum with historical and trade displays, as well as a panel devoted to the Spanish Constitution.

Eating Out in Cádiz

In Cádiz, like in any other Spanish city, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to fantastic eating experiences. Here are our top choices. Casa Manteca is a well-known tapas bar with a traditional atmosphere. Chicharrones, a sort of pressed pork served on waxed paper, is their house specialty. Café Royalty, as the name indicates, is a regal dining establishment. Beautiful paintings on the ceiling and gold embellishments everywhere steal your breath away as you settle down to enjoy a platter of picatostes or sugar-dusted fried bread. La Candela is another tapas bar that takes pleasure in the presentation and flavour of its food. We suggest that you reserve your table ahead of time since it may become rather packed. Their marinated fish with roasted veggies and hot and chocolatey croquettes are also delicious.



Cádiz is served by Jerez International Airport (XRY) which is located at a distance of 28.1 miles from Cádiz. It has several connecting flights to the rest of Spain and Europe. Alternatively, you can fly into Seville Airport (SVQ) and drive down in a hire car.

Getting Around Cádiz

Cádiz has a bus network, which is the most convenient and cost-effective way to get around. Many visitors also opt to explore Cádiz at their own leisure and have access to the most remote parts of a place by renting a car. Many car rental agencies may be found in the city centre. Parking is usually available in the basement of most hotels. Furthermore, there are several parking facilities in the Old Town. The best way to explore the Old Town, though, is on foot.
