Join our Free Tour in Cádiz and discover the oldest city in the West. Its Phoenician origins, the passage of Greeks and Romans, Jews, Muslims and Christians, have made the city stand out for a long history of events that we would like you to be a part of.
We will start in the Plaza de San Juan de Dios, an emblematic place of the city, located next to the City Hall with neoclassical facades. We will continue to the Campo Sur area, where we will enjoy the best views of the new area of Cádiz, its beaches and the ocean, thanks to the elevation of the promenade. We will highlight in this area the set of buildings of gaudy colors that contrast with the standards of white houses of the city and browns of the oyster stone typical of the old walls. In addition, we can enjoy the remains of the Roman Theater, and the back of the old cathedral and the new cathedral. Annexing this area with the Barrio del Pópulo, the oldest in Europe, where we will discover several vestiges of Cadiz history. Strolling through its narrow streets supposes cultural immersion in its historical background. Another of the neighborhoods where we will pass will be La Viña, the seaside neighborhood that is related to its past as a place of vine cultivation. Currently known for the celebration of carnival. During the tour we will highlight the tapas bars and recommended restaurants to eat a good fried fish.
We finish the tour at the most popular beach in the city, La Caleta beach. From here we will remember that natural port where the Phoenician, Carthaginian and Roman ships anchored in the city. We will also see the source of inspiration that for years has served musicians and poets, and we will appreciate the old spa that today is home to the Andalusian Underwater Archeology Center, the Castles of San Sebastián and Santa Catalina, and the University Campus.
