Cadiz, founded by the Phoenicians in 1100 BC, is the oldest city in Western Europe. In the southwest corner of Andalucia, built on a peninsula, its astonishing light and clarity of the air, and its rounded shape, give it the nickname of La Tacita de Plata – The Little Silver Cup.
Still a working port, the Romans revelled in it, Sir Francis Drake “singed the King of Spain’s beard” here, the Battle of Trafalgar was fought near here and Christopher Columbus set sail twice from here on his voyages of discovery.
Without any huge attractions, the main appeal of Cadiz is its charm and relaxed pace, and the endearing hospitality and generosity of the people, all found in its maze of narrow, intimate streets opening out into little, busy squares with bars serving “pescaito frito” (little fried fish) and manzanilla, reminding you that not much has changed in recent centuries.
