If you have booked your hotel in Cadiz, you will also want to know what to see in the city. And although the beaches of the oldest city in the West need no introduction, Cadiz is much more than just that. Here are some things to see in Cadiz that you can’t miss on your visit:
One of the great attractions of the city is for a good reason: from here you can enjoy what many do not hesitate to point out as the best views of the city of Cadiz. Torre de Tavira is also the highest point of the old city, at no less than 45 meters above sea level. In addition, the camara oscura, inside, projects images of the exterior inside by a mechanism that has nothing digital. You will love it.
The Pópulo neighborhood
It is the oldest neighborhood in the historic center, and you can feel it as soon as you set foot in it. Its narrow streets and the remains of walls and arches that dot it everywhere make it very easy to be transported to antiquity, among points of interest such as the ancient Cathedral, the Roman Theater, or the church of Santa Cruz.
Don’t let this elusive park pass you by, because as soon as you cross its gates, located between the historic center and the city walls, you are transported to a tropical landscape. The park, dating from the 18th century, has all kinds of species, lakes, waterfalls and romantic nooks and crannies.
Santa Catalina Fortress
Next to the well-known beach of La Caleta is this 16th century castle, which offers one of the best views of the entire coast of Cadiz. In addition, the entrance is free and allows to check the great state of conservation of the walled complex.
