Situated in the extreme southwest of the Iberian Peninsula, Cádiz is like a bit of Spain cast out to sea and linked to the mainland by a single thread, a very narrow isthmus.
Considered to be the oldest city in the western world, there is no shortage of attractions in Cádiz. For a start there is its port, one of the most important in the country, from where Christopher Columbus set sail several times for the Americas. Between its kilometres of fine sand beaches, its lively small streets, its multicoloured façades and its markets of freshly caught fish, Cádiz is an authentic town, full of charm and good humour. Living to the Andalusian rhythm of conviviality, relaxation and fiesta, Cádiz is an ideal place for having a good time - first and foremost because of the famous carnival that makes it renowned, but also because of its Viña district where it is said that the party never ends.
