Historia Al Atlántico alquiler vacacional Cádiz (2)


Cadiz, the Tacita de Plata (little silver cup), the oldest city in the West, three thousand years old. Home to various civilisations over the centuries, all of which have left their mark on the city. Roman Cadiz, Phoenician Cadiz, and Moorish Cadiz.  Walk its streets and you will find clues to our origins around every corner.

Visit the different archeological sites, from Phoenician Gadir to Roman Gades. Emblematic buildings from different periods: the castles of San Sebastián and Santa Catalina, the Cathedral, the Torre Tavira,... walking through Cadiz is a journey through history, culture, and art. Every street and every corner have their story to tell.

San Fernando:

Together with Cadiz, the city of freedom. Here, a significant part of Spain's first Constitution in 1812 was put together, constitution that is popularly known as La Pepa. A seafaring city with important links to the Navy. The Naval quarter of San Carlos, the Carraca dockyard, the first in the whole of Spain,... Undoubtedly, stories past and present that are worth knowing. If we are to talk about coastal towns, we must not forget.

El Puerto de Santa María:

El Puerto goes back centuries and not only was it home to various civilisations, but it was also one of the ports from which Columbus' fleet set sail en route for the Americas.

The white villages:

The mark of El Andalus. Benamahoma, Alcalá, Zahara, Algar, Arcos de la Frontera, Setenil de las Bodegas, Bornos, Prado del Rey, El Bosque, Ubrique, Grazalema,... 19 villages in all, where the white of the lime and labyrinth of small streets evoke stories of their Andaluz past. Leather makers, sweet makers, the most typical traditions of the cultures of yesteryears.

Jerez de la Frontera:

Monumental Jerez. A landmark city, legacy of the various cultures that lived there. A walk through Jerez is to take in the neighbourhoods of long-standing traditions, streets, squares, and quiet corners where fountains and orange trees accompany palaces, churches, and sherry houses. Its impressive Cathedral, the Cartuja Monastery, religious and civil monuments, but above all, its tradition: its wine, its horses, its flamenco, the latter to be found in its most authentic districts, Santiago and San Miguel. All of it, an experience for the senses, a city to fall in love with!
