Cadiz is steeped in history, and is cited as the oldest inhabited city in Europe - founded more than 3000 years ago. For centuries Cadiz was Spain's main port, particularly for Atlantic crossings to the Americas.
With such rich history there are plenty of museums, churches & cathedrals, and points of interest such as the old prison and the classically styled town hall, and the city maintains its traditional feel with its narrow streets, whitewashed buildings, fine wrought ironwork, and many many gardens bursting with immense variety and colour as you can see in the following video of Cadiz.
The carnival of Cadiz takes place every February and are very popular in Spain. Every year, people from Malaga, Seville, Huelva and other provinces assist to this event wearing original fancy dresses to spend a good time with friends and locals.
Around the city's coastline are long beaches, as well as little coves and relaxing pocket beaches.
