Cadiz sits on Spain’s southernmost point, with one foot in the Mediterranean and one foot in the Atlantic. As the longest continuously inhabited settlement in the Iberian Peninsula, Cadiz certainly has a long and fascinating history, which is evident throughout the town, from the ancient Roman theatre to the impressive city walls and seafront fortifications. Cadiz is also home to some of Spain’s most spectacular beaches, and the surrounding region is an area of outstanding natural beauty! As an important seafaring town, the local cuisine is well known for its delicious fish and seafood dishes, as well as its fresh fruit and vegetables from market gardens, cheese from the Sierra and beef from La Janda!
Cadiz also hosts the Cadiz Carnival each year, one of the most spectacular festivals in the world! Visit the distinctive Cathedral, with its glimmering golden dome, before stopping for refreshments or some tapas in a picturesque plaza or park. Take a walk on the promenade, gazing out over the azure expanse of the Atlantic. The Playa de la Caleta, overlooked by palm trees and an elegant spa house, is the perfect place to watch the sunset.
As well as all this, the locals are well known for being very open, friendly and welcoming, making Cadiz a fantastic location for foreign students to learn Spanish!
