All important attractions in Cadiz – The most beautiful churches, castles, fortresses in Cadiz and the surrounding areas are yet to discover.
One of the main attractions of the Spanish city is the 18th-century cathedral. It is located on the sea and in the historic downtown on the Plaza de la Catedral. The port and the Santa Cruz church are in the immediate vicinity and the train station is not far either. The bright yellow cathedral, covered with glazed tiles is clearly visible from anywhere in the city. It hovers like an oversized egg yolk over the catedral and the white roofs of the city.
Gran Teatro Falla in Cadiz
The Gran Teatro Falla is located in the heart of the old town and is one of the most famous sights of the Andalusian port city. It is a must see especially for all architecture lovers, as it is one of the first buildings in Spain to incorporate oriental components.
Neighborhood of La Vina

La Vina is particularly famous for its nice restaurants and interesting flamenco bars .From this quarter you can reach the only beach in the historic city, within a short time. The quarter gets its charm from the friendly streets, in which one restaurant connects to the next. Tables and chairs are of course outside and invite you to have tapas or a drink.
Plaza de San Juan de Dios
