Destination of the month: Cadiz
NEWSLETTER – JULY 2017
Cádiz: the southernmost region of Spain, the gate to Africa, the Spanish Habana, the silver cup
The city’s history of being occupied by Romans and Moors, enriched by trade with the new world, sacked by the British, fortified, and matured in the damp sea air means every one of its narrow cobbled streets spans centuries
The old town poking into the Atlantic like a finger is ancient, but the place has an invigorating, youthful, playful spirit and some cute retro bars.
Seville and Jerez airports are 1½ hours and 40 minutes’ drive away respectively, and it linked by rail as well.
Food is exquisite art in Cádiz: a flurry of inventive gastronomic activity and the availability of fine food served in tapas-sized portions – at tapas prices – is a major plus.
Cadiz is in the middle of the sherry triangle, so finos, olorosos and other nectars fill the barrels and are the star attraction, but there’s much to try from all over Spain, along with vermouth and food, specially fish, most notably variations of tuna, fresh from nearby Barbate.
Cadiz has a burgeoning underground scene: the Gadir archaeological site, the extensive excavated remains of one of the oldest cities in the World; the Catacumbas del Beaterio, part of a network of tunnels used for religious purposes; and the Roman Theatre of Cadiz (It’s been 2000 years since the last show)
Cadiz is well prepared for MICE Events: the health medical sector, the pharmaceuticals, information technology and telecommunications, economic and financial sector, and the socio-political are the largest generators of meetings in the province of Cadiz.
In addition, such well-known competitions as the Golf Ryder Cup, the Motorcycling World Championship, the World Equestrian Games or World Olympic Sailing Classes also are hold in Cadiz surroundings.
