How to Enjoy Life in Cadiz the Oldest City of Spain
“Founded 3,000 years ago by the Phoenicians, Cádiz is the oldest city in Western Europe. A stroll along the Cadiz sea front, from La Caleta to the Campo del Sur, will remind visitors of the image of the avenue Malecón in Havana, due to its similarities with Latin American cities. The cathedral in Cadiz is a good example of this influence! As are several of the manor houses and the towers with their views which developed in the midst of old Gadir’s cityscape.”
