Cadiz offers its visitors a wide range of tourist and leisure possibilities. The only fact of enjoying its dawns on the Bay is a worthy privilege. Its nice weather and its thirteen kilometers of beach at the bottom of the capital makes us enjoy of sun during the whole year. One of the particularities of Cadiz is its geographic shape, since it is located in a peninsula that enters in a bay.

Joy and light mix in this city with vestiges of other times. The fact that Cadiz is the oldest city in the West has made possible the reminiscences of people, races and cultures that were found at the capital and its port, that was one of the most important in the country, and protagonist in commercial activities during lots of years. In 1812, the first Spanish Constitution was proclaimed here.

A tourist tour around the monumental Cadiz will take us to visit the Cathedral and also Santa Cruz and San Felipe Neri churches, which are famous by their resistance to Napoleon's blockade. And also, they were headquarter of the provisional government that dictated the first liberal constitution. During Easter these temples are the center of the popular fervor and the most famous parades. Other interesting places are: Santa Cueva, with Goya's paintings, big mansions such as the Almirante House and the Chains House, the Tavira Tower and the museum

A walk around the old part of the city, that can be made by foot, in nearly an hour, enters the visitor in a Moorish environment, with narrow streets that end in little squares. You can not miss the visit to Genoves Park and the Alameda, with a fabulous sight of the Bay.

A noticeable place is the Roman Theater, located at Populo quarter, between the Old Cathedral and The Arch of the Whites. It was discovered in 1980, and it is considered one of the biggest buildings of this kind in Spain. It dates from I b. C. The tiers are divided into three sectors, the two inferior ones, supported by arched galleries, in a very good conservation state. The superior cavity could be built above a wood framework, and covered by an awning (velarium) supported in wood posts, whose moats appear in the tiers.
