These photos were shot on our first trip to Cadiz from our base in nearby Chiclana de la Frontera. There’s still lots we haven’t seen yet. This was just a flavour of Cadiz.
We parked in one of the many underground car parks and took a leisurely stroll through narrow streets. The weather in November was sunny with blue skies and temperatures around 20 degrees. People were sitting outside cafe’s drink coffee and eating tomato spread on toast.
The central market was buzzing with activity and all the fish very neatly presented. The adjoining food stalls were quite upmarket but prices were very reasonable. A cold beer was only 1 EUR! We walked along the sea wall towards the famous Cathedral. It reminded us of the Malecon in Havana.
We were pleasantly surprised by the mellow vibe in this compact town and we intend to visit at least one more time between now and New Year. This means we’ll be able to bring you a more detailed guide to Cadiz in due course. Here are a few of the highlights from our first visit. Feel free to leave a comment!
