Spain is located in southwestern Spain and belongs
to the autonomous community of Andalusia. The Gulf of Cadiz
houses the city of Cadiz on a peninsula entering the Bay of
Cadiz. Spain Cadiz is surrounded by very high and thick walls
which when viewed from the sea present a very picturesque
visual appearance. Cadiz standing on a peninsula jutting out
into a bay, and surrounded by water is a splendor sight by
itself. The old part of Spain Cadiz, commonly referred to
as the Old City is a marked contrast to the newer areas of
the town. The townscape of the old part of Cadiz in Spain
is made up of narrow alleys which lead into a number of plazas.
Wide avenues and modern buildings make up the newer areas.
The old, central quarter of Cadiz is famous for its picturesque
charm, and many of the buildings reflect the city's overseas
links. An attraction such as the Landward Gate of the city's
18th century walls still stands. The Cadiz Spain hotels
tourist information brochures indicate that the city’s
Cathedral and churches of Santa Cruz and San Felipe Neri are
worth a visit and are famous throughout Spain.
Cadiz in Spain is all about a relaxed atmosphere. It is not
at all intimidating as most port towns are prone to be. Spain
Cadiz is home to Cadiz Carnival which is perhaps the liveliest
carnival celebration in Spain. An interesting fact about old
Cadiz is its narrow cobbled streets opening onto small squares.
The old town holds interest as a visitor on a walk passes
through a number of beautiful parks from where one gets sweeping
views of the bay. Even at night the city projects a relaxed
and easy going atmosphere without being intimidating. Perhaps,
the presence of the sea contributes to this feeling. Cadiz
Spain has always been known as a town with a tradition
of liberalism and tolerance. The sea walls and the waterside
walkways are strikingly beautiful attractions and hold promise
as wonderful places where one can stroll for sunrise and sunset.
