I hadn't actually heard of Cadiz before Robs Mum and Dad told us about it. Once I started looking in to booking my husbands birthday trip to Jerez it was clear that we should put aside some time to visit for the day.
Cadiz is a land full of history and about a 30 minute train ride out of Jerez. It's an ancient port city built on a strip of land surrounded by the sea and the home of the Spanish Navy.
It's certainly a magical place and there's a large collection of over 100 watch towers, churchs, cathedral, markets and beaches to choose from all set around the main historic town.
We visited on Tuesday, we read up on Tripadvisor/ forums and decided we would walk around the town and see the cathedral, port and mooch around the city and not spend too much time in Cadiz as we were in Jerez for Jerez, these are our highlights.
We visited Cadiz for the day, just 25 minutes on the train from Jerez. Tickets are roughly €5 euro each way and purchased these from the machine inside the train station.
Mercardo Central- the street markets are buzzing with locals buying their fish and produce. Some very interesting looking creatures! This is one of the best fish markets in Europe, also selling specialist coffees, bread and cakes. In the day time there are great food stalls on the outer edges of the market. Some of which will cook whatever fish/shellfish you have brought at the market. It's a great place for sightseeing and buying, full of atmosphere.
