Just to wander around and explore is a great way to spend time in old Cadiz. Plenty of tiny alleys, small squares, churches and interesting building facades. 13th century El Populo at it's heart with entrance arches is a great place to begin. Plenty of...More

Cadiz is an easy city in which to wander about at will. It’s relatively compact, and one can easily circumnavigate the perimeter of the old town in a morning or afternoon. Many of its streets meander narrowly up, down and around – and one will...More

Cadiz's old town, like the other Spanish cities, is full of narrow streets and alleys. Walking around the labyrinth-like city is a pleasurable experience.
