Cádiz Travel guide
Cádiz : Michelin's recommendations
This fortified peninsula, linked to the mainland by a narrow coastal strip, was the first city in Europe, founded around 1 100 BC by Phoenicians from Tyre. It became prosperous in the 18C as a result of its monopoly on trade with America. Today it is a modern town of 158 000 inhabitants whose charm derives from its rational 19C layout, its colourful tall buildings, straight roads and colonial-style squares adorned with exotic plants.
