Cádiz is a very walk-able city (although the cobblestones can be difficult for wheelchairs, walkers, or canes) and you can just wander around discovering the interesting historic buildings, archways/gates, plazas, and balconies.

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.
