    Superb.

    It is imperative that you get the tour in your own language.

    The information given was extensive and entertaining.

    The guides English was excellent.

    I would recommend visiting here first as you have to book a slot.

    It provides a good view and information so that you can plan your day.

    NOW OPEN as at October 2021 - After a few attempts we finally got to visit Gadir (YACIMIENTO ARQUEOLÓGICO) and it was really worth the wait. Entrance is limited by FREE ticket for which you turn up at the site & wait for the office to open. We got there at 10:30 and got tickets for 10:45, and being the only English speakers in the queue we had a 'private' escorted tour, the girl was so knowledgable and helpful we could have thanked her enough. We did leave a contribution to the site, but this is not required or expected, in fact she had to find somewhere to put the donation.
    The site itself has both Phoenician and later Roman buildings construsted on top of each other witht he walls and outlines being well defined along with salting vats and water systems.
    There is also a video presentation which we were skipped around by our guide so were ahead of the main group of Spanish speakers (so may only be in Spanish) and had the site to ourselves for a while, there is also a video wall in the site showing the development of the city of Cadiz itself.

    In talking to our guide, she advised us of other sites in Cadiz, such as the Museum of the Heritage of Cadiz, which has artifacts from Gadir. So this is planned for our next visit to the city.

    Sadly needs a restoration . However if you can manage to walk up to the bell tower the 360o view is spectacular and that made the entrance cost worthwhile and hopefully put towards restoring this lovely old cathedral.

    This is an excellent local Museum with some stunning finds from Phoenician and Roman times which are well displayed. Surprisingly little about the Islamic period though. There is also some excellent art works but what made this a stand out experience was the touring exhibition of "In wine truth'. This was a series of contemporary and amusing photographs and paintings based on traditional pictures. It was stunning - an excellent and interesting museum

    Wednesday 18th May and we drove over this mighty structure as we drove in and out of the City of Cadiz.

    The bridge is unsurprisingly the largest span bridge in Spain with a length of 540 metres.

    The total length of the Bridge is 3,092 metres of which 1,440 spans the Bay. It transports vehicles across the bay with two lanes in each direction, another lane is reserved for public transport.

    The two towers that support the cables stand at 185 meters (just under 606 feet) high and dominates the skyline around the area. The pattern of the cables are like a massive stringed instrument.

    From the hill in the Battle Park in Chiclana
    46 kilometres twenty-eight and a half miles away, less as the crow flies, it is possible to see the towers and the cables spread out.

    It's construction commenced 2007 and was partially completed in 2015, completely in 2017.

    It was an experience driving across the bridge as it slopes upwards towards the middle section it reaches a hight of 69 metres above the water below.

    Pedestrians are not permitted on the Bridge, so photographs can only be taken while driving over by the passenger. There are fleeting glimpses, through the barrier as to what is going on around and below.

    It worths a visit, given that it's reachable easily, also from the seaside. Just avoid hottest hours, if you can, it can get hard!

    Visited here with my husband and 13 & 7 year old kids. There was a great little bar by the entrance to the beach. Long white beaches with amazing views and a roaring sea, great for surfing bit not for bathing

    Long and relaxing way on the seaside. Quite windy very often, but if you spend more days you will find the perfect time! Enjoy!

    This area gave me the first impression of Cadiz. Very relaxing with water fountains and palm trees that give this place really positive vibes.

    These stunning beaches have it all - wide views of the ocean, long slow rollers for surfing, plenty of space for walking and of course family fun and swimming. Really a cool place to hang out and be...
