Destination information - TRYP Cádiz La Caleta

The province of Cadiz is located near the estuary of the River Guadalete and is immersed in the natural park of the Bay of Cadiz. Cadiz is known for its long and influential history as it is one of the oldest cities in Western Europe and has archaeological remains dating back 3,100 years. It is also known for its importance in historical events such as the Punic Wars, the discovery and conquest of America, as well as the establishment of the liberal regime in Spain with its first constitution “La Pepa”. Proof of this is that the city is home to numerous squares, gardens and churches with reference to these events.

ART AND CULTURE

The passage of the different cultures in Cadiz is manifested in:

The cathedral, with its golden dome of the colonial era visible from the sea, next to the Roman Theatre and the Barrio del Populo, one of the city’s oldest districts with the medieval gateways. In this district you can also visit the Roman Theatre and the church of Santa Cruz, called the Old Cathedral, and the Admiral’s House whose façade will delight you. Near the Barrio de Santa Maria is the Royal Prison which today is an exhibition hall.

Walking through the streets and squares of the old quarter will take you back to the golden era of the city when trade was established with America. Proof of this is the palace-houses with their watchtowers, squares, gardens and churches.

At the Museum of Cadiz, located in Plaza de Mina, you can see the Phoenician sarcophagi and an extensive art gallery.

You cannot miss visiting the Oratory of San Felipe Neri where the first constitution, known as “La Pepa”, was signed in 1812 and its commemorative monument in Plaza de España

For several weeks there is a competition at the Teatro Falla for the different associations: choirs, chirigotas, troupes, quartets all compete to be in the grand final which is held on the first Friday of carnival.
