Cadiz – Home to some of Spain’s finest golf and gastronomy
Cadiz is the southernmost province on the Iberian Peninsula and is only 14km from Africa. It borders the provinces of Seville and Huelva in the north, the province of Malaga to the east, the Atlantic Ocean in the southeast, the Mediterranean Sea in the southwest, and the Strait of Gibraltar and the British colony of Gibraltar in the south.
Rich in history the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans have all held sway in this land with each leaving behind a little of their presence with their departure. Christopher Columbus sailed from here 3 times and returned with strange tales from the New World and for a short spell it was even made the capital of the nation after the signing of the first Spanish Constitution in 1812.
Physically it is 260 kilometers of Atlantic coastline featuring long beaches with fine sand, many of them undeveloped and not excessively visited by tourists.

“Many, many, thanks for your help throughout the last year. You delivered an unforgettable experience for us” James
The delicious gastronomy of Cadiz is a compilation of Andalusia’s most appetizing dishes. The produce of the mountains and the sea, accompanied by outstanding wines, will transform any visit into a delicious experience. There is a wide range of fish and shellfish, including the local langoustines from Sanlúcar from which they take their name, the bienmesabe (fried marinated dogfish), the sea bream à la roteña, the gilthead sea bream baked in salt, clams with noodles, tiny shrimp omelets, and numerous other dishes which are better to try than to describe.
In the mountain area the local fare includes game casseroles (venison, wild boar, rabbit, partridge…), ajo caliente (garlic and pepper soup), Grazalema soup, kidneys with sherry, baby chorizos from El Bosque, pork loin in lard.
The pastries and sweets, infused with the region’s Arab heritage, feature unique products such as the typical tortas from Chiclana, alfajores and Christmas sweets from Medina, tocinillos de cielo from Jerez, and amarguillos from Grazalema.
Your stay in Cadiz would not be complete without a visit to one or more of the famous Jerez Bodegas, the home of the finest Sherries in Spain.
