Get around[edit]

See[edit]

Many of the pueblos blancos (white villages) are to be found in Cadiz. In particular, Alcala de los Gazules, Grazalema, and Zahara de la Sierra are very attractive and excellent walking centres.

  • Camara Oscura. The Camara Oscura is a periscope type system mounted on the top of an old tower. It projects its image into a horizontally mounted concave dish about 6 foot in diameter. What you see is a real-time projection of the city, people hanging their laundry on rooftop balconies, birds flying by and ships passing each other out on the ocean. Moving pictures!

Do[edit]

Eat[edit]

Drink[edit]

Sanlucar de la Barameda, Jerez de la Frontera, and Puerto de Santa Maria, form what is known as the Sherry Triangle in the Cadiz province. Each city specializes in particular types of sherry; Sanlucar produces Manzanilla which is soft enough to taste like a white wine and Jerez produces Fino which is a very dry sherry.
