Cadiz - Costa De la Luz -Spain

Widely known for Flamenco music, dance, bull-fights, fantastic beaches and lots of sunshine, Spain has to offer much more than that. It is - and has been for thousands of years - one of the cultural centres of Europe. It has beautiful cities and towns, offering really old monuments as well as futuristic architecture. Its various regions are all different one to each other, geographically, climatically and even in personality.

The Costa de la Luz (Coast of light) is the western part of the Andalucía coastline that faces out to the Atlantic. The sand is finer and a more golden colour than the neighbouring Costa del Sol. The typical beaches here are more expansive and probably backed by sand dunes and pine trees. This part of the coast has not seen the high-rise hotel development of other areas.

Cádiz is the oldest inhabited city in the Western world, founded in 1100 B.C. The history of Cádiz has left examples of defensive constructions across the province on the one hand due to the numerous attacks suffered in olden times and on the other hand due to its geographical location.

This modern, bustling Atlantic port is a kind of Spanish Marseille, a melting pot of Americans, Africans, and Europeans who are docking or passing through. The old quarter teems with local characters, little dives, and seaport alleys. But despite its thriving life Take advantage of your stay in Cádiz, visiting the Natural Parks, Reservoirs and Lagoons, Urban Parks and Parks on the outskirts of towns.
