Cádiz is a great place to be! Whether you want to eat, drink, shop, see flamenco, visit a museum or just chill out on the beach, Cadiz has it all. Its lovely to walk the whole circuit of the sea wall early morning passing through particular highlights such as the Parque Genovés and the Alameda Apodaca. Both are stunningly beautiful places with sculpted trees, beautiful flowers and even a waterfall in the Parque! Before lunch, visit the Mercado Central which is centrally located in Calle Libertad, next to the Plaza de la Flores vibrant with flowers. The Mercado is a real experience-incredibly fresh fish, meat and vegetables- fantastic if you can cook them but if not, there are bars that offer to cook the food you buy! Check out some of the stalls surrounding the Mercado. You can buy anything from Salmorejo to Sushi.
If you fancy a bit of culture, you can check out one of the museums or galleries. Try the Museum de Cádiz in Plaza de la Mina or the Museo de la Cortes in Calle Santa Inés commemorating the 1812 Constitution. Nearer to home, you can visit the Centro Cultural Reina Sofia at the top of our street where it joins the Alameda or the Contemporary gallery ECCO round the corner in Paseo de Carlos 111.
Other things to visit include the Cathedral and the Torre Tavira in Calle Marques del Rio Tesoro which hosts a Camera Obscura giving fantastic 360 degree views of Cadiz.
A great range of shops are to be found around Calle Columela and San Francisco for a spot of retail therapy.
You may find spontaneous Flamenco in one of the city's Peñas but it's also worth checking out the city's concert venues-the Teatro Falla or Baluarte de la Candelaria for other events. the most lively & exciting time of year is the famous carnival in February-not to be missed!
The local beach is Playa Caleta which is about 10 minute walk from the apartment which is fantastic. The old walls and castle are great to explore if lying on the beach becomes to arduous..
If you fancy trying a beach a little further away, you can take the bus or even more fun, hire a bike(Urban bike) to Playa Victoria (5km) or Playa Cortadura (6.5 km away) which are both beautiful and have great expanses of golden sands and clear water. You can even catch a catamaran over to El Puerto de Santa Maria which is a lovely way to see both Cádiz and the mainland & so refreshing!
There are no end of great places to eat and drink in Cadiz but near to the apartment head to Plaza Mentidero, Plaza de la Mina, Calle Zorrilla or to a great restaurant on the Alameda, Balandro.

About Jo Patton
We are a couple who love Spain-the people, the culture, the food, the wine and of course the weather! Our search for an apartment in a Spain has taken us all over, to many beautiful places. Each one has something great to offer but in choosing Cadiz, I think we've found it all. We are both musicians who travel a lot internationally playing concerts. In this apartment, in this city we feel we have really found a place to not just get away from it all but a place that will stimulate, inspire and stay with you. Try it and see!

Why Jo Patton chose Old Town
Our apartment is quite small but has a great feeling to it. It has lots of natural light and is lovely and bright which is really important to us. When we bought it, it was reformed but had nothing in it and with the help of our fantastic interior designer, we have designed the whole apartment to emphasize the light to provide a really comfortable place to be with all the modern comforts of your own home. Although the apartment is located in a traditional Gaditano street, it was this situation that really made the decision for us. It is in the best area of Cadiz's Old Town and the view from even the little Juliet balconies in the lounge promises something special. Within a minute’s walk from the apartment, you can be by the sea, to one of the most beautiful and romantic spots imaginable. Two minutes walk the other way, you can be in a great little bar enjoying a glass of wine and a tapa. For us, Cadiz has it all.
What makes this Apartment unique
We fell in love with Cádiz & our little apartment. Each time we visit we get to know each other a little better. The character of the city is so friendly, relaxed and sunny and it has such a great climate because it is surrounded by the sea which creates a really welcome breeze. The architecture is beautiful and there is a real pride in the city and significant investment from the city to ensure it retains this character. It is well located to explore the greater region and has great public transport links including a bus and train station. Jerez is only 30 minutes away and offers you the real chance to explore the authentic home of Sherry. Take a guided tour, learn all about how it's made, enjoy some tapas and take the train home...The Costa de la Luz is really fantastic laying claim to some of the most incredible beaches in a Spain. If you have a car, explore some of the Pueblos Blancos for a really authentic Spanish village experience. In Cádiz, you are only 1hour and 40 minutes away from Seville by train which is definitely worth a visit. It can be unbelievably hot in the summer but is truly the capital of Andalucia. The natural breeze, temperature & space of Cádiz provide a real welcome on your return.
