Cadiz, capital city of the province of the same name, has a population of approximately 157,000 inhabitants. It is almost entirely surrounded by water, except for a narrow strip of land which connects the city to another island.
Cadiz is strategically situated between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and the “Costa de la Luz” (in the province of Cádiz) contains more than 200 kilometers of amazing beaches of fine, golden sand.
The eighteenth century were years of splendour for the city and have given present-day Cádiz one of the most well preserved city centre in the whole of Spain, with its beautiful squares, narrow streets, small palaces, the Roman amphitheatre and the remains of the medieval city walls.
