Coastal route

The province of Cadiz has more than 260 km of beaches characterised by their fine golden sand and spectacular, transparent waters. Its beaches, together with its magnificent weather, its millenary history and its traditions, make the province a very desirable place as a holiday destination.
As natural landscapes, we recommend the cliffs and coves of Conil and Caños de Meca, as well as the wild and unspoilt beaches of Bolonia, where the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia lie.

The province of Cádiz has always been subject to invasions from other cultures due to its location between two continents. For its continuous surveillance, different castles, towers, fortresses and fortresses were built. The Route of the Castles of Cadiz includes the following visits:
  • Castle of Santiago, of Gothic style, located in Sanlúcar de Barrameda

Wine Route

The wine route will allow us to discover those cities such as Jerez that have given world fame to the wine of this land. We will visit a series of unique tourist attractions: extensive vineyards, wineries and monuments of historical and artistic interest. We will start the route in Chiclana de la Frontera and then head to El Puerto de Santa María. We will continue through Rota, Chipiona, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and Trebujena and we will finish in Jerez de la Frontera.

Bull route

The route of the bull allows you to contemplate the different breeding farms of fighting bulls, as well as to observe the fighting bull in its natural environment. When in the 18th century the spectacle of bullfighting became a professional activity, bull breeding was obliged to undergo a parallel evolution. Cadiz was an undisputed pioneer in this evolution. Starting in Jerez de la Frontera, this route passes through San José del Valle, Paterna de Rivera, Medina Sidonia, Alcalá de los Gazules, Benalup, Los Barrios, Castellar de la Frontera, Jimena de la Frontera, San Roque, Algeciras and Tarifa.
