Cadiz



Cadiz, the sea, its people, its bay, its history and its lust for life. The province of Cadiz is very diverse, with regions that are worthy of visiting, from the Jerez countryside to the towns in Campo de Gibraltar, a tour through the white villages stopping for a rest somewhere along the coast between Tarifa and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

We cannot forget the capital of the province, Cadiz, which guards behind its walls the culture and traditions that make it different, like its people.

It is the southernmost province of Mainland Spain, just 14 kilometres from Africa. Beyond the northern borders of the province lie the provinces of Seville and Huelva, and to the east lies Malaga; to the southwest lies the Atlantic Ocean; to the southeast the Mediterranean, and to the south is the Strait of Gibraltar and the British colony of Gibraltar.


Beaches



The province of Cadiz has 260 km of coastline and great variety in its 138 km of beaches of fine, golden sand and crystal waters. You can choose from untouched beaches, urban beaches with infrastructure, small coves, family beaches, more secluded beaches, some with calm waters and other with strong winds perfect for windsurfing. The whole coastline forms part of the Costa de la Luz.


Doñana National Park



Doñana National Park is a mosaic of ecosystems which play host to a biodiversity that is unique in Europe. The marshlands stand out in particular, which are of extraordinary importance as a crossing, breeding and wintering place for thousands of European and African birds. Unique species in serious danger of extinction live in the Park, such as the Spanish Imperial Eagle and the Iberian lynx. http://reddeparquesnacionales.mma.es/parques/donana/home_parque_donana.htm

Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art



The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art Foundation, in Jerez de la Frontera, is famous throughout the world for its show Cómo Bailan los Caballos Andaluces (How Andalusian Horses Dance), a unique show which displays and summarises, in a seemingly natural way, all the work that this institution has been carrying out since its foundation. http://www.realescuela.org/home.htm
