Phoenicians, Romans, pirates... vestiges from almost every era of history meet in the beautiful historic centre of Cádiz. Discover one of the oldest cities in the world on this walking tour!

Walking Tour of Cádiz

Meet your guide in the Plaza de San Juan de Dios, an important square in the heart of Cádiz old town, where our walking tour of this charming city's fascinating history will begin.

Firstly, we'll hear curious facts about the origins of the city, whose foundation dates back to Phoenician times, while we admire the façade of the Cádiz City Hall. We'll then stroll over to the Arco de los Blanco, an archway that was part of an ancient Roman wall, allowing us to discover more of the city's history. Not far from here, we'll see one of the main archaeological sites of the Barrio del Pópulo neighbourhood: the famous Roman theatre of Cádiz, an emblematic monument of ancient Gadir.

After walking along the narrow Callejón del Duende and discovering the mysterious legends that surround it, we'll reach the Casa del Almirante, an important landmark in understanding the role that the merchants to the colonies played here. We'll then get to admire one of the old town's most beautiful churches: the Cádiz Cathedral, officially the Cathedral of Santa Cruz.

Our walking tour of Cádiz will come to an end around the Plaza de los Flores, after visiting the nearby Central Market, home to a number of enticing food stalls, including stands selling the famous tuna from the bay of Cádiz.

Spanish Constitution Tour of Cádiz

If you'd like, as well as enjoying this walking tour of the historic centre of Cádiz, you can also discover the important history of the famous Spanish Constitution of 1812 on our Spanish Constitution Tour of Cádiz.

If you book both together - saving money - you can choose to do both tours on the same day or on different days, it's up to you!

The Spanish Constitution Tour of Cádiz begins at 7 pm between 15 June and 15 September, and 5 pm the rest of the year, from the same meeting point in Plaza de San Juan de Dios.
