Our cruise ship Balmoral, part of the Fred Olsen fleet, sailed into Cadiz on 25th November. We were on our way back to the UK after a cruise to Madeira and the Canaries.

We were up early for breakfast and off the ship just after 9am. We had a good walk through Cadiz city centre from the port to Playa La Caleta.

There were super views of the Castle of San Sebastian built in 1706, at the end of a long causeway and also the Castle of Santa Catalina built in 1598.

We walked along the promenade at Playa La Caleta and spent a pleasant time in Genoves Park. Then we continued along the sea front via Calle Honduras then cut through the city via the Central market to the Cathedral. The Cathedral visit was very enjoyable but the highlight was the walk up the bell tower with fantastic views.

Cadiz is a great place to visit being one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Western Europe. The older part of the city consists of narrow winding streets connecting to large plazas.
