This beautifully furbished one-bedroom apartment is part of an 18th century building, which was totally restored in 2008. It has 65 square metres at its disposal, with a combined living room and dining room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe; all of which are fully furnished. All the rooms have windows to the outside, which provide a lot of light. It is equipped with central heating, Wi-Fi, and space to store bicycles. It also has a night-time garage space 100 metres away, which can be used from 21:00 to 10:00 during the week; and 24 hours on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays.
The surrounding area
The apartment is located in the historically famous Plaza de España square, right in the centre of the city. It has views of the imposing Monument to the Constitution of 1812 and of the beautiful Palacio de la Aduana, an old customs building which is now used by the local government. The apartment is conveniently located, both for exploring the city, with many museums and monuments close by, and for visiting other places. The bus and train stations are only a short walk away, which offer quick and easy transport to other local places of interest. There are plenty of taxi ranks nearby, too. Finally, the popular local beach La Caleta is only 1.5 km away.
Although Cadiz is mostly known for its famous carnival, perhaps the most attractive thing about the city is that it is a relaxing and peaceful place to visit. From its enchanting little café bars to its busy seafood markets, it has plenty of hidden treasures. Just walking round the narrow little streets of the old part of town is a delight for any visitor.
The city also boasts some magnificent beaches and wonderful views of the sea. There are bustling bars, interesting museums and a lively night-life which all help Cadiz feel like a modern city, while still holding onto the charm of a small town.
The Carnaval de Cadiz is one of the most important cultural events on the local calendar.
The province of Cadiz
Cadiz has a rich historical, cultural and artistic heritage. The province boasts over 30 castles and fortifications. You can see the famous cave paintings at the Tajo de las Figuras at Benalup-Casas Viejas; or the Roman ruins of Carteia in San Roque and Baelo Claudia in Tarifa. You can admire paintings by artists such as El Greco, Murillo, Zurbarán and Goya, or wonder at the architectural beauty of La Cartuja monastery in Jerez or the Cathedral in Cadiz.
This area is also the cradle for artists such as the composer Manuel de Falla, the poet Rafael Alberti, the writer José Caballero Bonald, the famous guitarist Paco de Lucía and the singer Camarón de la Isla. These people have given this area a cultural legacy that has transcended many boundaries.
Steeped in such history, the area also provides many tourist routes to explore, such as the ‘Bética-Romana’, the ‘Almoravids and Almohads’, the ‘Americas’, and the ‘Constitution of 1812’.
The province is also a legendary place in the world of flamenco. This area is the birthplace of many singer-songwriters, dancers and guitarists who have made their art form universal today. You can enjoy flamenco at the local ferias or festivals, listen to the famous saeta sung in Holy Week, or hear the villancicos sung at the zambomba Christmas parties at the local clubs on the famous tablaos stages.
