Cádiz is the second largest city in the Andalusian province which also has the same name, behind Jerez de la Frontera. Despite being a provincial capital, it is a small city with about 120,000 inhabitants. Its beaches, climate and immense amount of tourist attractions make visiting it an experience for your senses.
Cádiz is in the vicinity of the Natural Park of the Bay of Cádiz, made up of several municipalities of the province. Its proximity to other renowned Andalusian cities, such as Seville, makes it a strategic place to receive tourists who want to travel to southern Spain.
The base of the economy of this city is the tourist sector. Keep in mind that the number of beaches and the historical heritage of the city make it an option to spend a few days on vacation. In addition, trade is another of the sectors that enhance the economy of this capital. The port and its shipyards allow Cádiz to function as a very important connection to the south of the country.
The history of the city could not be understood without talking about the most important events that have transpired in its streets. For example, the first liberal constitution, of 1812, better known as "La Pepa", was signed in the city.
You can not ignore the gastronomic greatness proposed by the Bay of Cádiz to its visitors. The basis of its cuisine are quality seafood and fish. Its fishing port turns it into a city of sea, with top notch maritime products. Something crucial is to taste Almadraba tuna, fish from age-old techniques. And, of course, the wine from Jerez will be the best option to water down the succulent dishes that are cooked in the area.
It could be said that the main problem encountered by tourists when visiting Cádiz is the unfortunate situation of parking on the street. It should be noted that it is one of the Spanish cities where it is most complicated to park your vehicle. Being a small district, the loading and unloading areas, containers and terraces cover many streets, complicating parking.
In addition, throughout the old city centre parking is regulated by the famous blue zone. This area requires the user to pay the corresponding parking fees, limiting the parking time to two hours’ maximum. After two hours it is possible to replace the ticket for two more hours, but if you don´t have the corresponding ticket or exceed the parking time, fines are guaranteed.
The schedules of the blue zone in Cádiz are from Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and in the afternoon from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. On Saturdays you only have to pay a ticket in the morning. And on Sundays and holidays, parking is free. But, watch out! You have to read the conditions of the parking lot in blue zone well before parking the vehicle, because they can vary depending on the area. For example, on the Paseo Marítimo de Cádiz, it is compulsory to pay for the blue zone from Monday to Sunday throughout the summer.
