How many days to spend in Cadiz? Planning your time in Cadiz should be one of your first priorities once you have decided that you want to visit this beautiful city.
Bare minimum time in Cadiz
So if you are wondering how many days to spend in Cadiz, here’s the quick answer: one full day.
Because of its location, Cadiz is a very popular one-day trip from Seville. Most people take a medium-speed train either from Seville as it is the fastest and most comfortable option to get to Cadiz (and you can easily purchase your train tickets online). They get to the city early in the morning and leave in the middle of the afternoon.
However, one night in Cadiz, resulting in one full day (or one and a half days) in the city, would be my suggestion of the bare minimum time that you should spend. One day is enough time for you to get to know the main tourist attractions while at the same time having a superficial contact with the city’s lifestyle.
Our ‘Cadiz In One Day’ guidebook is written with this idea in mind, as it allows you to know all the most important places of tourist interest in the city. The key to visiting Cadiz to its fullest in such a short period of time is to organize it in the best possible way.
Explore Cadiz off the beaten path
Cadiz is a low-key, unpretentious city that shines for its wonderful food, huge beaches and historic center that hides a bunch of fascinating little attractions.
Enjoy the views back to Cadiz from the elevated path of the Castillo de San Sebastián. Walk along the promenade of the 2.8 kilometer-long Playa de la Victoria, often rated as Europe’s best urban beach. Visit the beautiful Museo de Cadiz to have a crash course in the city’s history, art and folk traditions, each category set on a different floor of the museum.
But among all, get lost.
And enjoy the delicious local food!
Day trips from Cadiz
With two or three nights, you will have time to see most of the city, as well as being able to see other interesting places near Cadiz, such as Jerez – an elegant, whitewashed city is famous for two things: sherry and horses.
Some charming little towns such as Sanlúcar de Barrameda and its wineries; Arcos de la Frontera, one of Andalusia’s most attractive pueblos blancos (white villages); Medina-Sidonia and its historic center; Vejer de la Frontera, with its intricate streets so typical of the region and Zahara de los Atunes and its delicious tuna gastronomy are also worth visiting. Alternatively, if you like nature and being outdoors why don’t you explore the Parque Nacional de Doñana, one of Spain’s best national parks, or the lesser-known Parque Nacional La Suara?
