Walking in Cadiz

All the research I did indicated that it would be easy to walk around Cadiz from port where the Braemar would dock. There is also a Hop on, hop off bus. So, I opted for a quick trip around Cadiz to get my bearings, then it was time for a nice walk next to the beaches and through parks. Cadiz is a great place to walk and see some interesting architecture, beautiful beaches and gardens and old forts. Perfect for pictures!

Before leaving ship, I got top see a submarine being towed out of the port, then heading out to sea.

There are several parks that run along the Atlantic Ocean. Here are somize of my favourite areas.

There was an interesting area with a waterfall, dinosaurs and ducks …

and this beautiful tree that provided shade to a memorial for Jose Marti — the Cuban poet and freedom fighter.

I did mention beaches, right? One very nice one is located between two forts.

 

One of the fortresses is a star-shaped fort named Santa Catalina.

From this beach, it is an easy walk to the main plaza and other sites such as churches and monuments.

Cadiz is a beautiful city — very easy to get around and friendly people. I was sad to leave.
