Its restaurants are second-to-none and Cadiz' status as a major port city affords it a special place in the history of Spain.
I’ve been to Cádiz city six times. Twice with my first wife Jeryl, once with a girlfriend, Maude, and once with Johannes (son of my second wife, Rita) and girlfriend Tiina. Then, a bit of a gap to 2020 when Rita and I spent two nights there – and caught Covid-19! We’ve just visited again with my brother Simon and his wife Marilyn, staying for one night.
