Cadiz Cruise Port Guide Info


Located close to the Strait of Gibraltar and only 122km away from the capital of Andalusia, Seville, Cadiz has always enjoyed a privileged geographical position between the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, and the north of Africa. 
Cadiz cruise ship terminal is located in the Port of Cadiz Bay, only a 5-minute walking distance from the city center. It consists of two terminals: the main Cadiz cruise terminal, which is located alongside Alfonso XIII Quay, and the second one located in the Ciudad Pier, only a few minutes walk away from the main terminal. 
The terminals offer a selection of facilities, such as a tourist information center, security scanners, baggage hall, duty-free and souvenir shops, as well as a large parking area that can accommodate a large number of tour buses. There is a taxi rank outside the terminals, and the city center is only a few minutes walking distance from the dock. 

Cadiz is a stunning city offering a wide variety of choices for everyone’s taste. The main city’s highlights are situated within a walking distance from your ship, so the best way to explore the city is on foot. You can start at Plaza de Espana, where you can take some great shots in front of the Monument to the Constitution of 1812, an imposing structure built to commemorate the liberal assembly. The main square, Plaza de San Juan de Dios, is located a 10-minute walk from Plaza de Espana and is dominated by the monumental building of the Town Hall. It is a bustling place packed with cafes, restaurants, shops, and pastry shops where they serve delicious ice cream (kids would be delighted!). 

Cadiz Cathedral is one of the symbols of the city built between the 18th and the 19th century, known for its magnificent Dome covered with golden tiles. The Cathedral bell tower and a museum are open to the public for a fee, and to enjoy gorgeous panoramic views of Cadiz and the Atlantic Ocean, climb up to its towers – the view is spectacular.
While exploring Cadiz, you shouldn’t miss the Castillo de Santa Catalina, the 16th-century fortress nowadays used as an exhibition and event center. 
Cadiz is full of tiny squares, narrow streets, market places, shops, restaurants, tapas bars, and cafes, and you’ll have a wonderful time if you just choose to roam its streets and soak up the city’s vibes.

Playa de la Caleta, or Caleta beach, is a perfect choice for beach lovers – it is also known for its great views of the fortress, and a wide range of beach facilities. Whatever you choose to do, your day in Cadiz will be fulfilled.
