Night walk through Cádiz

The so-called

Tacita de Plata

because of the silhouette that the city of

Cádiz has,

appeals at any time and in any way.

But if it is a free night walk with our pet next to us, much better.

This proposal covers for an hour and a half, among other points, the

neighborhood of Pópulo

, the church of Santa Cruz (or the old cathedral), the temple with the most history in Cádiz, the promenade with its typical houses, the

Gran Teatro Falla

, with its curious neo-Mudejar architectural style, and the

Caleta beach.
