Cadiz on the Atlantic coast, is almost entirely surrounded by water. It is one of the oldest European cities, again with Moorish influence but with more of a Spanish feel. There are several castles and defences as well as the typical churches, cathedral and city walls. It is interesting hearing another view of familiar British history, during Elizabeth I reign, Sir Frances Drake raided Cadiz and the ships of the Spanish Armada sailed from here. A pleasant day browsing the narrow streets, squares and along the sea front.
