Cadiz stands on a peninsula jutting out into a bay which is a small slice of land, and is almost entirely surrounded by water. The landscape has a lot of natural beauty, and there is plenty to see and do. Because of its long history, some areas of the city are very old and these sections differ drastically from the newer more modern areas; where the older neighborhoods have narrow, winding streets, the newer areas have wide avenues with modern buildings. Unlike most other ports of its size it seems immediately relaxed and easy going, not at all threatening, even at night. The city has a great tradition of liberalism and tolerance making it a very welcoming destination.
