Bound by the waters of the Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) on three sides, Cadiz is the captial city of the province of the same name and struts out into the Atlantic on a thin slither of land.

The city of Cadiz was originally founded by the Phoenicians around 1104 BC and is possibly the oldest continuously inhabited city in south western Europe. Over the centuries, many rulers have been overthrown by many nations including the Romans, Visigoths, and Moors.

Being situated in a prime position along the Costa de la Luz near the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula in Andalucia, Spain, the city of Cadiz served as a departure point for Christopher Columbus's second and fourth voyages to the New World.

Today the waterfront of Cadiz thankfully lacks the echos of ancient wars and is a peaceful place to spend a vacation relaxing on one of the many beaches or enjoying a beautiful Costa de la Luz sunset and dusk.
