Cadiz is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Western Europe, with archaeological remains dating back 3100 years. Founded by the Phoenicians, it was occupied by different groups, including the Carthaginians, Visigoths, Romans and Arabs. Since the 18th century, Cadiz has become a principal home port of the Spanish Navy. The carnival of Cadiz is extremely popular, lasting 11 days. This city definitely worth a visit!
