Cadiz stands on a peninsula jutting out into a bay and is almost entirely surrounded by water. Named Gadir by the Phoencians, who founded their trading post in 1100 BC, it was later controlled by the Carthaginians until it became a thriving Roman port. It sank into oblivion under the Visigoths and Moors but attained great splendor in the early 16th century as a launching point for the journey to the newly discovered lands of America.
Some of the city´s 18th-century walls still stand, such as the Landward Gate. The old, central quarter of Cadiz is famous for its picturesque charm, and many of the buildings reflect the city´s overseas links. Worth a visit are the city´s Cathedral and churches of Santa Cruz and San Felipe Neri, which is famous throughout Spain as the place where, in defiance of Napoleon´s siege, the provisional government was set up with its own liberal Constitution.
