The Weather in Cádiz
Yes, Cádiz is in Andalucía, but don't be afraid, it's not as hot as Sevilla or Córdoba in summer because it's by the sea. However, I must admit that from time to time, it's windy, very windy.
And for beaches:
Colegio Mayor Beato Diego
This was the University Residence where I stayed while on my two year of University over there.
It was well situated just in front of the Parque Genoves.
You have no idea how many memories bring me .... each of the windows of this place has a name and a history ....
And from here comes my nickname Carmela.... but I better not tell you why I got that nick name lol... Each of us we had a nickname over here, la peli, koala .... and many more...
Gaditanos and Gaditanas
Gaditano/a is the name to describe someone from Cadiz. You will hear this word mentioned a lot as they are very proud of it and it's meaning. You can find the typical Gaditano/a all over town but especially in La Viña in the heart of the old town.
So what is a typical Gaditano/like:
Think that Cadiz is the best place on Earth,
Don't travel far,
Not animal lovers,
Men from 5-70 dress alike,
Macho ideas but more effeminate body movements (men),
Passionate (in public too),
Live at home until 32,
Unaggressive but verbal,
I'm sorry if I offend any Gaditano/a reading this but it is purely a generalisation and I'm sure you recognise many of the traits I mentioned.
Check out this tree!
At the western end of Cadiz along the Avenida Doctor Gomez Ulla is the Parque Genoves, a quiet tree-lined stretch that includes a small cafe, park benches and a small amusement area for children. I thought this was an interesting tree. VT member Sir_Richard (a native of Cadiz), tells me that it's called a Drago tree and that it is especially typical of the Canary Islands, but I think it looks more like a broccoli tree!!! :-)
Zahara de los atunes
It is part of Barbate, and has incredible beaches and a castle. Famous area by the Almadraba (tuna fishing).
It is getting very famous tourist resort, while a few years ago was still not much known.
