Hi!
Seville is called Sevilla in this timetable: http://gospain.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ/Ya&sdn=gospain&cdn=travel&tm=39&gps=62_786_1020_599&f=01&tt=14&bt=0&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.movelia.es/

You can go by the bus from Cadiz to Sevilla according to above-mentioned timetable.

Getting to and from Cadiz to Seville in the time that you have is always going to be difficult. The distance between the two is about 125 kms and by car it would take at least one hour and a half allowing for traffic.
You can go either by bus or by train.
Both stations are withing easy walk of the port docking site.
The bus terminal is run by the local Cadiz province operator called COMES. They have a web site on which you may find some timetables: www.tgcomes.es
Alternatively you may go to the rail station and take a train - there are a few different types. the least expensive and one I recommend is called ANDALUSIA EXPRES which is a normal commuter type train but very comfortable. You can see times and costs on Spanish rail web site at www.renfe.es
If you choose to go by train then you don't need to get off at the last station in Seville namely Santa Justa, but get off at SAN BERNARDO station which is actually in a tunnel underground. This station is within about 20 minutes walk of the main sites in Seville.
If you think that the time taken on travel may not leave you sufficient time to do Seville justice, then consider exploring Cadiz itself and maybe taking a bus or train to Jerez which is where the famous sherry wines emanate.

Yes its possible, but it looks short, Sevilla is a Big Town and the aera very large, many sites and Cadiz is quite far... So you will stay about 4 hours in Sevilla. Of course you can ggo to cathedral and Alcazar....But the town need more time...the target is not so good.

Travel Tips for Tarifa (Cadiz)

The Castle of Guzmán el Bueno

by Beach_dog

The Castle of Guzmán el Bueno built in 960 has been used in many sieges at Tarifa, by both muslim and christians. Originally it was built by Abderramán III to control the routes between Africa and Europe, at its narrowest point.

Water Sports

by keeweechic

Tarifa is a popular destination with windsurfers and surfers who make the most of the wind and waves that it creates. Known as the Wind Capital, because of the fact it blows harder here than elsewhere. Between May and October is the most popular time for windsurfing and many world competitions occur in Tarifa.

On the reverse side of the year, October to May offer the best swells for board surfing, some waves reaching up to 3 metres.

Tarifa is an ancient city, full of contrasts

by venteeocho

Tarifa is an ancient city, full of contrasts, where tradition and modern life live together: a fishing port and water sports such as kitesurf and windsurf; an agricultural town; an old town and a medieval castle with roman ruins; an international city with excellent gastronomy, typical Andalusian soups and a great variety of exotic restaurants.

A Roman road and old baths

by Bwana_Brown

As we turned inland from the coast, the next of Baelo Claudia's attractions that we stumbled upon was their main East-West street, called Decumanus Maximus and shown here looking westward. I thought it was in quite good shape for a street that was 2000 years old - a lot better than some modern ones I've driven on! It runs along the southern edge of the town with the Basilica (2nd photo) standing beside it. This was a two-storey structure from which the law was administered and also part of the 'downtown' area of the community which also featured the main South Square.

Getting lost as we always do on Spanish streets, we walked down Decumanus Maximus until we reached the western outskirts of Baelo Claudia where we came upon the remains of the Thermal Baths (3rd and 4th photos). I'm telling you, these Romans really knew what they were doing - the bit at the back of the 3rd photo was called a 'prefurnium' where the water was heated and the semi-circular bit at the right was where the actual bathing took place! Definitely a tough life in southern Spain in the old days!

Iglesia de San Mateo

by barryg23

The 15th century church, Iglesia de San Mateo, stands at the heart of the old town. Nearby is the busy Calle Sancho IV El Bravo, with all its pubs and restaurants, while south of the church are quieter streets leading to the castle and Mirador El Estrecho.
