Cadiz is surrounded on three sides by the sea. The city is dominated by the gold dome of the Baroque Cathedral Nueva, and there are several historic buildings including the mansions around Plaza San Antonio, the Admiral's House and the Tavira Tower. Classical flamenco singing can be heard in the Santa Maria District, and recently opened to the public is the large Roman theatre discovered following a fire in the 1980s.
Jerez is famous for its cattle and horses, and for flamenco and sherry. The city is very attractive, with a fine cathedral and jacaranda trees edging broad streets and squares. The Alcazar is a Moorish fortress which now contains a park, and the town houses most of the key sherry producers.
The city of Seville on the Guadalquivir River can be reached by river cruise ships. Passengers aboard larger sea-going vessels can visit Seville from the ports of Sanlucar de Barrameda or Cadiz. Dating back 2000 years, its architecture spans Moorish, Mudejar and Gothic periods. Tapas bars and restaurants are spread across this very attractive city, and sights include the magnificent cathedral, the nearby 9th-century Alcazar and gardens, Plaza d'Espana, the Bull Ring, and the Torre del Oro beside the river.
