Natural Park of Cadiz Bay

Reviewed By griffpasty - Rochdale, United Kingdom

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Cadiz and the bay. The city was so interesting and buzzing.. In the tranquil bay there was a series of lagoons where you can watch masses of flamingos in flight and numerous wading birds. A place where bird watchers could spend their full holiday.

Reviewed By PhilDave136 - London, United Kingdom

Beautiful church, welcoming atmosphere and a very friendly congregation.
Been there fo many Sunday masses. One particular priest there has an amazing singing voice who gets the entire congregation singing which makes the mass a very "enjoyable" experience. I would highly recommend a Sunday morning visit if you feel you need an "uplift"

A very worth (free) attraction, with leaflets in multiple languages to explain the exhibits (which are otherwise all in Spanish). Had never really appreciated how sea salt was harvested before! No free wine sampling (when we visited anyway).
