Colonial Cadiz | day trip

Only two cities in Spain can be proud of having held the monopoly of all trade with the New World. These were Seville first and later Cadiz. This day trip will allow our guests to learn about these glorious days of booming Transatlantic trade and to see the outstanding footprint they left in Cadiz.

The monopoly of all trade with the Americas was granted by the Spanish Monarchy to the city of Cadiz in the 18th century. This attracted many wealthy merchants from different parts of the world, who based themselves and their business ventures in the city.

Cadiz experienced then some very important changes and quickly became an exclusive cosmopolitan hub for the emerging international bourgeoisie. The city keeps much of the unique colonial charm of those days, also found across the Atlantic in cities such as Havana, San Juan, Cartagena de Indias and Montevideo.
