Seville (Cádiz), Spain
At today’s port, you’ll have a rare chance to explore what many considered the gateway to the New World throughout the 15th and 16th centuries. The port of Cádiz offers a wealth of treasures. On an included tour, you’ll follow passageways into elaborate plazas, from the Plaza de San Antonio de Padua and Plaza de España to the Plaza de Mina. Stop at the Torre Tavira, once a lookout for merchants, and marvel at the city’s baroque, gold-domed cathedral. Alternately, explore the colorful city of Seville, where a grand cathedral, Giralda tower and the Alcázar palace were built by the wealth of Spanish kings. Spend free time sipping sherry at a bodega or shopping for local wares.
