After leaving Gibraltar, I headed back north to Sevilla with a quick stop on the way in Cadiz. Cadiz is the oldest, continuously-inhabited city in Spain (estimated at 1100 BC). Geographically, it reminded me of a cross between Cancun and Key West. Cancun because it's on a really narrow strip of land and Key West because of the high-density, fortress-style, "island" feel to the center of the town.

I don't really have much to say about the town as I only spent about two hours there walking around and taking some photos. I probably wouldn't have written about it but I've got a couple of decent photos to share. This one's on the water front with some fishing boats and a view of some of the fortifications that are found around the island:

Here's a shot of the coastline at sunset: (The large building with the domes is the cathedral.)

And here's a closer-up shot with some surfers in the foreground:
