The capital of the province. Situated on the bay which carries the same name and surrounded by sea. An important Sea port. It is the oldest city in the western world, with more than 3.000 years of history.
Although it was initially founded by the Phoenicians, many other cultures have left the marks of their passage, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths and Arabs. The city is essentially Andalusian, with highly characteristic areas such as “La Viña”, “Santa María” or “El Pópulo” which contrast with the modern constructions of the more recently built quarter. Plants and trees,some of which are over one thousand years old, can be found in its parks and avenues.
