As one of the eight communities that make up Andalusia, Cadiz is a port town in south west Spain. One of the oldest cities in the whole of Spain, Cadiz is positioned on a narrow slice of land just off the coast. Despite its unusual location, it is a fairly typical Andalusian city, with well-preserved architecture, beautiful views of the sea and incredible winding streets just waiting to be explored. Feeling comfortable in this safe and friendly city won't be difficult for any new expatriate looking to make a living in Cadiz, but it could be good to check a few of the main tourist attractions to get a feel for the city. Le Plaza de Topete, for example, is a hot-spot with the locals, and the Cathedral de Cadiz is a sight you'll never forget.
