Beaches, history and wine

El Puerto de Santa María is a fishing town that has ancestral origins with civilizations as the Phoenician. With a distinguished history, its business had its splendor from the XVII century with the manufacture and export of wines, the name of Sherry, with winemaking firms as the emblematic Osborne. The environment is surrounded by 16 km of beaches of fine, soft sand washed by the waters of the Bay of Cadiz, as well as by a blanket of pine forest collected in the memoir “The Lost Grove” by one of the most prominent sons of the city, the famous poet Rafael Alberti.

 

Cadiz gastronomy is rich in fresh fish and sherry

 

The tasty cuisine of seafood and fresh fish offered by inshore boats, and the old recipes that are kept updated, are most irrigated by well-known wines of the land like Fino or Oloroso. Flamenco, majestic monuments such as the Basilica Our Lady of Miracles, the marina Puerto Sherry, located a few meters from our hotel, or the Castle of San Marcos promoted by King Sabio Alfonso X, are essential places that travellers can not miss.
