The Mediterranean essence accompanies you from Andalusia to Catalonia

Although it is bathed by the waters of the Atlantic, Cadiz is first and foremost an Andalusian city full of Mediterranean customs. Of course, the fact that it has always been a key trading port between Europe and Latin America has given the town a fascinating Caribbean air, which is especially noticeable in the Cathedral of Santa Cruz. Likewise, other key pieces of tourism in Cadiz are the Tavira Tower, the Plaza de las Flores and the Pópulo neighbourhood.

The sixth day of this cruise From the Cantabrian to the Mediterranean involves a visit to the Autonomous City of Ceuta, located in a strategic North African enclave. Because of this, Ceuta has been in the sights of several civilizations, and many of the ones that occupied this space left it with important military architecture. The Royal Walls and the Plaza de Armas are especially notable fortifications.

"Barcelona, ​​a cultural fantasy that comes to life"

Finally, this fantastic Pullmantur cruise comes to an end in Barcelona, ​​the capital of Spanish modernism. A visit to Barcelona requires a review of the most impressive examples of this type of architecture, such as the Sagrada Familia Basilica, the Casa Batlló or the Pedrera, and other attractions like the Plaza de Catalunya, Las Ramblas or The Olympic Ring.
