The province of Cadiz is the southernmost of the Iberian Peninsula. Cadiz has an ancient history. The Tarshish and Phoenicians visited these lands more than three thousand years ago. It was here that they built the old Gadir (Cadiz) around 1,100 B.C., making it the oldest capital in the West. The Romans and the Visigoths also left their marks here. After 711, it was ruled by the Muslims until Alfonso X. The Wise reconquered it in the middle of the 13th century and it became part of the Kingdom of Castilla.
