This morning we had breakfast at our inn and then went for a walk around Arcos de la Frontera to see the sights. De la Frontera is in the name because Arcos was on the border of Muslim and Christian Spain. The town is built on top of a ridge.
After exploring we caught a taxi down to the newer part of town and caught the bus to Cadiz. We walked from the bus station through town to our modern Parador overlooking the Atlantic. The room is amazing. The patio doors open up so if the weather was warmer today the patio could be part of our room!
The weather today is perfect, sunny and warm so we went for another walk from our hotel to the nearby Castillo de Santa Catalina then along the beech and causeway to the Castillo de San Sebastián.
We will be in Cadiz for two nights. Our deal for this Parador includes dinner so we are eating here tonight and tomorrow night.

I won’t be surprised if you see El Cid riding up the beach one evening!
I’ll keep an eye out for him!!
