Andalucia November 2000
Don Porter


Cadiz has a claim to being the oldest city in Europe. It was founded sometime around 1100 BCE by the Phoenicians. We saw excavations under way next to the cathedral, exposing some Phoenician stonework apparently from 800 BCE. Cadiz is almost an island - a narrow spit of land now covered with more modern and industrial construction connects the old city to the mainland.
