A postcard from El Puerto de Santa María

Walk with me through the charming city of El Puerto de Santa María. We’ll take in the famous sherry bodegas, explore Christopher Columbus’s link to the city, take a look at the Castillo de San Marco, where Juan de la Cosa famously drew the first map of the world to include The Americas.

Along the way, a few observations on the crumbling charm of Cadiz’s sister city, a stroll through the lively Plaza de España and a stop at an even livelier local sherry bar. To round off, some top tips on what and where to eat, nearby beaches to visit, and what to do when when the Levante wind blows!
