Our travel guide to Chipiona

Chipiona is a fishing village that is located very close to the mouth of the Guadalquivir and Doñana. Its beaches, its culinary offer and accommodation make this city one of the favourite summer destinations of the Cadiz coast. Thanks to this Travel Guide to Chipiona you can find all the activities and the best travel tips for your trip.

A fascinating spot

The monumental legacy of the town is a true reflection of its genuine historical evolution, tracing its origins to the Roman Empire. The castle was ordered to be built by Guzmán el Bueno, and was completed by the Ponce de Leóns in the 14th century.

Its most emblematic building is, without a doubt, the Virgen de Regla Sanctuary, which exhales a neo-Gothic breath. Built on an old fortress, today it belongs to the Franciscan order and houses the patron saint of Chipiona. Other buildings of interest are the Church of Nuestra Señora de la O (sixteenth to seventeenth centuries), the Chapel of Cristo de la Misericordia and the Sanatorium of Santa Clara (first maritime sanatorium of Spain).

Its famous lighthouse was rebuilt on the ruins of the ancient Roman lighthouse. Commanded to build by order of Quinto Servilius, it guided the navigators to the Guadalquivir and helped the ships escape from the dangers of the Piedra Salmedina, which caused numerous shipwrecks. It is built on Punta del Perro, separating the beaches of Las Canteras and Regla. Built in 1867 by engineer Jaime Font, it is the highest lighthouse in Spain (69 metres high). The hill on which it is located is a magnificent viewpoint.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, Chipiona is an important summer destination. The promenades of the beaches of Regla and Las Canteras, lively and bustling, are full of terraces on which to sit and enjoy the seaview while tasting the famous local muscatel. Its beaches (Regla, del Camarón / Tres Piedras, Cruz del Mar, Las Canteras, Montijo and La Ballena) have been awarded with the Blue Flags to the Clean Seas of Europe since 1989. They are the perfect setting for water sports, which can also be practised in the modern marina.

You cannot miss its famous Fishing Weirs, which catch the crustaceans and mollusks at low tide, later caught by fishermen.

Main Activities: Beaches, Wine Tourism.
