Our travel guide to San Fernando

San Fernando, surrounded by the Bay of Cadiz Natural Park, is a culinary paradise of great historical importance. Its location, its leisure offer and its beaches make it an interesting starting point for a trip to the province. Thanks to this Travel Guide to San Fernando you can find all the activities and the best travel tips for your trip.

The former Isla de León offers an interesting landscape of marshes, salt evaporation ponds and dunes. The presence of Phoenicians and Romans is attested by the remains preserved in its Historical Museum. In the second half of the 18th century, the city begins to grow vertiginously. Due to its special strategic situation, it acquires great commercial and military importance.

Of special interest to the visitor, we highlight the Marina Observatory, a top-rated scientific centre. The Pantheon of Illustrious Sailors and the Naval Museum give evidence of the importance of the island in this matter.

The marshes and estuaries of the municipality are very rich in mollusks and fish. These constitute an ideal point for bird watching, as well as to practise different active tourism activities.

Main Activities: Cuisine, Active Tourism, Flamenco, Culture.

Cradle of a flamenco genius like Camarón de la Isla, San Fernando stands out for its delicious cuisine. At a multitude of tapas bars in San Fernando you can enjoy its exquisite fish, its bienmesabe (marinated dogfish), cañaíllas (sea snails), bocas de La Isla (cooked fiddler crabs) and shrimp fritters (tortillitas de camarones).
