Cádiz may be the oldest inhabited city in the Western world, but have people been buying souvenirs here since those early days? We’re not even going to begin to work that out, but we can say with complete confidence that people are certainly enjoying souvenirs today. You can’t really take seafood home with you, but there’s plenty more mementos on offer.
Okay, you can’t really take flowers home with you either, but the Flower Market in Cádiz is one of our favourite spots in the city. Eternally vibrant in both energy and colour, stop for a chat with a local peddler and pick up some beautiful smelling hues to take home.
You’re in sherry town now, son. A fortified wine made from white grapes, this isn’t your grandma’s sherry, this is something else entirely. Pick up a bottle to sit proudly in the liqueur cabinet back home.
You’re in Andalusia, of course you are going to buy some ceramics. The colourful tiles brighten up everyday life in this admittedly-shining part of the world, and we could all benefit with a little more light back home.
Cádiz is flamenco central, and we can’t recommend a night at the art form enough. The musical way of life really does seep into the everyday in these parts, and picking up a flamenco fan or a dress will ensure that a little bit of that sparkle finds its way into your home. That shouldn’t be taken in a literal sense, obviously, but it’ll be rather lovely nonetheless.
We’re simple folk here at In Your Pocket. If a poster looks like it was designed and printed more than 40 years ago, there is a good chance we are going to thrust our wallet in the direction of the cashier and make a purchase. Cádiz has plenty of old posters dotted around, covering flamenco, bullfighting and a whole lot more.
