In 2017, it was Antequera, with its Dolmens just being appointed UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 2018, it was Seville. And in 2019, it is Cadiz. Looks like the prestigious New York Times cannot get enough of Andalusia.
The city and province of Cadiz have been chosen as one of the 52 places to go in 2019, and here at Meridional Events we couldn’t be happier. The highlights of the trip, according to the New York Times, include the awakening of the new cuisine happening at the centre of Cadiz, with nearby Aponiente restaurant by chef Angel Leon being a complete revolution in terms of ingredients, using plankton for the very first time for human consumption.
Food is not the only highlighted item on the article, but also Jerez de la Frontera and its wonderful bodegas or wine cellars. A visit to some of Jerez most well-known cellars is a must while in the city. The atmosphere and work ethic have remained the same since the 18th century, when most of the cellars were founded.
And last, but not least, the third recommendation goes to Vejer de la Frontera, a picturesque town located near the Atlantic coast and home to NMAC Foundation, a non-profit institution for contemporary art. The Foundation invites international artists to create works that blend and tune in with the landscape.
