History of Cadiz
Prehistory and Ancient Age
Cadiz is a city with more than 3,000 years of history. Its foundation is due to the Phoenicians with the name of Gadir. It is believed to be the oldest city in the Western world.
Like most Greek and Phoenician cities, Cadiz was Romanized after the arrival of the Phoenicians and then changed its name to Gades. At that time Gades would reach a great height, and was even connected to Rome through the Via Augusta, but with the fall of the Roman Empire Cadiz fell into a period of decline and abandonment.
Cadiz in the Middle Ages with the conquest of the Muslims is now called Qadis. Moreover, during this period the decline that has been dragging on since the third century continues. Later it would be reconquered by Alfonso X The Wise in the thirteenth century, and repopulated with people brought from Cantabria.
Cadiz in the Modern Age
With the discovery of America comes again a time of splendor for Cadiz. Because it would obtain the privilege of the commercial monopoly with the Americas.
During the following centuries, Cadiz lived different naval confrontations. As in 1596 when it was attacked and sacked by the English and the Dutch. And also in 1625 or 1656 when Oliver Cromwell ruled England.
Two facts mark the destiny of Cadiz and above all of Spain in the 19th century:
- First of all, the Battle of Trafalgar in which the Spanish Empire was defeated by the English on the coast of Barbate.
- And on the other hand, the invasion of Napoleon’s troops. But Cadiz is the only point that resisted the invasion. That is why it became for a while the capital of Spain and where the First Spanish Constitution was written in 1812, La Pepa.
Later in Cadiz there was another series of historical events such as the siege in 1823 of the city by the Hundred Thousand Sons of Saint Louis. The Liberal Revolution that would give rise to the Constitution of 1869 and the proclamation of Cadiz as an independent canton of Spain during the First Republic. However, the loss of the colonies made it lose importance. And in the 20th century it suffered the explosion of a powder keg that destroyed a large part of the city.
But today, Cadiz is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and is very worthwhile to visit and learn about its history.
