Horseback through the Pines
hrs Estimate Duration
Ride horseback through a serene pine forest in the country and then return to Cadiz for a panoramic drive through the historical downtown, passing many of its landmark attractions.
After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a wonderfully picturesque drive south, following a mostly coastal road to the town of Chiclana de la Frontera. Here, you will find the Royal Center Hipica, an equestrian facility where you will be paired with a horse suited to your riding abilities. Even beginners will be comfortable in the saddle.
Following a brief orientation on how to make the most of the experience, you will ride into the surrounding pine forests. The gentle trail will lead you through the spectacularly scenic and serene countryside at a leisurely pace that will allow you to really take in the natural beauty.
Along the way, the guide will point out the most noteworthy flora and perhaps describe the founding of Chiclana de la Frontera in the early 14th century. You can expect it to be an enlightening, immensely peaceful ride, most of it in the shade of the towering pines.
Upon returning to Cadiz, you will enjoy a panoramic tour of the city, which the Phoenicians founded in the 12th century. You can’t help but notice the Moorish influence in the architecture, especially in the Old Quarter. Highlights include the Neoclassical-style Cadiz Cathedral, an abundance of stately 18th-century mansions and the remains of the original walls that once protected the city.
