Uncovering authentic local finds and having experiences that make you feel like you’ve really connected with a place are important elements in ensuring an extraordinary vacation. We’re taking advantage of our partnership with Travel + Leisure to get their editors’ recommendations and insider tips on the places you will want to visit. Here are their picks for just one of the 150 destinations they covered.
Gran Teatro Falla
Built from 1884 to 1905, the Moorish-style theater hosts a diverse list of performances that range from classical opera and concerts to children's shows and flamenco. Guided tours take visitors backstage and behind the scenes for a fascinating glimpse at a cultural institution.
Local fishermen and farmers display their wares at the bustling main market, one of the liveliest places in this seaside port. The stalls practically heave with ripe fruits, cheeses, nuts, herbs, snails, and the garnet-red tuna so highly prized by the Japanese.
Museo de Cádiz
Housed in a former Franciscan convent and a neighboring modern structure, the museum's antiquities collection showcases an anthropomorphic pair of Phoenician sarcophagi. More recent works include 19th-century puppets, folk art, and masterpieces by the 17th-century painter Francisco de Zurbarán.
