Best team building activities to do in Cadiz province Spain
If you are a business owner and you are thinking to create unique activities to strengthen the unity of your team then please keep reading this blog. I am going to propose different types of team building activities throughout Cadiz that are great to help your team get to know each other better.
Cadiz has over a third of its surface protected, the highest in Andalusia, while its climate is similar to Canary Islands. In fact, Cadiz and Huelva in “la costa de la luz” are the provinces with the highest amount of sunlight hours of Spain. Despite this, Cadiz also has the rainiest place in Spain, Grazalema natural park, and different geology throughout the province. This climate, geology, and its location at the southernmost point of mainland Europe, creates unique landscapes in Cadiz.
Below I will be giving different cultural, food and nature activities options for your employees. From gorgeous white towns within the list of the most beautiful towns of Spain, to incredible protected natural parks, to visits to olive mill and wineries or even a private Andalusian wine tasting at your rental house or hotel.

It is quite a bit of walking to be able to see everything, but you have to remember that the city was founded by the Phoenicians and that it has a lot of history. In fact, some say that it is the oldest city in western Europe, although others think that Lisbon was first before Cadiz.

Setenil de las Bodegas
Setenil is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in all of Spain! It is such a unique White village because it is actually built within the caves of a canyon. Scientists have found evidence of a large community of prehistoric people in the caves, making Setenil one of the oldest inhabited areas of Spain.
Restaurant: Bar restaurante Domínguez is a local restaurant with traditional dishes from Setenil. It has some Moorish influenced dishes, “migas de Setenil”, meats, rice and more.
Zahara de la Sierra
With its picturesque views and the 13th century castle at the top of the hill, Zahara de la Sierra is another must-visit white town. The views are among the best in Cadiz. If you arrive on a sunny day, the water of the local lake is completely turquoise. In all, it is the perfect village to get away from it all. You can do an olive oil tour just outside of the village.
Restaurant: Bar restaurante La Era is a local restaurant with traditional dishes from the mountain region. They are the same owners as in the bar Josefi, and their food is fabulous for local food with great value.
With steep mountains as a dramatic backdrop and amazing landscapes you have plenty of hiking routes around this white village. Coming from “Arcos de la Frontera”, you will have great views along the route. Curiously, the Natural Park of Grazalema receives the most rain in Spain. So if you come to visit remember to bring an umbrella just in case!
Restaurant: Restaurant Cadiz el Chico is a local restaurant with traditional dishes from the mountains. It focuses on rice, wild game meat, stews, wild mushrooms and more.
While this white town is not within the list of the most beautiful villages in Spain, it has its own charms and you can find it on the way from Setenil de las Bodegas and Zahara de la Sierra. From the castle, which has a small cost to enter, the views are outstanding. The incredible church near the castle of Olvera, and the panoramic views are a must visit if you are nearby.
The castle of Castellar de la Frontera
Castellar is officially considered one of the most beautiful towns of Spain in Cadiz. Mostly, this is because its castle is outstanding. This white town is one of the entrances to the largest cork oak forest in Spain, Los Alcornocales natural park. Castellar de la Frontera has one of the best preserved castles in Europe. It has only one entrance, and the white houses are all still inside of the incredible high walls so it feels like walking in a truly historical place. All streets inside have been well taken care of and are traditionally narrow. .
Restaurant: Restaurante Virgil, is a local restaurant with traditional dishes from the mountains. It focuses on rice, meats, stews, wild mushrooms and more.
Day trip to Tarifa
Tarifa is a coastal white town. It is famous for its sport tourism, such as kite surfing, surfing, cycling, hiking and more. If you go in May-June, I recommend to check when they do their bluefin tuna festival and spend a day trying its bluefin tuna tapas competition. Tarifa is one of the four towns that still use the millennial-old bluefin tuna fishing method, almadraba.
Restaurant: Restaurante la pescadería is a good place to try bluefin tuna, the local fish dishes.
Day trip to Baelo Claudia
Bolonia is also within Tarifa municipality and it has the incredible Roman remains of Baelo Claudia. The Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia are among the best in Spain to see how a Roman city looked like. These ruins are in one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain, within El Estrecho natural park.
Restaurant: Otero restaurant is a really nice restaurant I recommend with great views, sometimes live music and the Roman ruins are just in front.
