The city was founded on the mouth of the Guadalquivir, surrounding the old lighthouse.

This is why Chipiona was known as “Turis Scipionis” during the Roman times.

The arrival of warm river water from the Andalusian countryside, along with a limited sea depth, creates a true microclimate: the best climate of Western Europe.

Chipiona is known for its flower crops, especially that of carnation, during the whole year.

The Atlantic Ocean has an incredibly strong toning effect thanks to the ocean’s high content in iodine.

The sea port and the marina determine the atmosphere of the place.

You can make a lovely walk over the “Paseo Marítimo” looking out over the corrals and the natural park of Doñana. Along the promenade, there are several places to enjoy lunch or dinner with your feet in the ocean – literally – like “Los Corrales” or “Las Canteras.”

Be sure to taste the “Vino de Moscatel Dorado” of “Bodegas de César Florido” in one of the many wine and tapa-bars near the local castle, such as “Bar El Castillito.”

You can visit a permanent exhibition in the old castle to learn more about the rich colonial past of “Cádiz y las Américas.”

A stone’s throw away lays the golf project of “La Ballena,” near the beautiful beach of “Las Tres Piedras.”

From Chipiona, you can easily reach Sanlúcar de Barrameda too (7 km – 4.5 miles).
