El Puerto de Santa María The Essential
This elegant town has remained true to its aristocratic and trading history. It was from here that the caravels of Christopher Columbus set sail on two occasions for America, and where Juan de la Cosa completed his first mappa mundi (1500) showing the New World. With its delicious cuisine and lively nightlife, El Puerto is a perfect example of the Andalucian way of life.
