Spain Quiz

WANT TO PLAY? We challenge you to work out these three quirks about Spain


1 - It is located in the South and commonly known as “La Tacita de Plata”. What city is it?

Correct!“La Tacita de Plata” is the most common nickname for the city of Cadiz. The reason behind the nickname is not clear but it seems to be related to the sun and the intense light in this area. Some say it is because the old town is surrounded by the sea, which appears silver when the sun is shining on it. Others claim it is because of the sun’s reflection on the many white houses in the historic centre.
