Founded by the Phoenicians from the city of Tiro around 1,100 BC, it is the oldest city in the West. According to mythology, it was Hercules who founded Gadir, which means "closed site".

In the V century BC, the Carthaginians transform Cadiz into the power center of their actions on the Peninsula. The Carthaginian leaders, Amilcar Barca, Asdrubal and Hannibal, settle in Gades during the Phoenician Wars.

In the year 206 BC, the treaty with Rome is signed, according to which Gades becomes a federate ally. In 46 BC, Rome gives Cadiz the title of "Augusta Urbs Julia Gaditanae", granting the people from Cadiz Roman citizenship.
