Kotinoussa Park in Cádiz spans an area of 9,985 m² and was inaugurated in 2003. It derives its name from one of the three islands of the Phoenician “Gadeiras Archipelago”: Erytheia, Kotinoussa, and Antipolis (Isla de León). Erytheia was the northernmost island, stretching from the current Castle of San Sebastián to the Island of Sancti Petri, while Kotinoussa Island was situated between them.
This park is located on the grounds of the former Varela Military Barracks, which encompassed the Phoenician, Punic, and Roman necropolises. Building upon this historical background, the park offers an additional attraction through the cultural and educational exhibition of various archaeological artifacts discovered during excavations for the San José parking lot and the houses on Arcángel San Miguel.
The aim is to commemorate and promote the historical significance of the Cadiz necropolis. Thus, the park serves as an archaeological museum, providing a historical journey through the funerary arts of the earliest civilizations that inhabited Cádiz.
The park’s design features winding pathways that invite visitors to stroll and find places to rest, enhancing the overall experience.
