In history, the city played a paramount role when in 1810 during the French occupation led by Napoleon, San Fernando and Cádiz were the only parts of Spain which did not surrender to the French.
The Cortes Generales met in the Comedy Theatre (nowadays known as the Real Teatro de las Cortes) and started the preparation for the first liberal constitution of Spain, which was approved in the neighbouring city of Cádiz in 1812.
Flamenco singer Camarón de la Isla was born in San Fernando.
It holds the Panteón de Marinos Ilustres.
