It took five architects 116 years to finish Catedral de Cadiz, and the results are impressive. Starting in the Baroque style, picking up Rococo elements, and finally finishing as a Neoclassical structure, the cathedral features paintings and relics from other cathedrals and monasteries around Spain. Take a tour using one of the provided audio guides, and climb one of the towers of the cathedral for views of the city and the bay. Composer Manuel de Falla and poet and playwright José María Peman rest in the crypt.

This cathedral is small when compared to say Malaga Cathedral but it is still stunning . The tower is worth climbing just to see the views from the top ~ but it is quite a climb! Be prepared for the..... more »
Beautiful cathedral in the heart of old town. The entrance fee is worth the visit, you get to see the beautiful cathedral inside, go to the top of the tower (best part), and the entrance to a museum nearby (we didn’t have time to go). The view from the top of the tower is unbeatable and absolutely stunning. It’s not too hard to get to the top, there are no steps until you get to the end, it is just a ramp that goes up. Not sure on their wheelchair or stroller policy but you can make it almost to the top without steps.
Worship place. Impressive with excellent collection of antiquities. The crypt below is fascinating with lots of tombs. The entry fee (senior/pensioner discount available) to the Cathedral also includes a visit to Torre Poniente where the visitor come close to the huge bells of the Cathedral. The tower also gives an excellent view of Cadiz skyline.
