The Cadiz Cathedral took 116 years to complete, with construction starting in 1722 and finishing in 1838. As such it has a number of different architectural elements including neoclassical, Baroque and rococo.
This site is one of the top attractions in Cadiz. Inside, it houses an impressive underground crypt, 16 chapels, and a memorial to the Spanish poet José Maria Peman. There’s also a museum exhibiting exquisite works of art and gold and silver artifacts.
Perhaps the best part of a visit to the cathedral is climbing up the ramp to the top of the clock tower for panoramic views of the city and Atlantic below.
TRAVEL TIP: If you climb the tower, you might want to bring earplugs; when the bells ring, they can be quite loud!
