The Cathedral

Visiting Cadiz and not having your photo taken in front of the Cathedral is like going to Paris without the mythical photo with the Eiffel Tour. This cathedral is located in the centre of the city. With three large doors on the façade, this first image shows us the cultural value it holds inside. Its construction dates from the 18th century, although it was not finished until the 19th century, specifically in 1838. It is mainly a Baroque style building of worship, although inside you can enjoy its neoclassical style altar. We also recommend you to join the guided visits to the Cathedral and the Roman Theatre of the city to enjoy your visit to the fullest by the hands of the best local guides.
