    During around Cadiz we performed a tour at the Castle. In fact we did a beautiful walk on the road leading to the Castle, then once inside the walls, only desolation. By doing the rounds on the walls of the Castle gives you the chance to enjoy a splendid view of the ocean, but little else.

    When you do walk the promenade, if you take advantage of and it, not enough to go just to see it, because it is quite normal, but hey, the site, the atmosphere, this very nice

    From the walls of this castle can see la Caleta: 3100 years history. Although no plaque reminds him, Tejero was here imprisoned in a comfortable cell to which his friends wore tremendous seafood restaurants nearby. A place with history, free and very good. There are sometimes concerts coinciding with the sunset, highly recommended.

  • Nice view and clean! Love it, there are expositions inside but I didn't have time to see any
  • 17C fort with great views and a couple of small modern art exhibitions. Free entry.
  • A lovely small fortress/castle with great views over the sea to the rest of Cádiz. What I really like though were that many of the rooms are given over to exhibitions of great modern art. Unexpected and it transforms "just another ruined castle" (of which we have thousands in Europe) into a rather special place. Entrance is free which is always good.
  • Not much to see but at least it's a free admission. A lovely small fortress with great views over Cádiz.
  • If not for some modern sculptures, one might think that is in some "Western" or in Mexico. I love that courtyard with little Chapel and "hacienda"?! It's so diffrent to the style of Cadiz. And the view of the bay with those little colourful fishing boats...wow so romantic...so picturesque. I just would love to paint it.
