  • The Castillo de Santa Catalina, is a venue that served their time to defend the city of entries by sea through this area of la Caleta. Today many of its rooms are used for exhibitions. A good castle with a very good restoration and care.

  • Entry is free to what was the oldest defensive fortress and Watchtower on the extreme point of the city. From here you can enjoy beautiful views and Interior buildings such as the Church and powder magazines are well preserved.

  • Defensive fortification located next to the beach of la Caleta. Currently, it is restored and adapted to tourism. The visit is free and lasts about 30 minutes. The Castle has a very nice courtyard and spectacular views to the sea from their viewpoints. I think that come here and visit it is worth (it is free, interesting, with a good view and you can take great pictures). * No doubt, visit cultural and historical important of Cádiz *

  • Its very beautiful in Cadiz but the maps make it seem massive and then you can't find what you want if it's a day trip. The maps need pictures and timescale.
  • A really lovely place to visit.. Spend some time here especially on a rainy day as there are lots to see here?
  • They've done a nice job restoring this old fort. Today it houses art and cultural exhibits. Something of interest to most I would imagine. Only vending refreshments I'm afraid, but you are right next to Cadiz city centre.
  • Stunning castle, I really appreciated the history and the grandeur, it was amazing, I love Cadiz in it's entirety, it is one of the most perfect places on planet earth.
  • If not for some modern sculptures, one might think that is in some "Western"or in Mexico.😍 I loved 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. One would love to paint it.😊
