  • It's free, it has a beautiful 15th century alter, great views (check out peering through the view holes/window in the lookout posts. There was also a couple of awesome art exhibitions, plus an install...  more »
  • Not much to see at the site, but it is a nice walk out to the fortress which is surrounded by the sea and it is free. We almost had the place to ourselves just a few other tourists. 
  • A place I visited once again where you see a beautiful sunset and is isolated from the hustle and bustle of the city. A place that the sea and the sky are in the landscape from the fortress and its campus with different exposures, make pleasant viewing.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Free admission, but rather simplistic fortress with not much to see. There are few museum-like facilities inside that I avoided, maybe there's something in there.
  • Really nice place. The views are great and the architecture is really nice.
  • Nice views from the fortress that in the past used to be a prison. There are some local artist working and exposing inside the rooms. Free entrance and almost nobody inside
