The old cathedral is also known as Holy Cross Church, Parish Church of the Tabernacle and ecclesiastical accounting, until 1838 was the Cathedral of Cadiz (hence its name) and is built on the site of a former mosque. The original church was built by Alfonso X "El Sabio", was repeatedly destroyed. She retains the entry arch and the gothic vault of the chapel of the baptism. The current construction of the old cathedral owes its project to Cristobal de Rojas and was completed in 1602. It is rectangular, with false transept and three naves separated by columns of the Tuscan order and canted arches. The cruise is covered with a hemispherical dome on pendentives. The housing's exterior is tiles of various colors. The Bell Tower, separate from the rest of the Church, is topped with a Spire, also of polychrome tiles. The chapel of the tabernacle was completed in 1692, is square and is covered with false has wooden dome. It was renovated internally by Torcuato Cayón.
