  • This is one of the best archeology museum we have experienced. The museum is not large and encompasses a single site but learning about the Phoenician and Roman cities that are part of the history of ...  more »
  • The several times that I have visited Cadiz, wasn't on my agenda this wonderful Phoenician site of Gadir. I impressed the excellent instalaccciones and above all the explanation and comments that the Guide gave us, you could see that he liked his work and lived their interventions with eager to communicate and above all prepare continuously. A must-see in Cadiz.

  • Very unknown, even to the own victors, but highly recommended because they have very well preserved remains of the town from the Phoenician period. Very attentive and educational guidelines. In addition it is free (only have to adapt to passes of visits that there is every hour)

  • Even if you have little or no interest in archaeology (as I do) they have done a great job with this excavation to make it come alive for the General Public. They have created an introductory video and a post exhibit video to give you an idea of what life was like in this Phoenician Village. Often we judge on a review not only the experience but on how much we paid and how long how much of our day the experience took up. In this case admission is free and the whole session is done within an hour promptly. There are just one or two interactive signs where you can see different things by zooming in on a camera that would otherwise not be visible to the naked eye. Otherwise, the exhibit signs have good explanations and pictures with text in three different languages. As of right now, you need to go the day of the exhibit and get tickets for a particular hour and then come back. We came 15 minutes before the first hour they were open and they have not sold out -- but you might not be so lucky later in the day.
  • The tours here last about 45 minutes. While there is no admission fee, you *DO* need to reserve a ticket, since tour group-size is limited. Here you will see Gadir (Cádiz) in situ from the time it was colonized by the Phoenicians, through the Roman period. The building houses a beautifully preserved space, with translucent walkways over the ruins. Different-colored gravels distinguish between Phoenician and Roman structures. A multimedia presentation at the beginning lends a wonderful overview to the space throughout its history. There are even skeletal remains of an unfortunate that was overcome by smoke during a fire some 2,800 years ago. The tour guide we had spoke wonderful English, was VERY knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Kudos to her! The only reason for losing a star: apparently in very recent history, lightning knocked out the air conditioner and dehumidifier for a while... this has led to some very musty odors at one end of the site, that made it difficult for us to breathe without covering our noses. This site is definitely worth a visit!
  • A huge amount if effort has gone into explaining the different historic periods of Cadiz. Well worth a visit.
  • Fascinating Phonecian ruins under Puppet Theatre, reserve your free place at their box office. Great interactive multimedia interpretation and short movie in Spanish and English, plus super enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide to answer any other questions.
  • Very well worth a visit. Our guide was enthusiastic, amiable and really knew her stuff. And Cadiz has such a long and interesting history. I just can't rate this too highly
