I loved literally seeing "layers" of history, I have been to "La Casa del Obispo" twice, once with guide and the other one by ourselves.I recommend waiting for the tour, at no extra charge, since you learn so much more! Great way to know more about the OLDEST city in Europe!

I can't say anything about the tower because I didn't go up, but the museum's very good on the very early settlement of Cadiz / Gades. In some parts of the museum, you walk on glass floors and walkways, viewing ancient remains from high above, so it may not be for people afraid of heights. Open when the cathedral next... More

While walking around Cadiz, Spain, we stumbled upon La Casa del Obispo, an archeological museum. I don't know if I could find it again without directions! The museum was interesting in that it had clear floors so we were walking over digs showing the ancient history of Cadiz. The placards described the lives and living conditions back to Roman times.... More

It blew us a way that such an important and well done (albeit small) museum doesn't get more attention. For 5 Euros this is a must see.

Not the most interactive thing in Cadiz but since these remains go back down to 200 b.c. it's worth buying the combo ticket incl. the Cathedral tower.

A bit pricey at 6 euros but worth it for the views from the tower with recorded commentary in English.Underground ruins a bit confusing but quite interesting!

I was not over awed by the Casa del Obispo. It is interesting for sure, and I am glad I took the opportunity to view it. Walking on plexiglass walkways above the excavations is not for someone scared of heights, or prone to vertigo. For this site, you need time to be able to read all the facts and information... More
