For 5e you get to see the Roman remains of Cadiz. Mainly sewera and wells. These go back 3000 years. It could get a bit claustrophobic and warm if it was busy. I been now but I wouldn't go back. I'd have a beer in the square opposit.

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!

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.

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!
