I really enjoyed my visit here. There is so much history underneath the streets of Cadiz! The visit was so interesting and not too long. Very professional tour guide who knew a lot about the place, plus she spoke both english and spanish.

Got a bit confused with finding this, and you have to book your free tour in advance at the venue....but worth it. Very informative video starts the tour, followed by time to explore the fascinating well laid-out exhibit. Everything was explained well in English, and...More

This place is absolutely stunning. 3 different eras of the ancient city, each one placed on top of the other, showing stories from thousands of years ago with quantity of details.

Really amazing place. We thought it was a theater until we looked more closely. They only tour on the hour and each visit is limited to 25 people. They show a movie which gives you some background. Then you can walk through at your own...More

This is well worth your time, and it's free! The initial video is WAY cheesy, but the Phonecian and Roman areas are well worth sitting through it.

The city of Gadir was one of the oldest Phoenician settlements in the West. This archeological site shows different periods of a settlement. Walking by the site you would never realize what is inside. The site is completely enclosed in what looks like a museum....More

They were closed from 2-4, so we showed up at 4, only to find a sign saying they were coming back at 4:45 and the 5:00 tour was not available, so we can't see it until 6. Darn.... we were looking forward to it.
