I think most people are confused as to which site this is. This site is actually situated on the side of the post office building. Not the puppet theatre. That’s a different attraction. When we arrived the sliver door/ shutter was across but you could...More

A small but very interesting place to visit where after a short video you visit some archeological remains of Phonecian Cadiz or Gadir as I think it was called then. You don't have to be a history buff to be impressed. It's also free.

Entrance is free at least ... Also you will not have to walk too much from the Cathedral. Don't expect spending 30 min or an hour at this place. At most 15min should be enough for this place
