We called in here as part of our circular walk around the sea perimeter of Cadiz. It was free to enter. One of the rooms seemed to house occasional exhibitions, and a painting collection was on display during our visit, which we quite enjoyed. There’s...More

While walking the city, we stopped in at this castle. We enjoyed the views and photo opportunities. Cadiz is a fun place to visit if you enjoy lovely churches, attending mass, and practicing Spanish. We had a great time here.

Walking along the seafront is one of the highlights of my trip to Cadiz. The view is just so beautiful. From the Cathedral to Playa de la Caleta, then to Castillo de Santa Catalina, it's a leisurely walk, with a lot of sea birds flying...More

Approaching from across the Playa de la Caleta is a good way especially if one is looking for some good camera shots. Entry gives one a good idea about how confined the fortress might have been during numerous conflicts. Views from the battlements over the...More
