How to Enjoy Visiting Cadiz, Spain, Cadiz, Spain (B)

The small seaside Spanish town of Cadiz is not the kind of place where you’ll find a long list of tourist attractions.

To really enjoy visiting Cadiz, you need to do a lot wandering, drinking, and beaching.

Cadiz boasts a couple of museums, a castle fortress (that is temporarily closed), a cathedral, and a lot of adorable streets full of sidewalk cafes. Most of the sightseeing will be found in the Old Town of Cadiz, where everything is less than 10 minutes’ walk.

In the heart of Old Town, Cadiz has an imposing baroque cathedral to visit. The inside of the Cadiz Cathedral looks a little worse for the wear, with netting keeping the falling pieces of the ceiling from raining on visitors. It’s beautiful in the kind of way that things that are slowly falling apart are beautiful. More importantly, here you can visit the cathedral’s bell tower. Though it’s a bit of a grueling hike up, the views of the coast between the cathedral’s golden dome and arches are well worth it.
