When a province such as Cadiz has lived thousands of years of civilisation with the most important cultures, such as Phoenicians, Romans, Jews, Muslims or Christians, it’s commonsense that there is an immense number of important historic buildings.

As we said, the province of Cadiz has a wide diversity of buildings from different periods and architectural styles.

You’ll find the largest City Hall in Andalusia, where the first Spanish Constitution was determined, in the city of San Fernando.

In Cadiz city you will find the Castle of San Sebastian, an old fortress that nowadays hosts a lot of concerts and other events.

From the Muslim period, you’ll find the Castle of Guzman el Bueno, which had an important role in the reconquista.

Another very important building is the Castle of Sancti Petri, in Chiclana, located where ancient texts located the Temple of Hercules, which nowadays can be reached through guided tours in kayaks.

In the province of Cadiz there is also the Observatory, that gives the official time to all Spain and that you can visit. It is located in San Fernando.

In Jerez you can see one of the only examples of Almohad architecture found in Spain, the Alcazar.

There are also important historical buildings in the Sierra de Cadiz, such as the Castle of Olvera, the Castle of Espera, the Castle of Arcos and the Castle of Castellar. You’ll also find the Torre del Reloj in Zahara and the Torre del Reloj de Doña Blanca, in Medina Sidonia. We cannot forget the Cerro del Castillo, in Medina Sidonia too, where three different fortresses have been found.

All this and more can be visited in the province of Cadiz. On TUDESTINO you can find all the information you need to plan a splendid cultural day.
