A grandiose structure capped by a dome of golden tiles was described by Richard Ford as "a stranded wreck on a quicksand." This 18th Century Baroque cathedral gets few visitors. This is a welcome change after the hordes of visitors in places such as Seville, so you have the cathedral experience, as it should be - in silence. A highlight is the lower floor. If you stand in the middle of the circular basement and make a noise the echo effect it produces is truly wonderful.

An impressive collection of church treasures can be viewed and in the crypt lies the tomb of composer Manuel de Falla, a Cadiz native, whose music is evocative of the magic of Andalucia. The best external view of the cathedral is to walk along the sea front behind it so you can observe the golden dome.
