The Pylons of Cádiz, also known as the Towers of Cádiz, are two tall pylons supporting two 132kV three-phase AC powerlines crossing the bay of Cádiz, Spain, from a large substation at Puerto Real to the Térmica substation situated on the peninsula upon which the city of Cádiz stands. (To be more precise, the Puerto Real pylon stands in the Matagorda quarter near the commercial wharves, and the Cádiz pylon is near Fort Puntales and the Puntales Naval Station.)

The pylons of Cádiz, averaging 158 metres in height, handle two electrical circuits. They were conceived and designed by the Italian engineer, Alberto Toscano, and they are of a very unconventional construction.
