This is an imposing stone construction that once guarded the landside entrance to the city. Nowadays, it strides colossus-like across the road into/from the city, marking the delineation between the “old” and “new” towns. Consequently, it is usually the locus of heavy traffic that passes...More

We went here in late November and whilst the weather was wonderful the place was empty. It is free to climb up the tower and then walk along the wide walls to look back across Cadiz,along the coast, or out to sea. There are loads...More
