The Cathedral of Cadiz was built in the 18th century and it is also known as the New Cathedral. This is because it was built next door to the original one, which was destroyed by the British. It took over 100 years to finish, therefore the building is a mix of two styles: Baroque and Neoclassical. From here, you can see one of the best views of the city.
