Free to enter, this is well worth a visit. Its archeology sections demonstrate the influences of the various civilisations who were drawn to Cadiz by its unique geography - some fascinating and well-displayed items. The art is worth a visit but, compared to other cities'...More

Lots to see and do in here but for me the jewel in the crown was the room that had around a dozen paintings by Francisco de Zurburan, whose work I admire greatly. These alone would have made the visit extremely worthwhile.
