The broad facade of Cádiz’s great cathedral, begun in 1722 and finished in 1838, is an unmistakable element of the old-town skyline. Its golden dome is flanked by two bell towers and two graceful palms. Climb the Torre del Reloj tower for a bird’s-eye view of the city and the open sea. The square in front of the cathedral’s western doorway is a popular meeting place for locals. Bar Terraza (at #3) is a Cádiz classic, while Casa Hidalgo (at #8) makes the best empanadas (flat, savory pies) in town.
