Museo de CádizThe town museum on Plaza Mina contains at least two important items among its pleasant jumble of Cádiz-related artifacts. The Phoenician sarcophagi, their cartoonish features belying their enormous size, are obligatory viewing, as is the series of Zurbarán paintings of saints from the charterhouse of Jerez, unforgettable in the chiaroscuro rendering of their monkish robes. Also, don’t miss the huge historical painting by local artist Ramón Rodríguez Barcaza, representing Cádiz’s plucky resistance against the siege by Napoleonic troops in 1810-12.
