My Fourth Visit to Spain: Catedral de Cádiz

After spending time in Cordoba, it was time to move again. This time, I packed my bags and went to Cádiz, where I spent one night. And after finding my hotel, I dropped off my bag and checked the town. The first thing I bumped into was the cathedral, which was very prominent, and had a yellow dome.

This cathedral was commissioned in 1716, but it took years for it to be finished, finally wrapping up in 1838. This also meant that the original Baroque design was eventually mixed with neo-classical elements. Funny enough, I realised that I didn't have a picture of the exterior, as I was very busy checking out the majestic interior of this building.

The interior elements were worth checking out. The choir for example had a very intricate wooden design.

The various chapels that are to be found around the altar was also definitely stunning. There's definitely plenty of jewels and other treasures in this building.

I also checked out the crypt, which is where Manuel de Falla is buried, a Spanish composer.

Finally, I also saw some side rooms. Overall, this was a very captivating building, and a place that I would recommend visiting if you are in Cádiz.
