Falla's final resting place

It took 116 years to complete, and thus there is an evident mixture of styles. Construction began in the Baroque style and was completed in the neoclassical style. There are works of sculpture from the old cathedral on the interior.

The towers and the sacristy were the last elements to be built in the 19th century. Particular highlights include the vaults of the high altar and the choir stalls, although the latter were not originally from the cathedral. There are some very beautiful Baroque images. The church is crowned with a dome of golden tiles which gives it an imposing appearance. The famous composer Manuel de Falla is buried in the crypt.

Since 2003, the Torre de Poniente tower has become a new tourist attraction in the city. The bell tower, whose construction began in Cadiz’s golden age in the 18th century, can be reached via the ramp. The top of the tower affords outstanding views over the city below.
