Barrio del Pópulo

Catedral de Cádiz

The Pópulo’s Barrio is the oldest part of the city, surrounded by an arabic wall. Apart from the historic buildings that it houses, it stands out for the great amount of bars for having tapas, coffee or some drinks. Its nightlife scene is outstanding and singular.

It is a great place for buying handicrafts, or look for an unexpected concert in one of their cosy alleys.

You will easily find it, or get lost through it, between the city hall and the cathedral.

And about the Cathedral, we can highlight that it took 116 years to complete, so the mix of styles is evident. 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. Here’s is also the final resting place of  the famous composer Manuel de Falla.

To Stand Out

º Brilliant place for find the andalusian atmosphere, wether their tapas cuisine you will find in all the small bars that there are in abundance; or their genuine people you may meet in your way.
º You may feel like seeing for yourself the breathtaking views from the Cathedral's tower, only comparable with the ones from Tavira Tower.
