  La Caleta at sunset
by blint

La Caleta is the beach in the old town of Cadiz city. It is a lot Smaller than the other beaches that sweep along the new town (and not quite as nice), but it is still a sight to see with the white peer like structure, the docked rowing boats and the Faro (lighthouse) perched at the end of a tiny strip of land that juts out from the beach.

You can visit the Castillo (castle or fortress) de Santa Catalina right beside this beach. Here you may be lucky enough to catch a free sundown concert of live music or to see an interesting art or photo exhibition.

You can visit Santa Catalina Mondays to Fridays between 10am and 6:30pm. Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays from 10am until 1pm. It is free.

Santa Catalina was built on the order of Felipe II in 1598 after the English attacked the city.

Address: 956 226 333.
Directions: In the old centre
