They were closed from 2-4, so we showed up at 4, only to find a sign saying they were coming back at 4:45 and the 5:00 tour was not available, so we can't see it until 6. Darn.... we were looking forward to it.

I was quietly surprised. I was late into Cadiz from Sevilla this is one place you must visit. Best kept secret it was recommended by hotel staff. I only wished it would remain open /?open earlier. Sadly I understand it is closed for renovations. Hint:...More

Stopped by and got tickets which are free but would have liked to have found it and been able to enter sooner. Not sure why they won't let you enter before the hour indicated on ticket because there was nobody around.
