See the Mudejar-style tobacco factory, a fusion of Romanesque, Gothic and Arabic influences (now Congress Palace). You'll pass the neoclassical Royal Prison, new and old cathedrals, fountains, cast-iron balustrades and castles. Stroll the splendid Plaza de la Mina in the heart of the old town, nearby Calle Ancha, with its 19th-century palaces, and Cadiz Cathedral.
