Cádiz' yellow-domed cathedral is an impressively proportioned baroque–neoclassical construction, but by Spanish standards very sober in its decoration. It fronts a broad, traffic-free plaza where the cathedral's ground-plan is picked out in the paving stones. The decision to build the cathedral was taken in 1716 but the project wasn't finished until 1838, by which time neoclassical elements, such as the dome, towers and main facade, had diluted Vicente Acero's original baroque plan. From a separate entrance on Plaza de la Catedral, climb to the top of the Torre de Poniente for marvellous vistas.
