Plaza San Juan de Dios & Around information

Lonely Planet review

Broad Plaza San Juan de Dios is lined with cafes and is dominated by the imposing neoclassical ayuntamiento built around 1800. Between here and the cathedral is the Barrio del Pópulo, the kernel of medieval Cádiz and a focus of the city's on­going sprucing-up program. At the nearby Roman Theatre you can walk along a gallery beneath the tiers of seating. The theatre was discovered by chance in 1980.
