Construction of the Catedral Nueva began in 1776 in the High Baroque style of architecture and was completed 116 years later after rococo and neo-classical styles were introduced.
Although the main entrance is in the old town of Cadiz in Plaza de la Catedral, a view of the the massive building can be seen from along the waterfront. The main dome (cupola) which features golden-yellow tiles and is one of Spain's largest, stands out from along the bay as do the two Neo-classical towers which frame its facade.
The City of Cadiz is situated along the Costa de la Luz in the Bay of Cadiz. It lays claim to being Europe's oldest city.
