Castle Of San Sebastian - Review
The Castle of San Sebastian is located at one end of La Caleta and is set on an islet which was, according to classical tradition, also home to the Temple of Chronos. The Castle was built during the early 1700s and was built to defend the north flank of the city. Within the castle walls, you will find a modern-day lighthouse which was installed in 1908. The picturesque castle along with the Caleta beach has been the setting for several films shootings. The Castle of San Sebastian was declared Monument of Cultural Interest in 1985.

Castle Of San Sebastian, Cadiz Reviews
Great expectations disappointed!! Long and good walk, but at the arrival there's simply nothing except of a good lanfscape
The castle itself isn't great, but it's a really nice walk, and great views of Cadiz
Very nice castle by the sea. It totally gives the vibes...
The air and walk is pleasant and windy but the actual Castillo is not really much and quite desolate. A bit Alcatraz! Not much to see of interest or history. None the less a good walk and view from the elevated platform which surrounds the lighthouse into the sea. Access via a ramp which is good but cobbled floor along the way to get there so maybe not suitable for wheelchairs etc. Very little shade or seating but has a toilet.
