Located on the pristine shore of Cadiz, Spain, the Castle of San Sebastian is a beautiful fortress that you would love to visit if you are here. The serenity of La Caleta beach is such that you will be mesmerized for a lifetime. As this place is secluded from the main city, it is untouched by the human affair and so displays the wonderful architecture of the fortress and soothing sea at their natural form. The castle is said to be built in the year 1706. Inside the castle, according to the classical tradition, there was a temple of Kronos (a Titan of the Greek gods). As you around the castle, you will find a lighthouse that was built during the Muslim period. It has an iron structure and is known as the second electricity powered lighthouse in Spain.

Castillo De San Sebastian Reviews & Ratings
It looked great even tho we couldn't get it as it was closed at the time probably due to restoration works. It was so windy that day that we almost flew 😂 Lovely place to walk on the bridge/path crossing the sea to reach the castle. Very enjoyable 🏰🌊
What an amazing place. A castle out in the Atlantic Ocean. I hung out on the beach and soaked up the afternoon sun and then walked out to the castle where the waves were crashing through the cracks in the rocks. It's a beautiful piece of history and worth taking a stroll to, especially at high tide or when the waves are big.
The old coastal fortification is definitely worth a visit. The way to this fort is awesome. You walk on a narrow path into the open sea. The waves break on both sides of the path. Great view of the city and the vast coast of Cadiz.
Would've been nice, however the place was closed, seemingly indefinitely. The walk down to it was very nice though. Maybe give a better rating if it ever reopens.
Interesting and evocative. Worth a visit (it's free)!
