Iglesia de San Juan Bautista (church)

Plaza Mayor


At the top of the street, presiding over the wide and luminous Plaza Mayor in our historical centre, we invite you to enjoy one of our great architectural jewels.

This is the church of San Juan Bautista, a cathedral-like building that is the best example of religious Neoclassical architecture in the province of Cadiz.

Accompanied during its construction by some of the most important and desolate episodes in the history of the city, such as the War of Independence (when the French troops used it as barracks and stables), it is the work of one of the most outstanding architects of the time (1776), Torcuato Cayón de la Vega.

Walking slowly through its nave with the curiosity that such an outstanding backdrop demands and enjoying the sight of its majestic columns, vaults and works of art (including canvases attributed to the school of Zurbarán) is a real artistic and religious experience.


Date of construction: Between 1773 and 1814.


Monday to Saturday from 8,30 am to 12 pm and from 6 pm to 9 pm.

Sundays from 8,30 am to 1 pm and from 6 pm to 9 pm,
