It’s fabulous window onto an ancient settlement dating back almost 3 millennia. Serendipitously uncovered under the Puppet Theatre it is an absolute treasure given the paucity of Phoenician artefacts in the West.

Gadir, as the settlement was known, is one of the oldest Western Phoenician sites. Fascinating it was to walk around seeing age old life vividly shown with exhibits such as remains of a fire fatality, hoof prints on the street and remains of a cat.

Really interesting museum, with great history across Phoenicians, Romans and more emergent past. Very well explained by the guides. And it’s free! Best place to visit in Cadiz

Well organised and very interesting museum. Took about 45 min, including a 15 min film about the phonecian history of Cadiz. Do beware that you cannot book days in advance or book online. Show up when they open and get your tickets for your preferred Time that day

Very interesting worth a visit numbers are restricted to 25 per session. Not the easiest place to find as it is within the theatre.

Scheduled hourly entrance with free tickets. Introduction video in Spanish with English subtitles. Excellent and interesting archaeological and historical site, with friendly and helpful staff.
IMPORTANT: The description indicates the site is temporarily closed. As of May 10, 2023, it was and is open.
Bonus - Around the corner is an archaeological site from the Roman era. Also free. Also interesting.

As the numbers who visit are limited you have to book a slot. There is an introductory film then you are allowed to wander round the site and enjoy the ancient finds.

Interesting tour, free, but tickets needed. Tour guide speaks in Spanish then translates to English. Video has English subtitles and is easy to understand. Worth a visit! Check their website for times.

The guide was easy to understand and was able to answer my questions with ease. Well done exhibit! I loved seeing and learning about the Phoenician culture. Just amazing that this exists and is on display! It’s a must see!

Despite a rather shaky introductory video which introduces the ancient history of Cádiz through the supposed investigation of the body found on this site, this is a very enjoyable visit. The site is underneath the modern puppet theatre and although entrance is free, visits are timed and as numbers are limited, you need to get your ticket in advance. At the designated time you go down stairs and view the video. You then wander the site and will see remains of Phoenician houses and streets as well as one of the ubiquitous Roman fish sauce factories which are frequent in this part of the Roman world due to the availability of ample supplies of red tuna.

Really a wonderful and educational visit. There is a brief movie at the outset that presents the history in a fun and informative way.. Unfortunately, the tour narration was only in Spanish and along with the English-only speakers, a family from Germany was a bit lost in the explanation. Of course, we appreciate the cultural realities and can’t expect everything to be in multiple languages (although the written exhibit descriptions are), but we’d have gladly paid for an English audio.

That said, the staff were very gracious, and happy to answer questions in English, the exhibits are extremely well-done and the historical perspective was amazing. The Phoenicians were an incredible culture that contributed so much to what is now a beautiful city and it’s great to see so much of it preserved so well.
