Parador de Cadiz is the lo­cal out­post of the state-owned Paradores chain and is a stand­out. A modernist block perched Atlantic-wards on the north­ern tip of the old town, it has spec­tac­u­lar views from the all-glass bal­conies and is only a few steps from pretty La Caleta Beach. It also has a vast out­door pool. From about $258 a night twin-share with break­fast in Oc­to­ber, a rec­om­mended time to visit. More: parador.es/en. Ho­tel La Cat­e­dral is next to the cathe­dral and has a small rooftop pool with a stun­ning view. The 14 gue­strooms, six of which look on to the cathe­dral, are sim­ple but el­e­gant.

Try Bar Man­teca at 66 Calle Cor­ralon de los Car­ros and Me­son Cum­bres May­ores. More: meson­cum­bres­may­ores.com.
