The Bishop´s House Archaeological Site

Archaeological sites
Plaza Catedral
Yacimiento arqueológico de la Casa del Obispo

The archaeological settlement of the Bishop's House is right in the historical centre of the city of Cadiz, between the former cathedral and the new cathedral of the city.  You can here discover how the city developed from the 8th century B.C. to the 8th century A.D. The oldest archaeological remains belong to a small Phoenician building dating back to the 8th century B.C. The following structure of interest is a Phoenician Burial monument which is from the 6th century B.C..  Along with its extensions excavated in the rock, it makes up one of the most important burial complexes on the Iberian Peninsula.  The enshrinement of the zone ended in the Barcida era with the first monumentalisation of the area.  During the Republican Roman era, a new complex was built next to the Punic buildings and  the water ritual was then changed, a fact that had not been documented up until then. The increased importance of this cultural area culminated in ancient times with the restoration of the space, when many monuments were built, including the remains of a Roman temple belonging to a complex of three temples dedicated to Apollo, Asclepius and Hygieia (Asklepieion).
