San Sebastián Castle is a fortress in Cadiz, located at one end of La Caleta, set on an islet which was, according to classical tradition, also home to the Temple of Kronos.

Building work began in 1706 on a fortified site with irregular floor plan designed to defend the north flank of the city. Inside you will find the modern-day lighthouse, installed in 1908, with a metallic structure reaching 41 metres in height. It was only Spain's second electric lighthouse at that time and was built on the base of a Moorish watchtower.

The unusual lines of this castle set against the sea have made it the setting for several films shot in Cadiz.

It was declared of Cultural Interest in 1985.
