Among the most famous are remarkable examples such as the Church of St. John the Baptist (Iglesia Mayor) built in a neoclassical style, the chapel of Santa Ana, which is undoubtedly the most emblematic corner of the city, and the convent of Jesus of Nazareth, where one can find a statue of American origin that dates back to the 17th century.
It is also worth mentioning the Holy Trinity church (San Telmo) with an altar depicting Saint Elmo and the Our Lady of Los Remedios. Pay a visit to the Church of San Sebastián, dating from the 16th century, and the Chapel of Vera Cruz - the oldest religious building in the city (dating from the 15th century). Another chapel worth noting is in inside the San Martín Hospital.
In addition, there is also a lot of very impressive civil architecture in Chiclana de la Frontera.
