La Candelaria Bastion is a fortification in Cadiz dating from the Modern Age.

It was built in 1672, taking advantage of a raised area of ground, under orders of the then governor, Diego Caballero de Illescas.

Protected by a strong wall which also serves as a breakwater, its cannons controlled access to the port. It has served as barracks, engineering school and centre for the army's carrier pigeon division.
