    Cadiz, Spain

    August 28, 2017 in Spain

    Cadiz is a peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on three sides. There are alot of shipyards and today many cruise ships come here for repair or refurbishment.
    Cadiz claims to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the Western World, beginning in 1100 BC. The architecture has been shaped by its variety of cultures.
    We drove around the city for 1.5 hours, stopping at key sights and viewing beaches.
    We then went to La Cava (an old tavern) for sangria, tapas and a private Flamenco show. The singers and dancers were excellent. Our day in Cadiz was great.

    March 30 in Spain

    Vendredi-Saint, 30 mars 2018
    Nous partons sous la pluie à la gare maritime pour prendre le catamaran qui assure la liaison avec Cádiz. A cause du mauvais temps, celui-ci est remplacé par un bus. Le soleil revient pour la visite de cette presqu'île. Après les découvertes faites par Chr. Colomb, Cádiz vit son âge d'or et vivra de l'échange maritime avec les colonies. De nombreux palais témoignent de cette période. Nous allons voir l'église de Santa Cruz et la Cathédrale, majestueuse. Les deux contiennent des autels décorés pour les processions de la Semaine Sainte. Nous allons nous renseigner à propos des célébrations. Nous nous régalons des fruits de mer que nous savourons à la Freiduria de las Flores. Nous avons réservé notre visite de la Torre Tavira et de sa camara obscura avec explications en français. Très intéressant! Nous attendons le départ d'une procession, mais nous abandonnons après une heure pour ne pas louper le bus. Nous avons plus de chance à El Puerto, où nous arrivons juste à l'heure pour voir la première confrérie arriver devant l'hôtel de ville et la deuxième se met une heure après en route. C'est très émouvant! Fatigués et affamés arrivons nous à 22h au camping.Read more

    Cadiz, Spain

    October 13, 2017 in Spain

    The drills that were suppose to happen in Oporto were today so we couldn’t get off the ship until after lunch. Once we could though we headed into town. Our manager Chris came with us but he complained that he was too hot after about 15 minutes and headed back to the ship. Andy the photographer I was with had never been to Cadiz before so I kind of turned into a tour guide. Taking her to the giant monument, town centre and to the cathedral. We stopped so she could get a sangria and I could get a Pepsi at a little bar/restaurant beside the cathedral. Some passengers from the ship ended up sitting with us to escape the sun. After talking to them for a while we had to come up with an excuse to leave. They were a very nice couple but our time out in port is also our time to escape passengers. They kept offering to buy us drinks so we would stay but we said we had to go.

    After that we found another photographer before heading to a supermarket to pick up some much needed groceries. After dropping stuff off at the ship the three of us are now back in the cruise terminal using the wifi to update our phones and computers.

    September 13, 2017 in Spain

    Nach Durchqueren der Straße von Gibraltar haben wir in Cádiz an der Costa de la Luz angelegt. Die Stadt mit ihren 140.000 Einwohnern verfügt heute über den größten Atlantikhafen Spaniens, hier befinden sich außerdem bedeutende Schiffswerften sowie eine Marinebasis. Cádiz ist der wichtigste Exporthafen für Sherry und Brandy aus Jerez sowie Oliven und das berühmte Olivenöl aus Jaen.
    Hoch erfreut waren wir, dass sich der Hafen nur rund 200 Meter vom Rathaus befindet. Die Stadt also fußläufig erreichbar ist. Unser Spaziergang führte uns dann auch über die attraktive Fußgängerzone vorbei am Rathaus zur beeindruckenden Kathedrale. Der Bau war im Jahre 1722 begonnen und Mitte des 19. Jahrhundert fertig geworden. In der Altstadt findet man viele kleine Geschäfte und eine stattlich Markthalle. Hier werden vornehmlich Fisch und Schalentiere verkauft. Der Zuspruch der Einheimischen und der Touristen ist groß.Read more

    Cádiz, Spain

    September 29, 2016 in Spain

    Now here is another city that I'd been to before but never really explored.
    Cádiz in Spain 🇪🇸 is a fascinating city, rich in history and is the home of the Spanish navy.
    The old town is very Moorish in its design with lots of horseshoe arches and winding cobbled streets that open out in to tree lined squares.
    It is a walled city and it was really nice to walk along the wide 17th century bastions. Some parts of which still have the old cannons pointing out to sea.
    After walking part of the walls, I headed into town and found the Cádiz museum/art gallery.
    The entry was free, which is always a bonus.
    It covers four floors and has items from prehistoric times right up to the modern art of the present day.
    One of the things that always fascinates me with these old towns is, that you look at the outside of some of the apartment buildings, and they are old and crumbling, but if you look inside the open front doors, most of which are left open, they can be beautiful, with gorgeous tiled hallways and what look like communal areas.
