    Cádiz

    September 4 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Zu Fuß haben wir die Gassen der Altstadt von Cádiz erkundet.

    Sehr beeindruckend war die Kathedrale und die Aussicht vom Glockenturm 🔔 .
    Uns hat ein Glocken mehrtöniger Glockenschlag ereilt als wir oben waren- ohrenbetäubend. Das Hinweisschild habe ih natürlich erst danach gesehen. 🤷‍♀️

    Es folgt die Siesta und dann geht’s an den Strand 🏖

    Day 48h. Cadiz, Spain

    September 21 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Walking along the coastal wall we headed back to Puerto de Cruceros, the Cruise Terminal. We stopped at the Roman Theatre which closed at 5pm but we could view it through an iron fence.
    Our ship was docked at the end of the main plaza and walking mall, Plaza San Juan de Dios.

    Cadiz carnival

    February 23 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Last night we went out for dinner to a recommended restaurant where the specialty is ortaguillas- sea anemones. They are small black lumps fried in batter and were edible, not unpleasant but not very interesting. The best dish was a whole tentacle of octopus draped across yummy potatoes. The octopus was grilled or griddled, not stewed but was so tasty and tender. On the way home we passed one of the music groups that take part in Carnival - all dressed in costume and later they were on local tv singing on stage. The groups make up topical songs and compete for most funny and satirical.Read more

    Phoencian Cadiz

    February 23 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Yesterday morning we wandered around a bit and went to the central market. It's not as atmospheric as the one in Jerez but has a huge section of fresh fish of all types and especially of shellfish. Sadly I don't think we are going to get time to cook any of them ourselves but the restaurants are certainly full of things we haven't tried before. Then we found a building that houses a new archaeological excavation that wasn't here the last time we came. About ten years ago they were digging in the old roman salting pits, where the Romans used to make their favourite salty sauce, called garum, from decaying fish innards. ( don't think I'll be trying that!), and underneath they found phoencian houses that were much older, and these are now on display. It's easy to make out the remains of the house walls, still covered in red clay, and lots of tandor-like ovens, and clay pots.Read more

    Cadiz museum

    February 24 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We seemed to spend most of the day in Cadiz museum, which is a really fine museum on the ground floor and classical and contemporary art on the two floors above. We also had a quick at the oratorio next door, where Spain's 1812 government, the Cortez, agreed the countries liberal constitution , whilst still at war with Napoleon.Read more

    Cadiz cathedral

    February 25 in Spain ⋅ 🌬 17 °C

    Yesterday morning we went to Cadiz cathedral, which is absolutely HUGE, it's one of the biggest churches in Spain , and Spain has a lot of churches! It's described as being austere, but that's in comparison to what Spanish churches are usually like. It's a bit of a barn, but has a very unusual circular crypt, and from the top of the 130ft bell towers you can get views all over Cadiz and out across the bay to Rota and El Puerto de Santa Maria on the other side of the estuary of the river Guadelete.Read more

    Tuesday

    February 26 in Spain ⋅ 🌬 15 °C

    It's been very windy here yesterday and today so we have stayed visiting indoor places. First the old cathedral, much more church-like than the barn next to it, and then to an oratory with some frescoes by Goya. Tomorrow we are going on a day trip to el Puerto de Santa Maria, just 35 minutes across the bay from Cadiz by catamaran. There we can visit our favourite sherry bodega and have a tasting, a visit to the small local museum, and lunch in the sun on the waterfront before getting a boat back. I hope the wind dies down a bit or it could be a bit bouncy!Read more

    Leaving Cadiz

    February 28 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    It's been a beautiful day here, 20c with a slight breeze, and at home it's 11c, cloudy with overnight rain. Hohum! Tomorrow we get a taxi from here to Jerez airport for the flight home, and if everything works ok we should be home late afternoon. It's Andulcia day here today, a public holiday, and the bars and plazas are full of people, families, and kids having a good day in the sun, and this weekend is the start of carnival, the biggest carnival in Spain and the city is full, people come in from Jerez and further for festivities and the hotels and rooms are all full - apparently the trains to Jerez first thing in the morning are packed with partying people going home from all-nighters. This morning we walked out along the causeway to one of the forts, and then to through one of the parks along the shore. This evening I think a last tapas bar crawl!Read more

    Carnival

    February 28 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Carnival officially started at lunchtime today. In some bars you come across the singing groups that will compete for best in various categories. They are very popular and it's a shame we have no idea what they are singing about. This evening they turned on the carnival lights and nearly every street has pretty lights strung across. Not sorry we are leaving before the hard partying starts. Already the town is much fuller and noisier than earlier in the week.Read more

    Cadiz

    May 5 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Wir haben den ganzen Tag in der Stadt verbracht. Cadiz hat fast 3000Jahre Geschichte auf dem Buckel. Die Altstadt ist sehr schön, die Promenade an der Küste wunderbar ausgebaut. Es waren viele Leute unterwegs , ab Mittag auch viele Einheimische. Aber es war längst nicht so viel wie in Lissabon.
