Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer another nice photo taken on the beach of La Caleta, with their small boats typical moored in the foreground and the wall of defensive bastion of the castle of Santa Catalina in the background, in the ancient city of Cadiz, I hope you like it, then a few letters on the beach.

La Caleta is a beach located in the historical center of the city of Cádiz (Andalucía, Spain). It was natural harbor in which boats anchored Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans.

Beach is less extensive citywide, and isolated from the rest. Its main attraction is its location, a scenario that has inspired musicians and poets such as Isaac Albéniz, José María Peman, Paco Alba or Carlos Cano. The flanking the castles of San Sebastian and Santa Catalina, off the faculty of Economics (former hospital Mora) and by the Faculty of Work Sciences Campus of the University of Cádiz same name.

It has been the scene of several movies such as 007: Die Another Day, Alatriste, Manolete and El Amor Brujo.
Cadiz consider it one of the most emblematic places of the city, being recurring theme in Carnival songs.

Currently hanging over Caleta threat of works promoted by the Consortium of the Bicentennial of the Constitution of 1812 Such works include, again according to the original project, published in the BOP of Cadiz, an extension with four crossing points, Paseo Fernando Quiñones (which is the road that leads to the Castle of San Sebastian), pouring cement on the oyster stone, and a dock for boats up to 15 meters on the north side of the said castle with dredging accordingly.

These stories are being answered with multiple public demonstrations by university professors and lecturers and especially through mobilization Platform Save the Caleta, which narrowly won in a week, about 1,600 claims against the pier project and that leads you collected more than 4000 signatures in an attempt to protect the beach and scenic, biotic and cultural environment through the declaration of the same as protected Natural Monument.

One of the things that makes this beach so unique is that each stone has its own name, for example: the quadratic stone, Reonda stone basin, "Stone Hedgehog", "purl", "the flagstone ".
