According to legend, the city was founded by Menestheus Athenian king who participated in the Trojan War. When the war and came home, had assaulted his throne and had to emigrate. Sailing without a destination ended up right at the mouth of the river Guadalete and founded the city, Port of Menestheus. This historic event took place in 1184 or 1183 BC, as the Trojan War took place between 1194 and 1184 BC, approximately 3,200 years.
According to some archaeologists the first Gadir, as the first urban center or business center, was built in what is now the Castillo de Dońa Blanca, leaving what is now a holy place Cadiz and its subsequent use as the seventh century village -VI.
El Puerto de Santa Maria is known as the City of the Hundred Palaces, although the passage of time and neglect have left many of these fine buildings have been practically ruined. Proceeds from the trade with Spanish America or India in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in the town were built like palaces tailored to the needs of large traders who were also called Shippers pigs.
Legend attributes the foundation of the city to an Athenian leader, Menestheus after the Trojan War founded a city bearing his name, port Menestheus. In 711 the Muslim army fought the Visigoths at the Battle of Guadalete, which marked the entry of the Arabs in the peninsula. From that moment, the city became part of Muslim territory with the new name would love Alcanter, Alcanate or Alcanatif (الكاناتيف), some researchers translate as Puerto de las Salinas. In 1260, Alfonso X conquered the city to Muslim and Arab renamed the Santa María del Puerto. Later the name was changed to the city which we know it today, ie, El Puerto de Santa Maria.

J'aime beaucoup la perspective que tu nous offres sur la Pergola qui semble trčs profonde sous ta lentille. J'aime beaucoup les ombres dessous.

I like the straight lines giving deepness to the image. The lone figure adds perspective. There is an interesting play of light and shadow, with a graphic effect from the floor tiles. The colors are very well rendered with excellent sharpness.

Hallo Angel. Die Komposition gefällt mir gut. Halb ist die Lady im Schatten, halb im Licht. Rechts und links wird sie flankiert von weißen Säulen, - und in diesem Sinne steht sie ziemlich allein. Zusätzlich schönes Licht und Farben. Viele Grüße, Wolfgang.
Have a nice WE

Excellent repetition of the columns & the trellis roof. Perspective has been well managed with the verticals placed in the centre leaving the sides to fall where they will. Good inclusion of a person for scale & nice color & saturation. Tfs!
