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 Doña 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.

Muy bonita imagen amigo mio.

El tiempo de fondo y tiro.
Este es su regalo, se da la vuelta y pensar.
El verde "Odessa" y el estilo de la escritura ... el fondo de la bahía, el cielo.
Largas sombras y luz cálida.

la luz de la tarde ha creado una atmósfera magnífica y un precioso juego de sombras sobre la deliciosa pérgola, la elegante balaustrada, y el pavimento de este agradable paseo marítimo.
La perspectiva de estos elementos y de las farolas es profunda, me gusta la fuga de líneas hacia un punto descentrado a la izquierda del encuadre, con la que obtienes un buen dinamismo gráfico.
Y los colores bien saturados dan una gran potencia cromática y una bonita luminosidad al conjunto.
Todo funciona a un gran nivel, buen trabajo, amigo mío.

la cosa che più mi colpisce di questa bella immagine sono i colori davvero intensi ma no pensanti
bella l'inquadratura che permette la corsa della terrazza e a destra lo scenario del porticciolo
ti auguro un bell'agosto
