Hello friends and colleagues, today I present a photograph of the Wolf Street in the city of Medina Sidonia, a city of history, in the province of Cádiz view, I hope you like it, then a few letters of the city.
The city of Medina-Sidonia is a Spanish municipality located in the center of the province of Cádiz, Andalusia. It belongs to the region of La Janda.
Is a Historic-Artistic and Cultural
The mountain on which it is located is called the Cerro del Castillo, which is the highest elevation of the entire western third of the province, from the foothills of the Sierra de Cadiz to the Atlantic coastline, allowing you to be spotted since an important part of the province, offering, at the same time, the extraordinary panorama of provincial surface. The city is oriented towards the Bay of Cadiz, which is why it is known as the Balcony of the Bay.
A small part of the municipality asidonense belongs to the Natural Park of the Acorns, one of the most valuable areas in terms of nature and landscape concerns in Andalusia. The term also hosts much of the route of the Green Corridor of the two bays, a greenway linking the Bay of Cadiz and Algeciras Bay.
The first settlements in the area of which we have evidence, dating from the Late Bronze Age. Found in the Cerro de las Madres a lot of fragments of handmade ceramics and some stone tools. It seems that these people were in relation to culture tartésica.5
Then takes place the arrival of Phoenician colonists from Sidon, which will found a city (with the same name as their city of origin) on the basis of earlier Indian occupation.
In the third century. C. Romans occupy the entire peninsula was formerly in the hands of the Carthaginians. Around the first century will build a new town center that will occupy the entire space of what is now the Historic. By Augusto César Award, the city promotes its former municipal status and becomes entitled Roman colony (civitas optimo jure). It was known by the name of Asido, Caesarina, or completely as Caesarina Asido Augusta. It was situated in the Province Ulterior Baetica, belonging to legal convent Hispalensis (with capital in Hispalis).
In the Visigoth Hispania was also provincial capital and episcopal see of the Catholic Church, then known as Asidona, suffragan of the Archdiocese of Seville which included the former Roman province of Andalusia in the diocese of Hispania.
In 712 the city was conquered by Musa ibn Nusair, commander of the Umayyad Caliphate, at the beginning of the Muslim conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. It was the capital of Muslim Cora Cora called Sidonia (also known as Arabic Saduna شذونة). Alfonso X the Wise recaptured the city on September 22, 1264, occupying the border against the Moorish Kingdom of Granada, which is why it appears in a medieval document with the name "de la Frontera".
At the time of the Reconquista was home to several military orders. These include the Order of Santiago and the Order of St. Mary.
In 1440 became part of the Lordship of the Dukes of Medina-Sidonia.

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue au centre de la rue qui nous donne l'impression de descendre vers la vallée entre deux belles rangées de maisons. L'effet entonnoir apporte beaucoup de profondeur à l'ensemble qui est d'une grande netteté.

Outstanding view between houses. Excellent deep DOF, superb arrangement in portrait format. The light and clarity is also very good. Well done.

The view between the buildings with this winding path leads the eye to the grenn valley in an interesting tunnel effect. Nive architecture of the houses under a good light.

I really like the architecture of this street, and of course the view down the road which leads the eye in perfectly! The slight twist in the shape of the road adds nice extra interest too, and you got the whole scene under really attractive light conditions. I also really like that there is so much interest in the far distance, that windfarm is a great focal point off in the distance. Thanks as always

Una fantastica composicion de este preciosa calle, me encanta esa sucesion de fachadas, todas con el mismo tipo de ventanas y rejas, tipo miradores, la perspectiva de la calle en cuesta abajo da un grandioso DOF, con los campos al fondo por encima de los tejados.
Muy buen colorido muy natural.
Una imagen muy luminosa y con una óptima nitidez.
Disfruta del fin de semana.
Yn abrazo, amigo mio.

has buscado un eficaz encuadre para magnificar la belleza de esta arquitectura y la profundidad de la imagen, con una bonita perspectiva de la calle y la visión del precioso paisaje al fondo.
El equilibrio luz-sombras está bien gestionado, y eso no era fácil debido a la blancura de las casas, y me gusta la sensación de estar paseando por esta bonita y empinada calle adoquinada.
El resultado es una composición potente y muy atractiva.

I like very much the depth of this view and its brightness as well as the clarity and mildness of the shady parts. I also like the diversity of the perspectives, the interesting architecture and the vast view that extends ahead. The sharp textures add to the vividness of this setting already rendered so vibrant by the strong, clear light. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
