Hello friends and colleagues , today I present a view up the street from the wolf , the city of Medina Sidonia , a city of history, in the province of Cádiz , Andalusia, hope you like it , then some letters on city .
The city of Medina Sidonia is a Spanish municipality located in the center of the province of Cádiz , Andalusia. It belongs to the district of La Janda . It is historical-artistic and Well of Cultural Interest 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 Cádiz to Atlantic coastline , which allows it to be spotted from a significant portion of the province, offering at the same time , the extraordinary panorama of the provincial area . 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 in terms of natural and scenic areas refers 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 related to the Tartessian culture. 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 the earlier Indian occupation . In the third century . C. Romans occupy the whole mainland that was previously in the hands of the Carthaginians. Around the first century a new urban center will occupy the entire space of what is now the Historic be built. By Augusto César Award , the city promotes its previous municipal status and becomes a colony with Roman law ( civitas optimo jure) . She was known by the name of Asido , Caesarina or completely as Asido Caesarina Augusta. Was located in the Province Ulterior Baetica , belonging to the convent legal Hispalensis ( with capital Hispalis ) . In the Visigoth Hispania was the 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 , the Umayyad Caliphate usually at the beginning of the Muslim conquest of the Iberian peninsula. It was the capital of Muslim named Cora Cora Sidonia ( also known as Arabic Saduna شذونة ) . Alfonso X the Wise reconquered the city September 22, 1264 , occupying the border against the Moorish Kingdom of Granada , which is why it appears in a medieval document with the name " Frontier " . In times of the Reconquista was home to several military orders. These include the Order of Santiago and the Order of Santa Maria. In 1440 became part of the Lordship of the Dukes of Medina Sidonia .

That looks like a very sunny spring day.
I like the patterns on the pavement and of course the beautiful architecture with special attention to the grille at the windows and the balconies. Very typical Andalusian.
Best regards, Paul

The street looks most interesting with its trees and its balconies. I presume the trees have been introduced to allow for street parking; they are a good idea.
Your viewpoint creates a good lead from f/g to b/g, assisted in no small measure by the group of pedestrians.
My warm regards,

An inage with a nice street mood and I like the flowers hanging from the roofs. The light gives good colors particularly to the pavement's patterns.

Beautiful lines in this, the lines of the buildings, the kerbs, the blue lines on the road, and all under such fine pleasing light too. The people give great life to the scene, and those trees make me smile, the angles they are at makes it look like they too are walking up this hill! Thanks for sharing another fine shot.

beautiful perspective with lovely colours and clarity. Great composition with the road, the row of houses and the sky filling the frame in three triangles. Beautiful details of the houses very well brought out. The group of people make the setting come alive.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

This was only April but it already looks very hot, like July or August. A very blue sky, bright light, small shadows and tourists dressed like at the height of summer. It's a nice street with very fine houses and a good atmosphere. The diagonal composition is attractive and you handled the rather harsh light elegantly.
saxo042 (37900) 2014-03-03 12:03
A very pleasant view here! For me, this looks like summer but I see it was taken in April. However, a very attractive picture with warmth and pleasure.

Hola amigo Ángel,
una vista muy agradable e interesante en este largo y pintoresco callejón. Tu composición es equilibrada y acogedora, la profundidad y claridad son excelentes y hay una gran abundancia de detalles que ocupan nuestra atención. Me gusta mucho el color brillant del cielo y el ambiente agradable. La alineación de las farolas en la sombra hace que parezcan encendidas. Nos has ofrecido una composición muy bonita de este lugar.
Felicidades!!!! y gracias!
Te deseo mejor desde BCN.
Un abrazo, Pili

an inviting, deep view into this lovely, quiet neighbourhood of Medina. A fine, vivid description of the architecture, the textures, the traffic and the little details that complete the character of this place. The human presence is agreeable and adds dynamism and reference. In my opinion, this picture is as much about the light as it is about the architecture. There's a fascinating brightness, the light is overwhelming, dropping from the sky, reflecting and bouncing everywhere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Silvio1953 (146613) 2014-03-04 12:20

Muy buena compisicion con esta diagonal que marcan todas estas fachadas de gran solera y el tipismo de esos grandes ventanales con rejas, todo ello da un bonito grafismo a la calle, veo que esta poblacion da mucho juego.
Muy bien la luminosidad y la nitidez, con unos hermosos colores.
Bien visto y mejor realizado. Me gusta
Ten un buen dia.
Un abrazo amigo mio.

Bonne perspective des maisons aux façades simple, joliment garnie avec les balcons et les lanternes, une rue animée que ce soit en voiture et ou a pieds, belle lumière, belle présentation

siento una verdadera fascinación por estos pueblos blancos andaluces, por la sencillez de su preciosa arquitectura tradicional, por esas deliciosas y tranquilas calles, donde debe ser un gran placer perderse y pasear relajadamente, tomando fotos como ésta.
Me gusta mucho la atmósfera que has captado, con los visitantes bajo un buen sol del sur.
El grafismo de los adoquines en la calle, colocados artísticamente, añade un buen extra estético a una composición ya de por sí muy bella.
Excelente trabajo, amigo mío.
PD: estoy esperando nuestra jubilación anticipada en Septiembre para poder visitar Jerez, Cádiz y una parte de Andalucía, quizás en la primavera del año que viene.
