Hello friends and colleagues, today I present another nice view of a street in Cadiz, with an interesting stone building oyster. Hope you like it, then some letters on the city.
Cadiz is a Spanish town and municipality located in the province of Cádiz, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, in the extreme southwest of continental Europe. It is the capital of the province and along with Jerez de la Frontera is one of two principal cities in the metropolitan area of the Bay of Cadiz, Jerez, third core population of Andalusia and one of the most economically and industrially active in Andalusia Spain. Also conforms with the municipalities of Chiclana de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria, Jerez de la Frontera, Puerto Real, and San Fernando Rota the Association of Municipalities of Cadiz Bay.
Today Cadiz is known for his long and influential history, one of the oldest cities of Western Europe and archaeological remains dating back 3100 years, not only nationally but also for its importance in processes such as the Punic Wars, Romanisation of Iberia, the discovery and conquest of America, the establishment of the liberal regime in Spain with its first constitution and its subsequent influence of this for the constitutions of their independence, the former Spanish colonies.
The story itself Cádiz is a city marked by its military and commercial strategic location, halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. This is one of the oldest Phoenician settlements west. Since its founding by the Tyrians, according to the classical tradition 80 years after the Trojan War (1104 a.), Was a city facing the sea and trade. Hannibal left it to the conquest of Italy and Julius Caesar himself was awarded the title of civitas federata the Roman Senate. The city reached great prosperity in Roman times. They are built amphitheatres, aqueducts and becomes the second most populous city of the Empire for a short period. During this time living in the city more than five hundred equites (a caste of notable citizens), rivaling Padua and Rome itself.
During the crisis of the third century of the Roman Empire, the same drop this and Visigothic conquest, the city entered a significant decline, entering a dark time and losing the provincial capital and its commercial and strategic importance. The collapse of the commercial networks of the Empire, Gades as necessary to any coastal city, did most. The open style great city of antiquity slowly gave way to a smaller walled city, style common in the Middle Ages. Desperate economic necessity, many of these ancient inhabitants of Gades were forced to give up basic rights for protection of large landowners and peoples from the interior, for example Asido Caesarina Augusta. The former became a free class of citizens called colonus half.
The city was conquered by the Byzantines in 522 BCE, conquered by the Visigoths in 620 and conquered by the troops of Tariq ibn Ziyad in 711, with the battle of Guadalete. During that time it demolished the statue of Hercules, in the temple of Hercules.
The reconquest of Cadiz is included in the recapture of the Guadalquivir (1243-1262), incorporated in 1264 to the Spanish crown. Not until the Reconquista when establishing in the Bay of Cadiz shipyards Royal Crown of Castile and the beginning of the age of discovery, when the city emerges with great momentum. Many left their ports discoverers like Christopher Columbus or Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, and in colonial conquerors, who have enriched and enabled, centuries later, the creation of a bourgeois society, liberal and revolutionary. As a city that had the monopoly of trade with America, home of the House of Trade and Indian fleet, was the scene of numerous naval battles and creating the first Spanish constitution.
In 1766 Carlos III definitely promoted the emancipation of Lion Island with the founding and naming of the first consistory in the new independent villa by Royal Decree on the name of the Royal Villa Isla de Leon.
In decline, after his involvement in the War of Independence and sunk after the loss of Cuba, the city has not stopped growing in population (in this sense of benefiting rural exodus, especially from the Janda), until the early nineties and especially from the period 1996-2010, a period in which around 20,000 have left the city of Cadiz. So far it has regained its importance at the state level.

I like the composition with the building on the right directing the viewer's attention toward the attractive façade in the background. The elegant lamp is a nice bonus. The lighting is ideal to bring out the colours and architectural detail.

Nice scene from this this very historic city of Cadiz. Excellent lighting which shows off the lovely warm colours of the houses. Good POV using the cobbled street and the lamp post as a lead into the shot. Lovely presentation . Thanks.

I love the sense of the rising hill that you captured here, and the beautiful building at the top. The purple stripe running down the path on the right and the yellow on left makes a surprising and pleasant color addition. All caught under lovely light.
Thanks also for the excellent note.

Excellent sharpness and side-lighting that reveals some of the textures of the flagstone paved street. The curved sidewalks add nice lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Soft pastel colours and a nice subtle warm cold color contrast between the red and blue grey. Tfs!

Hola amigo Angel.
Este precioso rincon gaditano se habia pasado sin comentar, me gusta como has captado las dos fachadas, una en perspectiva lateral y la otra frontalmente, formando un angulo de gran encanto, la farola es un buen complemento.
La calle encuesta ayuda a obtener el bonito angulo.
Buena luminosidad y nitidez, con unos vibrantes colores.
Muy buena ejecucion y ojo.
que disfrutes de una buena tarde de estas bonitas de otoño.
