Hello friends and colleagues, today I present a view of the facade of the City of Cadiz on a nice spring day, I hope you like it, then some interesting letters on the building.
The current City of Cadiz was built in 1799 on the bases and location of previous Town Hall and is the result of two stages: first, neoclassical, initiated in 1799 by Torcuato Benjumeda, and a second for the Elizabethan style of Garcia Poplar in 1861 and would affect the interiors.
"The face that presents the main facade of the Town Hall is the result of two major reforms, a neoclassical work and other Elizabethan Benjumeda conducted Manuel García del Alamo in 1861." Its composition is based on a large central body, composed of four Ionic columns, with garlands between scrolls and Attic base. The basement will cushion and side bodies decorated with pilasters of the same order of two rows flanking veins. On the horizontal between pairs of overalls and presents rampant garlands discs reproduce reliefs reasons Phoenician coins. Over the central body opens a fronton whose apex line exceeds sill. In the center tower rises three bodies, first square, with a vain on every front. A balustrade with shots transit serves the second octagonal. Balustrade tops together with eight other columns supporting a small hemispherical dome.
