Docking at Cadiz, Spain

 

Docking at Cadiz, Spain

Docking at Cadiz, Spain – 1812.

Docking at Cadiz, Spain. from The Independence Of The Seas. The road in front of The Cruise Terminal is busy, but traffic lights make it easy and safe for crossing. (It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the town centre).
Coming across a beautiful monument that, celebrates the founding of the 1812 Spanish constitution, one of the earliest in the world. In the centre of the plaza is a tall, central pillar of white marble. Surrounded by some shrubs and trees. Very Peaceful place, that takes your breath away, as you appreciate the history.

Docking at Cadiz, Spain – Old Town. 

The old town, road splinters off into narrow streets. That lead to the centre and a couple of minor highways that, encompass the old town. At times, there were cars that would use the small road (In the above photo you can see, us walking on the road). This meant, we had to stand in doorways and, wait for them to pass safely.

Docking at Cadiz, Spain – Spanish Lady. 

My husband (Kevin) made me aware of a beautiful Spanish lady, who was looking over her stunning balcony. The Lady’s balcony was full of plants and flowers, she waved and, blow kisses at us, from her balcony. Asking “her if I could take her picture”. She Nodded yes I took some pictures of her. I wanted to share them with you, as she melted my heart.
The Old town Cadiz is a collection of plazas joined by a series of narrow streets. Nominally, the ‘main square’ would be Plaza San Juan de Dios which is home to the Ayuntamiento (council) building or the Plaza de la Cathedral, but plazas Candelaria, Mina, and San Antonio could be considered your focal points too.
Starting from Plaza San Juan de Dios, it is a short walk through the shopping district to the Cathedral. Walking up the Campania to Plaza Libertas, home to one of the oldest indoor markets in Spain.

Docking at Cadiz, Spain – The Market.

You can get some lovely souvenirs in the market or, in the shops that was very reasonable. The whole market was surrounded by beautiful shrubs, trees, and flowers. The streets of Cadiz, are very clean with no rubbish. I never saw Zara, but I was informed that Zara is in the new shopping plaza. (gutted)

Docking at Cadiz, Spain – The Beach. 

Playa La Caleta Beach – have won plenty of awards, including being recognized as one of Europe’s best urban.  A popular beach with, both tourists and locals. There was a very busy Yoga class on the beach, underneath a wooden cabana. I’m afraid that I did not see, any sun-loungers that you could hire. (This photo was taken at 10.30 am in the morning. Just to give you a guide to how busy the beach gets in the summer months)
