Cadiz – Spain
Cádiz is a city and port in south-western Spain. It is the capital of the Province of Cádiz, one of eight which make up the autonomous community of Andalusia. In my Photo Gallery today I include just a selection of the photographs which I took whilst wandering around the city on a visit there in 2006.
There are narrow streets, beautiful tree-lined plazas, a magnificent seafront promenade adorned with wonderful fountains, paved with colourful majolica tiles, and surrounded by a variety of trees and flowers. Alameda Apodaca is a beautiful spot in the city of Cadiz, ideal for a stroll and to cool down on hot summer days. It is a broad avenue with cobbled streets, and a variety of cobblestones and majolica tiles forming geometrical designs.
