Cadiz – See King of Spain’s Beard

So a day looking round Cadiz. A lovely city. In fact the oldest city in Europe. It has something in common with my hometown of Bristol. It became wealthy as a result of trade with the Spanish colonies in South America and then went into decline when that dried up. Columbus sailed from here on his second and fourth voyages.
A beautiful day for looking around a beautiful city. It was pretty windy with some extremely strong gusts so that I was feeling pleased that I wasn’t cycling in it. I was rather less pleased when one of the gusts diverted a large water fountain in my direction and gave me a good soaking but I soon dried off in the sunshine. The old cathedral took over a previous mosque and the new one is reminiscent of St Paul’s based on a large dome.
Hope to be in Seville in two days time.
