Castles & Temples
Bastions & Defensive Walls
This work gave me the opportunity to learn a lot about Cadiz history by getting to were it all happened. The arrival of the Phoenicians and their temple to Melqart (former Hercules), the defensive walls built by Alfonso X around the city using the stones that were left by the Romans, the attacks by Sir Francis Drake and centuries after by Napoleon’s army. Very exciting!!
