Spain

Conil gets a taste of Cádiz!

After a day of rest on Monday for the Fiesta del Virgen Carmen Holiday, we were right back into the swing of things. There is still so much to do and see!  After class today we went on an excursion to the city of Cádiz, the oldest continually inhabited city on the Iberian Peninsula. A peninsula, Cádiz has beautiful ocean views on all sides. We visited a “Camera Obscura” at the top of the Torre Tavira, the former home of a well-known merchant family, where we saw all of Cadiz projected on a giant dome for a panoramic look at the city.  Afterwards we had some free time to explore the city and its narrow cobblestone streets. We walked through the beautiful Plaza de Flores, a market that sells every type of flower you could imagine and then we visited the beach. This waterfront area, which resembles Havana, Cuba so much that it has stood in for that city in movies, most notably in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Right now we´re headed on the bus back home to Conil. Stay tuned for more fun adventures as tomorrow is movie night and Saturday we have an excursion to Gibraltar. Be sure to like us on Facebook!girls in Conil
