Spain and Portugal revisited – 3 –

Another delve into the photo album. It’s not a photo album really. It’s some information buzzing about on my motherboard. I think.

Today, wander through the Caleta Gate with us, as we traverse the causeway to San Sebastian Castle and Island, Cadiz. It owes its name to a Chapel erected there in 1457 by Venetian sailors who had been confined to the island due to a plague. The Castle and parapet that surrounds the island were constructed in 1706, the causeway linking it to the mainland added in 1860. Presumably the plague had gone by then……

The large open space in front of the Caleta gate lends itself to displaying Sculpture.

The Caleta Gate and a tourist attacked by a killer tomato...

Miki heads out across the causeway. Should I mention high tide? Nah.

We arrive at the gates of San Sebastian to find it...locked up tight. Perhaps the plague has returned after all....

  2. I don;’t think so Shelley (I was just teasing!) but I wouldn’t like to go across it in a storm!
