Walking on the Wall of San Carlos, Cadiz

This defense wall of Cadiz was built in the 18th century and marks the border of the old city. It is very wide and still armed with cannons. There is however no enemy to be fought. Below we see the clear green water of the Mediterranean Sea. It is a pleasure to walk on the wall, enjoy the sun, flowers and trees.

Deze verdedigingsmuur in Cadiz werd gebouwd gedurende de 18de eeuw en markeert de grens van de oude stad. De muur is heel breed en nog steeds bewapend met kanonnen. Er is echter geen vijand meer voor deze wapens. Onder ons zien we de helder groene Middellandse Zee. Het is een plezier hier op de muur te wandelen, te genieten van de zon, bloemen en bomen.
