|This was the view from the apartment I rented, pretty spectacular!|
I visited the Museum of Cadiz, Plaza de Mina, which contains the merged Fine Arts and Archaeological Museums.

Fine Arts are located on the first floor (second in North America). A couple of my favourites.
Second floor holds the Contemporary Arts pieces which for me were amusing, bizarre and likeable.
|Not the best picture, sculpture inside a glass case, but does speak for itself, he's chained to a TV.|
|Pure Spanish, arch behind, palm tree, mantilla...|
|Pure whimsy! Part of a large collection of like paintings, it was hard to decide which to photograph.|
Aside from the food tour I ate well in the city, often around the central market where restaurants line both sides of it and for a stroll afterward, the flower market was close by which was a delight. My favourite was called Anca Lidia.
|Prawns in garlic, hot pepper, butter and hake fish wrapped in a cornmeal coating, absolute yum!|
|Still decorated for Carnival, there was confetti all over the sidewalks and streets, I arrived the day after it finished (on purpose).|
|I loved the detail on this building and that street lamp is what type hang throughout the streets here.|
|Santa Cruz Church|
|Okay, what is this? It is a water fountain for adults, children and dogs, one of many installed recently in the city. I liked that it was designed for children and dogs too.|
