Learn about the history of 19th century Cadiz on this guided tour and discover the secrets of the Spanish Constitution of 1812, also known as "La Pepa".
Spanish Constitution Tour of Cádiz
The Spanish Constitution of 1812 was drafted in the city Cádiz. We'll meet in the Plaza de San Juan de Dios square to set off on our tour of 19th century Cádiz.
We'll pass by fascinating historical remains in the old town such as the Arco del Pópulo archway as we head to the Plaza de la Candelaria square, where we'll find the famous Café Royalty. This one-of-a-kind historically preserved romantic cafe is an example of the places where important figures used to meet in the 19th century.
To continue our tour we'll head down Calle Ancho street, admiring historic buildings such as the Birthplace of Manuel de Falla, one of the most famous Spanish composers of the first half of the 19th century. Then we'll make our way to the Plaza de San Antonio square, where we'll learn about the history of emblematic monuments such as the building where the National Lottery was founded in 1811, the Parroquía de San Antonio church and the iconic Casa-Palacio Aramburu palace.
Afterwards, we'll visit the San Felipe Neri Oratory: the building where the Spanish Constitution of 1812 was written. Who drafted it? What were its most controversial articles? What political and social developments did it induce? Find out the answer to these questions and many more on the tour!
We'll conclude the tour in the area of Plaza de España visiting the Cortes monument.
