Cádiz, España by Aya Okawa

Cádiz, España

The coastal city of Cadiz, occupied since the time of the Phoenicians, is considered one of the oldest cities in Europe. Roman ruins found in the city have been dated to 200 BC, and the local salt collecting operations have been active from Phoenician and Punic times. The city played a major strategic role for the Byzantines, Visigoths and Moors, and its ports launched such explorer as Christopher Columbus.

I took this photo from a small plane, circling over the city at sunset to catch the golden light.
