Save the Cordoba Mosque:
please, sign the petition.

Salvemos la Mezquita de Córdoba · Por una Mezquita-Catedral de todos

The Catholic church in Spain has been exploiting to it's financial advantage the World Heritage Site of the Cordoba Mosque (Mezquita) for decades.

They now even pretend to turn this public site into church estate. They actually have already banned the term Mezquita (Mosque) to impose religious monopoly, while the Mezquita is actually one of the few great universal paradigms of harmony between cultures (main reason why it was declared World Heritage in the first place).

Public pressure is needed towards the government of Andalusia to keep this monument as public property instead of loosing it to private, christian dominion.
Save the Mezquita: please, sign the petition.

Cadiz city

With it’s around three thousand years of history, Cadiz is the oldest city of Europe, where Fenicians, Carthagenes, and of course Romans have had their settlements. It is an open port to the Atlantic and it has it's proper beach.

Playa de la Caleta, the Cadiz city beach.

Built on what was once an island, Cadiz today has two principal parts: the central or historic quarter with narrow streets and plazas, completely surrounded by fortified walls which constantly bring to mind the city’s maritime history.
The newer part of the city, outside the walls, linked to the old city by the famous Puertas de Tierra, has neighbourhoods of high buildings clustered around the Central Avenue, which seems to be constantly in a state of rebuilding, mainly because there is no more land to expand outwards.

Cadiz has an essentially urban and maritime feel about it. Because it lacks any notable countryside or mountains around it, the Atlantic dominates the surroundings of Cadiz.
