Some of our friends and links, and a few articles on Cádiz

 

Torre Tavira is a must-see attraction in Cadiz. It’s one of the old 18th Century watchtowers and is also the highest, with a tremendous view of the old city from its top terrace. It has a Camera Obscura that shows the city of Cadiz live in a white dish screen. Being ‘inside the camera’ is an excellent way to get your head around the simple concept of photography, and we like to take our attendees there on the very first day.

Javier Reina Gutierrez is a talented Cadiz designer and architectural photographer whose input we always value. Have a look at his work!

Coutours is a London partner of ours, offering bespoke tours of London and also some short photography courses. They offer both ‘ready-to-walk’ guided walking tours and tailor made London tours.

Cadigrafia is a design and branding agency in Cadiz: “Construimos marcas, desde un pequeño rincón del sur, últimamente orientados a la gastronomía y el turismo, una maravilla poder disfrutar de pequeños placeres durante nuestro trabajo. Diseño, imagen, campañas de publicidad, exposiciones,eventos etc.. son algunas de las cosas que sabemos hacer.”

Polar Fokus Photo Festival in Tromsø, Norway is an inspiring event for photo enthusiasts. It takes place in October every year. Gry was a guest photographer there in 2010 and we hope to visit again this year. The site is in NORSK, so mostly interesting for our Norwegian friends!

Spanish language and photography classes, don´t miss it!

This article on Cadiz by Cristina Martínez Sacristán is a bit more down to earth.

Cadiz seen from the above-mentioned Torre Tavira is an interesting piece, in Spanish. We always bring our visitors there.

This one is also about Torre Tavira, and about the experience of going up the tower. It’s so interesting that with a 360 degree view, all travel features seem to use the same angle on Cadiz. This one starts with the same old shot towards the Cathedral and Playa Victoria, but it shows other views as well.
