The year 2012 is perfect for visiting Cádiz because all year round this city in Andalusia is celebrating that on 19 March 1812 the first liberal constitution in Europe was approved, popularly known as "La Pepa". Many activities will take place, such as historical re-enactments, concerts, food tasting sessions... An event not to be missed!
Cadiz will be an attractive destination for 2012 thanks to this event, which will also include shows, parades, conferences, boat shows, processions…
The city will be the Ibero-American Capital of Culture, with activities such as the premiere of the play State of Siege by Albert Camus, a concert by Daniel Barenboim's West Eastern-Divan Orchestra, a set of concerts called "Music in the Courts of Cadiz", the 8th Ibero-American Biennial of Architecture, etc.
Cádiz will also recover emblematic places such as the Oratory of San Felipe Neri Oratory, where "La Pepa" - the first constitution that paved the way for modernity - was drafted.
Many other cities in Spain are also commemorating this important date with a series of cultural events, including exhibitions and music festivals. (taken from Spain Info)
