Voyage to Antiquity- Page 3

PORTS of CALL - Cadiz, Seville, Spain
From Carthage, Oriana set sail for Cadiz from which port Anne and I were to do a tour which would take us to the City of Seville and also to visit the site of the Spanish Pavillion which was built for the 1929 Latin American and Spanish World Expo. The site, now used for government departments as well as tourism is a real tour-de-force of ceramic tiles. Amazing place.
