Photographer's Note

Today I finally rescue this pictures I made almost two year ago, but my computer crash. Latter of some time I finally rescue all the information there and this picture and other came with this, so I feel happy to rescue it. I took this inside of the Cathedral of Cadiz.
I add too some information about this place:

The Roman Catholic diocese of Cadiz y Ceuta is a diocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in Spain. The diocese is a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Seville.[1]

Its jurisdiction covers nearly all the civil province of Cadiz; only a few places, like Sanlucar, belong to the diocese of Seville, or, like Grazalema, to the diocese of Malaga. Cadiz (369,382) is the residence of the bishop.

Cadiz was raised by Urban IV to episcopal rank in 1263 at the request of king Alfonso X, a year after its Reconquista on the Moors.[2] Its first bishop was Fray Juan Martinez. After the Christians had won from the Moors the Plaza (stronghold) de Algeciras, the ordinaries of Cadiz bore the title of Bishop of Cadiz and Algeciras, granted by Clement VI in 1352.

The see counted amongst its prelates in 1441 Cardinal Juan de Torquemada, an eminent Dominican theologian jurisconsult, who took a leading part in the Councils of Basle and Florence, and defended in his "Summe de Ecclesiβ" the direct power of the pope in temporal matters. By the Concordat of 1851 the diocese of Ceuta, also suffragan of Seville, was suppressed and incorporated with that of Cadiz, whose bishop was regularly Apostolic Administrator of Ceuta.
