Cadiz City - Iglesia de San Felipe Neri

A place of pilgrimage for democracy-loving Spaniards, since it was here that parliament gathered in 1812 to proclaim a liberal constitution and it was here that the Cortes of Cadiz met when the rest of Spain was subjected to the rule of Napoleon's brother, Joseph Bonaparte, more popularly known as Pepe Botella for the love of the bottle. On the main alter is an Immaculate Conception by Murillo, the great Sevillian artist who in 1682 fell to his death from a scaffolding while working on his Mystic Marriage of St. Catherine in the Chapel of Santa Catalina.
