La Isla de las Cortes City Tour shows us all the monuments and historical sites of San Fernando that played an important role in the Cortes of 1810. Years later, it would give way to the first Constitution of the history of Spain.
We start the tour in the Church of El Carmen. After the yellow fever that struck Cadiz again in 1813, the meetings of the Cortes were held at night, once the masses and cults were finished.
Continuing along Real Street, we find the Colegio Compañía de María, which hosted the Regency of the Kingdom during the war.
After a walk of a few minutes we will get to the Town Hall, the largest in all of Andalusia. It was there where all the deputies of the Courts met for the first time on September 24, 1810.
Following the narrow street that we find to the right of the City Hall, we will see the Royal Theatre of Las Cortes. Until the first transfer to Cádiz back in 1811, it was here where the different sessions were held. Right next to this theatre we find a museum, the so-called “Parliamentarian Interpretive Centre”. Everything that happened in San Fernando in the years of the Cortes was announced here.
La Isla de las Cortes City Tour ends with a visit to San Fernando’s Main Church. It was in this religious building where the deputies, after the first meeting in the City Council, came to pronounce an oath. From this act there is a famous painting by the painter Casado de Alisal.
All this interesting La Isla de las Cortes City Tour has quotes and phrases of illustrious people on plates placed on the ground. A fact occurred in San Fernando that has marked the Spanish democracy.
