Jose Manuel's work


Hi, my name is Jose Manuel I'm going to write about our monuments in Sanlúcar de Barrameda but first a bit about its history...

 Our Monuments.ppt


*Sanlúcar de Barrameda was founded by the Tartessians.


*In the 8th century, the Normans entered the city along the Guadalquivir river and continued all the way to Seville.


*Also important was the presence of the Arabs, who called it Al Mars al-wadi, which means "river port".


*The city was conquered by King Alfonso X in the 13th century. King Sancho IV gave it to Alonso Pérez de Guzmán as a reward for his role in the defence of Tarifa. During this time, Sanlúcar enjoyed a great economic boom, as it was one of the most important trading centres. It was later proclaimed the seat of the Military Headquarters of the Ocean Sea, and the Fleet of the Indies settled there. The Pérez de Guzmán were lords of the city until 1646, year when it was incorporated into the Crown of Castile. It was then that a period of decadence began, due to the decline in sea traffic.


*The city did not recover from this until the 18th century, and then it was thanks to Godoy, a favourite of King Carlos IV.


*At the beginning of the 19th century, the city became the capital of the province of Cadiz, until the political instabilities of 1808. In the second half of the 19th century, agriculture began to develop, with the production of manzanilla sherry. Nowadays, those wines hold the Denomination of Origin Jerez-Xérès-Sherry and Manzanilla from Sanlúcar de Barrameda.


*Its historic quarter, which has been declared a Historic-Artistic site, shows traces of the city's medieval past, as well as whitewashed houses with red tiled roofs. Here, the buildings are covered with multicoloured tiles, the window and door-openings are framed and we begin to see entrance halls in the houses, as well as a preference for gardens, flowers, and courtyards.

*Up the Belén hill we find Las Covachas (15th century). Among the churches, the church of La Merced (17th century); the basilica of La Caridad, the church devoted to Sanlúcar's patron saint;

   Los Descalzas,              


the church of San Miguel



and the church of Nuestra Señora de la O, must be mentioned.


Next to the Rota gate of Rota and the Plaza de La Paz, we can see the castle of Santiago - a 15th-century fortress - the walls, the palace of Medina Sidonia and the palace of Montpensier.

There is a castle called Castillo the Santiago. We have a church that is: our parish of the o. At Easter all the steps fall into this parish. Also here are very good wines. In summer they celebrate the famous horse racing at the edge of the beach and it's very nice to see the horses running along the shore.

 Charles Bridge

Hello this is my work about Charles Bridge.

Charles Bridge (in czech Karlův most) is a famous historical bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague (the capital city of Czech Republic. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV., and finished in the beginning of 15th century. As the only means of crossing the river Vltava (Moldau), the Charles Bridge used to be the most important connection between the Old Town, Prague Castle and adjacent areas until 1841. Also this 'solid-land' connection made Prague important as a trade route between east and west Europe.

The bridge is 516 meters long and nearly 10 meters wide, resting on 16 arches shielded by ice guards. It is protected by three bridge towers, two of them on the Lesser Quarter side and the third one on the Old Tower side. During the night Charles Bridge is a quiet place. But during the day it changes its face into a very busy place, with painters, owners of kiosks and other traders alongside numerous tourists crossing the bridge.
