Geocache Description:

Con motivo del centenario de la Constitución de 1812 y aprovechando el solar dejado tras el derribo de las murallas del frente del puerto, se decidió levantar un gran monumento homenaje a la labor de las Cortes durante el sitio francés sobre Cádiz, y al texto constitucional que logró poner los cimientos de un nuevo orden político y social en España.

Bajo la denominación de Monumento al Sitio y las Cortes de Cádiz, su construcción comenzó a principios de 1912 bajo la dirección del arquitecto Modesto López Otero y con esculturas de Aniceto Mariñas, auqnue no fue inaugurado hasta 1929.

Con forma de hemiciclo o semicírculo, tratando de representar la forma de las salas de Cortes, presenta diversos relieves y representaciones iconográficas que referencia al trascendental hecho histórico y los que esto supuso para el devenir de Cádiz y la nación.

Under the name of Memorial Site and the Cortes of Cadiz, its construction began in early 1912 under the direction of architect Modesto López Otero and Aniceto Marinas sculpture; although it was not inaugurated until 1929.
