“La Pepa” Bicentenary of First Spanish Constitution

Cadiz, situated in southern Spain, is celebrating the bicentenary of Spain’s first Constitution. This Constitution was signed in Cadiz on March 19, 1812 and established principles like national sovereignty, the separation of powers and freedom of the press for the first time. This very important date is being celebrated in the Andalusian town of Cadiz with a lot of cultural and political celebrations and the assistance of the Spanish King. The streets are full of visitors enjoying the street performances. Flamenco performances will take place at the famous theatre “El Falla”.

Due to Saint Joseph’s day on 19th March, the people of Cadiz call the Constitution “La Pepa”, as the Spanish nickname for Joseph is “Pepe”. In Spanish the word Constitution is female and therefore ends in Pepa instead of Pepe.

Hansa Realty recommends visiting this festivity and take part of this important event.
