Fodor's Expert Review Oratorio de San Felipe Neri

Cadiz Religious Building/Site/Shrine

A walk up Calle San José from the Plaza de Mina will bring you to this church, where Spain's first liberal constitution (known affectionately as La Pepa) was declared in 1812. It was here, too, that the Cortes (Parliament) of Cádiz met when the rest of Spain was subjected to the rule of Napoléon's brother, Joseph Bonaparte (more popularly known as Pepe Botella, for his love of the bottle). On the main altar is an Immaculate Conception by Murillo, the great sevillano artist who in 1682 fell to his death from a scaffold while working on his Mystic Marriage of St. Catherine in Cádiz's Chapel of Santa Catalina.
