The Bicentenary of Spain's First Constitution
In 2012 Cádiz is celebrating the Bicentenary of Spain’s First Constitution. This Constitution was signed in Cádiz on March 19th, 1812 and is also known as "La Pepa" because it was adopted on Saint Joseph’s Day.
"La Pepa" established principles such as national sovereignty, the separation of powers and freedom of the press for the first time.
That is why the year of 2012 is a very special year for the city of Cádiz and the whole of Spain.
