In Cadiz you can still find those old barber shops only for men, owned by old style barbers, where you can get your hair cut, be shaved.... and have a nice chat with the barber!
The one I went to this time is about to be closed (a "For Hire" sign is on the door already), is a bit ruined and the age of the customers is close to 80-90. I enjoyed my last stay there, as it will probably be my really LAST time there. New "design" haircut shops, unisex and so are opening all around, so these old barbershops will disappear soon I am afraid.
I'm not a good chatter, so this time I lietened carefully to all the conversations around. There was a sense of decay and death in the air... the customers (all of them in the 80s) talked about gone things, gone persons & friends, gone shops... a perfect plot for a Luchino Visconti's film!!! :-)

The narrow streets of the old town are lined with small shops, this one caught my eye it was quite quaint. The candy was sold from jars as it would have been done in times past, along with all the colours, I thought it quite photogenic.

Before the big shopping Malls and El Corte Ingles gathered all the shopping activity out of town, this narrow street has traditionally been a main shopping area in Cadiz. The most important fashion, furniture, shops, bookshops... were (and some still are) located here.

You're sure to find a great shop that sells local ceramics or antiques, but what I was most interested was the food. I found a place that had a great assortment of pastries, cookies and candies and I asked the lady who worked there what was typical of Cadiz. She told me to try the turron, which is a nougat of some kind that is sweet and chewy and slightly nutty in taste that was really good!

From the area around the Plaza de las Flores taking the road to the right hand side of the Post Office is a shopping area. All kinds of shops selling clothes, shoes, books.

We were told it is one of the oldest covered in Spain.
Nos dijeron que era el mas antiguo cubierto de España
