Jerez de la Frontera

Jerez has world-renowned attractions that make our city one of the most complete and appealing destinations in Andalucia; the horses, wine, brandy and Flamenco are typical of Andalucia and Spain, and are differentiating features that fully define and give identity to our city.

Jerez offers numerous possibilities: the incredible equestrian shows at the Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre (the Andalusian School of Equestrian Art) and the Yeguada Hierro del Bocado (the Hierro del Bocado Stud Farm); a visit to the incomparable Jerez wineries, "cathedrals" in which wine and brandy are born, nurtured and aged in silence; the daily pleasure of enjoying the purest Flamenco, its Old Centre, declared a Conjunto Monumental Histórico-Artístico (official Complex of Historical-Artistic Monuments), in which churches, old public edifices and unique buildings can be discovered amongst orange trees and fountains throughout the squares, streets and nooks and crannies; also numerous are the museums and heritage centres that feature fighting bulls, horses, Flamenco or wine, together with others of great interest in which our tradition and heritage are captured.

Dating from the eighteenth century and raised on the site of an Arab mosque built during the Muslim occupation, the Cathedral is a perfect combination of the Gothic, Baroque and Neo-classical style.
This is the oldest monument in the city. One of the most important cultural attractions of the town is El Alcazar, that dates from the 12th century and has retained to the present day a large part of its original construction.
Jerez therefore offers us its Mosque, the Oil Mill, the Arab Baths and the Keep, the Octagonal and the Ponce de Leon Towers, the Patio de Armas, the two Gateways giving access to the enclosure, and part of the City Walls surrounding it.
Morevoer the 18th-centure Palace of Villavicencio was subsequently built over the ruins of the original Islamaic palace, where the CAMERA OBSCURA is located and from where we can enjoy by means of a simple optic principle, a real and in motion bird's eye view of the town and its surroundings.
Jerez is world famous for its sherry wines, a natural product which is unique in the world thanks to a combination of the local climate, chalky soil, palomino grapes and the special ageing process in the wine vaults or bodegas. This combination of circumstances is only to be found in the triangle known as the Marco de Jerez, formed by the towns of Jerez, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda.
There are several different types of sherry: finos, olorosos and amontillados which create a great variety of styles and favours. These wines are aged in casks of American oak known as 'butts' using the system of criaderas and soleras which is unique to the sherry making process. It is possible to have a guided tour of some of these bodegas and to enjoy some wine tasting in these veritable cathedrals scattered around the town.
