Jerez de la Frontera, a charismatic Andalusian town with an international reputation for its excellent sherry and brandy production. With so much to explore, Jerez is a scintillating treasure trove of interesting attractions.
Jerez is situated in the province of Cadiz in Andalusia, southern Spain. Jerez is about 34 kilometres away from the city of Cadiz which it is connected to by the E-5 motorway. Jerez is the perfect touring base for Malaga, Granada and (by ferry rather than road) Tangier in northern Africa.
Where to visit when time is at a premium is an unenviable and difficult task. Here are some ideas to help you out. All tours of the sherry producing region of Jerez should include a tasting session at one of the hundred or so Bodegas. For this a trip to the region’s north or west is necessary, to the district earmarked as the ‘Sherry Triangle’, where its points are the towns of Jerez, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda.
A trip over to the ancient Moorish fortress, the Alcazar is guaranteed to reward you with many impressive sights. The Alcazar was once the home of the caliph of Seville and is equipped with a stunning eight sided mosque along with elaborate bathing quarters until claimed by Christian knights in the thirteenth century. Additionally on the site is the magnificent Palacio de Villavicencio as well as a camera obscura. The views from the Alcazar of the surrounding countryside and sea views are as stunning as the castle itself.
Within close proximity of the Royal Equestrian School (which we’ll come to later) is the brilliant Clock Museum. Jerez’ internationally renown Museo de los Relojes is situated within the Palacio de Atalaya, and has on display around three hundred time telling implements dating as far back as the 17th century. It is especially good if you are there for the midday for all the clocks sing away to their hearts’ content at this designated time. What a show of chimes!
Lovers of Gothic architecture should head over to Jerez’ old quarter. Exercising care as well as those calf muscles, that you don’t get lost and confused amid the maze like streets and passageways, you will feel as though you have stepped back in time. Worthy of a visit in the old quarter is the old Archaeological Museum based from within an eighteenth century mansion house. Pieces inside date back to the seventh century BC as well as brilliant ceramic collections by the early Moors.
A delightful example of local Gothic architecture is presented by the old church of Iglesia de San Miguel. You can’t miss it for the bell tower is decked in white and blue locally produced tiling and the church is one of the oldest buildings in town dating back to the fifteenth century.
What with its origins of the ‘flamenco’ here in Jerez, it is suitably fitting that a flamenco museum is situated in the city. The Centro Andaluz de Flamenco is a contemporary styled museum where multimedia exhibitions are fully utilized to demonstrate the dynamics and history of this very famous Spanish dance.
One of the main attractions in Jerez is that of its Dancing Horses showcase. Emulating the Vienna Spanish Riding School to good effect is the Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. The shows take place on a Thursday at around lunch time when crowds gather to celebrate the skills and showmanship of the troupe.
