2 Bedroom Apt. in Heart of Jerez de la Frontera,
Jerez De La Frontera, Andalusia, Spain
Additional Location Information
Jerez is known for it's Sherry, Flamenco and the famous dancing Andalucian horses but there is also so much more to explore.
Jerez de la Frontera is situated in the heart of Andalucía, about an hour and a half from the magnificent monuments of Seville and half an hour from the Atlantic-lapped shores of the Costa de la Luz. It’s an ideal place for a week of Spanish culture, only two and a half hours on average from the UK.
The nearest airport is Jerez folllowed by Seville for esay access to bus or train to Jerez. You can also fly to Gibraltar (1 hr away by car) or Malaga.
Jerez is well know throughout the world as the crux of the sherry producing triangle of Andalucía. If you’ve ever wondered where you’re Christmas tipple of Harvey’s Bristol Cream comes from, now you know.
Jerez is home to dozens of bodegas, including the famous Gonzalez Byass, well-known for its Tio Pepe brand. I recommend you visit a bodega, there are many tours in English, German, French and of course Spanih. Some of the bodegas, require advance booking, so check before you go.
Other highlights of Jerez include the Fundación Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre (The Royal Andalucian School of Equestiran Art – www.realescuela.org), known all over the world for it’s show "How the Andalucian Horses Dance", a unique exhibition of horsemanship. The show takes place every Tuesday and Thursday, and Fridays in August only, at 12pm. You must pre-book this show.
The Alcázar, is a 12th Century Islamic Fortress. You can visit the gardens, punctuated with cooling water features and filled with the scent of spring and summer flowers in a cascading kaleidoscope of blooming colour. There is shade in the Arab Baths, the Mezquita and the Oil Mill which are very interesting.
Any visit to the Alcázar must – without fail - take in the Camara Oscura, an innovative feature that really is worth the few Euros it costs to see. You are taken to the highest point of the Palacio Villavicencio, another highlight of the Alcázar complex. Here, you are ushered into a private room with about 10 or 12 other people, and gathered round what looks like a large white satellite dish. The doors are closed, the lights turned off, and your guide introduces you to this innovate ‘camera’ which involves refracting lenses and results in a panoramic, real-time view of Jerez where you see exactly what is going on at the time across the city. On the screen you can see people walking, sitting chatting - even waiting for a bus!
Take some walks through the pretty cobbled streets, where you’ll find an orange tree-lined square at almost every turn, you will not go hungry. Tapas is the name of the game here. Check out where the locals are eating and join them!
Of course, this is just a small taster of Jerez, and mention, although brief, must also be made of the city’s Flamenco Heritage. The Flamenco Centre, with its studios and museum, must be on the itinerary of anyone who harbors a passion for this art.
