Known as the home of flamenco music, fine Spanish sherry, the best Andalusian horse breeds and the motorcycle Grand Prix, Jerez de la Frontera — also known simply as Jerez — is rich with cultural treasures waiting to be explored. Meet your local guide at Arenal Square, and set off on a leisurely walking tour of the historic city center. As you stroll, learn about the long and multilayered history of the city, the largest in the province of Cádiz, and hear how Jerez became the sherry and motorbike capital of the world.
No tour of the city would be complete without a visit to the striking Cathedral of San Salvador. Admire the ornate exterior, featuring Gothic, Baroque and Neoclassical flourishes, and step inside to explore this lasting spiritual legacy of 17th-century Spain.
Step back even further in time to the 11th century with a tour of the royal Alcazar of Jerez, a rare surviving example of the Almohad style of architecture. Tour the ruins of the tower, palace, baths and mosque that once formed the hub of the city’s Moorish rulers.
The end of the 2-hour tour, say farewell to you guide back the departure point in Arenal Square.
