Jerez, a complete medina to discover

Jerez, one of the most important cities and municipalities of Cádiz province and, in general, the entire Andalusia, is a destination with much to discover. There is no denying its architectural, cultural, gastronomic and oenological heritage but, at the same time, Jerez is largely unknown to many people. Dare yourself to spend a few days there with the help of this guide and realise the great value of this city, especially its flamenco shows.

The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art

If there is an important and representative animal in the city of Jerez, it has to be the horse. At the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, which is composed of the Palace of Recreo de las Cadenas Palace, the Interactive Museum of Equestrian Art and Enganche Museum, you can get to know everything related to purebred Spanish horses. 

A stroll through monumental Jerez

The old city of Jerez hosts a great variety of monuments that are a must-see in any visit. The most important of all has to be the Alcázar de Jerez, one of the few Almohad buildings left in Spain. Declared as Historical Artistic Monument, its origins date back to the 12th century. Another important building is the Cathedral of San Salvador. With its Gothic structure and Baroque ornaments, this cathedral boasts an imposing dome and a great tower.

The Santo Domingo Cloister was built by the Dominicans during the Almohade period and congregated by King Alfonso X in 1264. This church is another must-see for visitors. The same goes for Cartuja, which is located 3 km from the historic centre. This is perhaps the most valuable religious building in the province of Cádiz. In addition, the Plaza del Arenal and Larga Street are the other two strategic points where you enjoy the city's atmosphere, wine and flamenco.

A stopover in Medina Sidonia

Those who visit Jerez should also consider taking a trip to the city of Medina Sidonia, a former capital of Arab civilisation during the Muslim occupation and considered today as the Balcony of Cádiz. It is only 30 km away from Jerez. In its entirety, Medina Sidonia is considered as a historic city. In fact, this city has managed to preserve most of its ancient ruins that date back to the golden age. Many of them can be seen in the Archaeological Museum of Medina Sidonia.

In summary, within the Spanish and Andalusian geography, few places are more representative and iconic than Jerez de la Frontera. Undoubtedly, this city is an authentic medina that has, fortunately, remained unchanged over time.
