Jerez de la Frontera, well known for its wines, its horses and its flamenco, preserves a monumental centre that has been declared a historic artistic site. One of the noblest towns in Andalusia brings together the splendour of aristocratic palaces with the popular flavour of typically Andalusian houses.
During our walk, we discover not only Jerez de la Frontera's Arab past, very clear in its walls, the Fortress and the Mosque, or the city’s main Christian symbol: the Cathedral, but also the tangled streets of the old town, the atmosphere of the timeless buildings, the hidden courtyards, and the occasional forgotten corner where the essence of Andalusia is captured by a special lighting.
A stop at the Food Market illustrates why Jerez de la Frontera cuisine is so tasty: over fifty stalls selling fresh fish from giant tuna to bocarones and shellfish from huge spider crabs to diminutive Cadiz Bay shrimps, similar number of vegetable stalls where you can find every seasonal vegetable imaginable. An equal revelation are a smaller number of other stalls where we find from olives to Iberian ham or local cheese, a large number of offer that attracts everyday customers competing for the best fresh buys.
What else can be better than finish our walk at one of the best Tabernas of the city savouring a delicious Sherry wine?
Come, enjoy, taste and discover Jerez de la Frontera with us!
