Famous for the production of Sherry and Brandy, Jerez occupies a privileged position midway between the coast and the mountains. A beautiful and fascinating city, Jerez is popular with visitors of specific interests, namely dance, equestrianism and motorsports. That said, there is still much to see within the city itself, even if you’re just passing through. The old town of Jerez is home to an 11th century Arab fortress and a spectacular cathedral – both of which are a must-see when exploring.
Jerez is the cultural home of Flamenco, and the traditional Andalucian dance is celebrated every year with an internationally renowned festival which sees visitors from across the globe flock to the city to enjoy, learn and take part in the colourful and vibrant dancing.
Bodegas, or wine manufacturers are littered around the city, with over 30 in the centre itself. If you fancy a tipple, or simply want to learn more about how the famous sherries are produced, then a number offer guided tours and tasting sessions – though if you travel into the city via car and find yourself tempted by a tipple, make sure you have a nominated driver!
Jerez is also famous for its dancing horses. The Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre, the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art is based in the city, and holds regular performances to the crowds who watch in awe at this proud and noble tradition. One of the many festivals held in the city is dedicated purely to equestrianism and draws large numbers of international visitors.
The nearby Circuito de Jerez is well known in motorsports circles. A former formula one circuit, it’s now home to the Spanish MotoGP event, drawing thousands of spectators to watch the action on and off the track.
There are a number of reasons why so many visitors regularly flock to the south western city of Jerez, amongst them the very Spanish pastimes of horses, wine and dancing. But arguably the biggest attraction for many is the high octane motorsports action at the Circuito de Jerez. (more…)
