Jerez de la Frontera is known as ´the city of sherry and horses´. The sherries produced in the many bodegas here such as Tio Pepe and Harvey´s are world famous. The chalky flats around Jerez with the high temperatures and shelter from the winds a little further inland make fabulous growing conditions for the grapes in order to produce the highest quality ´fino´.
The city itself offers plenty of history hidden in its pedestrian streets in the old town whilst the outer areas thrive with local businesses, large shopping malls and parks.
For those passionate about horses, the Royal Equestrian School , Escuala Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre is located here offering performances of the bond born from centuries of practiced horsemanship skills and traditions to create one of the most impressive horse shows in the world.
Jerez hides many gems in its streets including live Flamenco venues, antique shops and artezan produce. With its airport and train links, it makes it easy to reach and a good base from which to explore the area with the draw of the coast less than an hours drive away.
