Jerez is a picturesque town with a history that goes back to the time when the Moors occupied much of Spain. It has a lovely old town, Casco Antiguo, which has beautiful squares lined with palm trees. It’s the perfect place for a holiday.
Holidays in Jerez are snapped up by those looking for a dose of Spanish history and culture and, perhaps, a tot or two of sherry.
Located in the south-west of Spain, with strong British links evident because of the horses and the sherry industry, Jerez attracts many travellers each year. The word Jerez comes from Arabic and the English word 'sherry' is derived from it.
For tourists keen to visit the quiet beach resorts or nearby Seville it couldn't be easier as you simply fly into Jerez de la Frontera Airport (XRY). You can then enjoy a visit to the sherry houses of Gonzalez-Byass, Domecq, Sandeman and Tio Pepe. You can also see the stone fortification known as the Alcazar, the Del Salvador Cathedral, the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, the Palacio del Tiempo and the Hammam Arab baths.
It's also worth visiting the old church, which was originally built by the Arabs as a mosque. Art lovers will enjoy the Sacristy of the Cathedral del Salvador, which is home to The Sleeping Girl, a lovely painting by Zurbarán.
Those enjoying Jerez holidays can also visit nearby resort towns, such as Chiclana de la Frontera and Isla Canella, and explore the many towns of Andalusia just a short drive away. History enthusiasts will love Cadiz, the port that supported Spanish exploration of the Americas, where you'll find an 11th-century Moorish fortress and Alcazaba, which has now been partially restored.
The town and wider region have much to offer because there are so many different things to do and see. Jerez can provide an exciting and fascinating holiday for all ages.
