Jerez de la Frontera
Few places in Spain enjoy international recognition like Jerez. Thanks to its wine -the “sherry” – the equestrian and taurine tradition and flamenco, the name of this Andalusian city has long since crossed borders.
The Phoenicians arrived 3,000 years ago to found the colony called Xera, the city that was later called Ceret under Roman rule, and Sheres when it was an Arab fortress. With the Catholic Monarchs began the prosperous trade of its famous wines with the English.
The Muslims left a deep mark on the city, as the urban layout of the neighborhoods nestled in the heart of the old Arab medina: San Lucas and San Mateo, which houses its homonymous church, the market square (headquarters of the Archaeological museum) and the Riquelme palace.
But, undoubtedly, the most important Andalusian vestige is the Alcázar of Jerez, being inside the walled enclosure the mosque, the Arab baths and the garden of the Olives, with pools and fountains that harmonize perfectly with the baroque palace of Villavicencio, erected on the ruins of the primitive Islamic palace and in whose tower the visitor can visit the original camera obscura.
