Jerez de la Frontera is the most populated city in the province of Cádiz and the fifth-largest in Andalusia. Its privileged location on the map has made it a hub for communications, logistics and transport within Andalusia. When people hear “Jerez”, they think horses, wine, flamenco and engines. But there’s much more—these are just a few of the best-known facets of this city, which is located less than 15 km from the beach and 80 km from the Strait of Gibraltar, not to mention just one hour by car from Seville.
The epicentre of the city’s horse sector is the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Arts, open most of the year, where you can make themed visits and experience horse shows. These are normally held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but the dates may vary depending on the season.
It’s hard to talk about Jerez without mentioning flamenco. This art form is omnipresent in the city and has been considered World Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO since 2010. Jerez has produced renowned flamenco artists such as Fernando Terremoto, Lola Flores or La Paquera, to name just a few. The best time to enjoy a flamenco show in the city is between February and March, when the city is brimming with art during the Jerez Flamenco Festival. In addition, the city’s “tabancos”—old wine shops converted into spaces to taste fantastic soups—also play host to shows almost every week.
If you feel like going beyond just a simple visit to this great city, grab a car and hit the road.
The biggest claim to fame for Jerez on the international stage would have to be its wine. Thanks to the nearby Guadalquivir river and its mild temperatures, the conditions are ideal for the more than 10,000 hectares of vineyards in the area, which produce a wine found nowhere else in the world. Don’t miss the wine route in Jerez and get to know its best wineries.
Since the Speed Circuit debuted in 1985, this facility has become one of the great tourist attractions in Jerez. This track has played host to multiple Grand Prix races in Formula 1 and other racing categories—but it’s the famous motorcycle circuit that has won it the title of “Cathedral of Engines”. It is a favourite track for many drivers around the world. Learn about its history in a guided visit.
Throughout the year, Jerez finds plenty of reasons to celebrate. In Holy Week, the smell of incense fills the streets, along with the footsteps of the city’s many religious brotherhoods. After the Motorcycle Grand Prix, you can find the city’s inhabitants filling hundreds of event tents for the Horse Festival. In September, they celebrate the wine harvest in the Harvest Festival. And in December, we can see how the people of Jerez celebrate Christmas like nowhere else you’ve ever seen. The traditional zambomba drums take over the streets and accompany unique music and carols you won’t hear anywhere else.
