Description

Jerez de la Frontera in the south of Spain is famous for horse breeding, flamenco and sherry wine. But there is much more to this city than that. The origin of Jerez is Arab, but when the Christians took control of the city, it became part of the two kingdoms' border for many years. This blend of cultures, the fact that the city was repopulated by nobles, knights and members of the church and the effect of the wine industry are notable in the actual architecture of the city and the identity of its locals. 

Start this Online Experience from Plaza del Arenal, which is the heart of the city and its main square. Then walk to the Alcazar, one of the most important Moorish buildings in the area, while we explore the Arab roots of the city. After that, we will pass by a renowned sherry bodega (winery), Gonzalez Byass, to learn about its history, appreciate the wine industry's influence on the town, and discover why sherry wine became so popular all over the world. 

Also, marvel at the Cathedral de San Salvador and the San Dionisio Church while uncovering their origins and importance to the citizens. We will walk around the main and vibrant streets and enjoy its noble architecture, talk about the traditional events in the city, experience the most authentic city centre as a local, and.... who knows which other surprises Jerez could offer!

Aurora Munoz Cachon

Hola everyone! I have 10 years of experience as a tour guide in Jerez and the Sherry region wineries. I am passionate about the history and the traditions of Jerez, my hometown, and especially the wine industry. Having also lived in England, France and China, and being a travel lover myself, I know what a traveller looks for. 

In my opinion, travel is seeing the sights a place has to offer and diving into its history; interacting with the environment and the locals to understand its real identity. It is my pleasure being a hostess in my hometown to help people discover its many wonders!
