|Destination City Name||Jerez de La Frontera|
A sophisticated city of sherry, flamenco, dancing horses and Moorish architecture, Jerez de la Frontera in southern Spain is the embodiment of Andalusia. Steeped in history but with a modern vibe, Jerez is a great base for exploring Andalusia.
High summer is peak season in Jerez, as holidaymakers flock to the city to soak up the sun and Andalusian culture. The heat can be extreme at this time of year, with temperatures in excess 33°C in July and August.
Many visitors aim to avoid the crowds and very hot weather by visiting in spring or autumn. April, May and October are much milder. Spring also sees several major festivals. Jerez hosts its annual horse fair in May, and crowds flock to the city for Easter and the city’s flamenco festival takes place over two weeks in February and March. The sherry festival is in September.
There are fewer visitors over the winter months, and this can be a good time to visit, with temperatures in the high teens, although there is the chance of rain.
Planning ahead is essential when visiting during summer and when major events are on and having leeway in your schedule also helps. But when you book with Expedia there are plenty of ways to ensure you find a cheap flight to Jerez.
