On holidays in Jerez de la Frontera, discover the union between the lordly aristocratic palaces and the popular flavour of Andalusian hamlets. The city holds an incredible architectural heritage, witness of the passing of the Phoenician, Arab and Christian cultures.
The city’s Muslim past has left its mark on the walls and the Alcázar, whose walled complex holds a mosque, the Arab baths and the Olive garden. In the centre of the old quarter, its main Christian symbol, the cathedral, is an example of this union. It is built on top of a mosque and offers Baroque and Neoclassical elements, while its tower holds Mudéjar influences.
