Jerez is a quintessentially Spanish city famous for its Moorish Alcázar, Cathedral, bull ring, flamenco tabernas, tapas, horses and the GP Motorbike Circuit.
No visit to Jerez is complete without a visit to the Royal Equestrian School where the immaculately groomed and impeccably trained horses and riders put on a show twice a week. There is also a carriage museum and wonderful grounds to explore before or after the visit. Every Saturday, there is an exhibition at the Carthusian Horse Stud on the outskirts of Jerez. This is the most important stud farm in the world for preserving the lineage of the Spanish horses.
The heart and soul of flamenco can be found in Jerez, particularly the Barrio de Santiago neighbourhood. There are performances, concerts and exhibits throughout the year.
