Jerez de la Frontera or Jerez is known for its flamenco, horses and sherry but this wonderful town of Spain has much more to offer. There are castles and magnificent churches and where we were introduced to the “Secret language of the Spanish fan”.
We have spent 3 weeks exploring Jerez de la Frontera and felt it was time to spread our wings. The city of Cádiz, home port to the Spanish Armada (navy), beckoned and is just a short 30-minute train ride south.
If you plan to visit the lovely city of Jerez, you may want to be here during the Fiestas de la Vendimia de Jerez, the Sherry Festival. When planning our travels months ago we read about this festival and, as we didn’t know that much about sherry or this region of Spain, we had to add it to our travel plans.
