Spain: Full-Day Private Tour to Cádiz & Jerez

5. Spain: Full-Day Private Tour to Cádiz & Jerez

There are few places in Spain which can lay claim to the international recognition enjoyed by Jerez. Thanks to its wine, Jerez or sherry, the equestrian tradition, the bulls, flamenco and motor racing, this Andalusian town’s name has been known far and wide for many years. The Phoenicians arrived in the surrounding area some 3000 years ago to establish a colony called Xera, which became known as Ceret under the rule of the Romans and Sheres or Xeres when it became an Arabic fortress. Under the reign of the Catholic Monarchs, the prosperous trading of its famous wines with the English began. The Muslims left a deep mark on the town as well including the layout of the quarters situated in the heart of the old Arabic city town center such as San Lucas and San Mateo, where the church of the same name is to be found, the Market Square (housing the Archaeological Museum) and Riquelme Palace. But without a doubt, the most important Al-Andalus feature is the Alcázar de Jerez situated within the walled enclosure of the mosque, the Arab baths and the olive garden with its cisterns and fountains in perfect harmony with the Baroque palace of Villavicencio built upon the ruins of the original Islamic palace with a tower where the visitor can find the original camera obscura. The “Tacita del Plata” is considered the oldest city in the Western World. It was founded (in 1100 BC) by the Phoenicians, a seafaring people who turned Gadir into an important trading colony where the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Visigoths and the Muslims would all subsequently settle. An open, cosmopolitan city, its port was chosen by Columbus as the point of departure for his second voyage to the New World. The city would then become, after the decline of Seville, the port to The Indies, drawing the flow of trade with the American continent. This frantic commercial activity then brought about an era of economic, cultural splendor, when Baroque palaces with their characteristic towers offering amazing views were built. The cathedral, which can be seen from the sea, and its golden tiled dome fit perfectly into the Cadiz cityscape with its colonial air. It combines both the Baroque and Neoclassical styles, and its treasures are amongst the most important in Spain. The intense trading activity with the Indies awakened the greedy interest of pirates, which led to the city being fortified. The remains of the original although renovated crossfire defense system designed by Vauban make up an important part of the heritage of Cadiz. La Puerta Tierra, the city gates, retain sections of walls and semi-bastions such as those of San Roque and Santa Elena, on both sides. A stroll through the Campo del Sur will afford you with a view of the Los Mártires and Capuchinos defense bastions by La Caleta, which is guarded by San Sebastián and Santa Catalina Castles. Heading towards the boulevard Alameda Apodaca, the La Candelaria Bastion and the San Carlos Walls can also be seen. The Puerta Tierra Walls clearly divide the new city regained from the sea –built along a great avenue and along the extensive, landscaped promenade– and the old. The historic center of the city has narrow streets and small squares in popular districts such as La Viña – the fisherman’s district - the Mentidero, Santa María (true home of flamenco song) and El Pópulo.

From Seville: Cadiz & Jerez Sherry Tasting Day Trip

6. From Seville: Cadiz & Jerez Sherry Tasting Day Trip

If you are on your grand tour of Andalusia, Cadiz and Jerez are those magical spots that sees comparatively few visitors. Unlike well-traveled attractions such as Cordoba or Granada, Cadiz and Jerez have got their own soul, history, charm and claim to fame. One of the oldest cities in all of Europe, Cadiz was founded by the Phoenicians 3000 years ago. It rests on the tip of the European continent and Atlantic Ocean, at the confluence of the Mediterranean Sea and the ocean, with cool sea breezes and long sandy beaches, a vivacious old port town encompassed by an ancient wall. The bustling pedestrian streets of Cadiz can easily be explored by foot in a few hours, where you will encounter inviting fresh seafood aromas and friendly locals, making it one of the most entertaining cities in all of Spain. Carnival in Cadiz is celebrated extravagantly. Jerez is the capital of the famous Spanish sherry in all its delightful varieties, from very dry to desert wines and you will be able to taste them all. Your excursion will enable you to enjoy a delightful day with nice walks in the old town with its numerous lively plazas and historic monuments, wrapping up with a relaxing time on the beach. Have the chance to walk up to the historic watch tower from where the boats were observed, and visit an old and family run wine cellar to immerse yourself in the fantastic world of Spanish wine. Optionally, you could visit the exquisite ancient Camera Obscura to have a chance to view the city from a unique perspective.

Nice ride with really nice people! The guide Manuel was very helpful, pleasing everyone. I would only take from the Jerez de la Fronteira itinerary....in addition to being very weak, the tour of the winery...the time we lost in Jerez we could have enjoyed much more in Cadiz...I was a little frustrated. That was the opinion of everyone on the tour. We were 8 people and we told this to the guide tb.

A magical day with a very professional and cultivated, attentive and very friendly guide, the visit of the cellar is very educational, the show is a must and the little tour in Cadiz instructive! A very serious and reliable company!
