Description of the tour

Tour itinerary: Jerez de la Frontera

Being one of three points of this Magic Triangle and due to its position, almost midway between Cádiz and Seville, Jerez is visited primarily because of its bodegas-wine cellars.  In reference to its monuments it must be one of the most undiscovered areas in Andalusia. However, this city was an important part of the emirate centred in Seville since the Moors came here . For instance, the Alcazar of Jerez is one of the few examples of Almohad architecture in Spain. So we start our program visiting it .The whole building has been well preserved. Remaining from the 12 000 a.d are two gates, a small mosque, an octagonal tower, the baths and the beautiful gardens, laid out in typical symmetrical Arabic style with a number of small fountains. 

A unique show entilted "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" at the Royal School of Equestrian Art starts at 12.00 and we need to be there in advance to walk through the Palace park and admire the "pura rasa" horses preparing to leave. It is saying the heading that “the Spanish Horse is the most fitting to be mounted by a King. In fact, it is easy to see portraits where Kings and nobles appear mounted upon Spanish horses. They are not only very handsome and elegant with its long legs and snow white hair, but they are also famous because of their grace, intelligence and nobility.

The show consists of between six and eight different choreographies combining classical and country-style riding Doma Vaquera. The Spanish walk, piaffe (between pilars), levanta- when horses rise up on his hind legs, carriage driving are some star elements of this incredible show.

A tasting of exclusive Spanish sherry, brandy and tapas takes place after the equestrian ballet. Each "bodega" - a winery - owns a certain section of the "magic triangle" in the province of Cadiz. This district, located between  tree towns of the Cadiz province is registered by origin and only here sherry production is allowed. 

Alone in Jerez there are more than 40 such bodegas  or rather, more beautiful! - wine cathedrals. They can't be named differently. The buildings  themselves in the heart of a luxurious fragrant gardens are magnificent. Sherry mature in casks of American red oak, which are stacked in rows on top of each other forming a ladder . What is the secret of sherry-making ? Why are its quality and its taste the same , being the harvest not equally successful every year?  In order to answer these questions ,  we visit Tio Pepe winery.  Sherry ranges from dry to syrupy-sweet. So it is impossible not to like it !
