What to see We recommend getting to know the city through its finest exponent: the world of fine wines. You'll have the chance to visit many famous vineyards and sample designation of origin wines such as Jerez-Xéres-Sherry and Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The city forms part of the Marco de Jerez Wine Route and is the 2014 European Capital of Wine. As regards equestrian art, you can, for instance, enjoy spectacular horse shows at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. If you're not familiar with such horses, you'll be astounded when you see them dance! If you've seen them before, you certainly don't need convincing. In May, you can go along to the fabulous Horse Fair. And, of course, the city is renowned for its deeply-rooted flamenco traditions, especially in the district of Santiago. Jerez holds a prestigious flamenco festival around February or March every year. Jerez's monumental landmarks include the city walls, El Alcázar (Arab fortress) and the chapel of Santa María la Real, which all remind us of its Arabic past. The building known as La Cartuja is one of the greatest artistic treasures in the province of Cadiz, and the cathedral houses paintings by Zurbarán. At Villavicencio palace, there is a Camera Obscura that allows you to view the entire city. To sit and watch the world go by surrounded by orange trees, we suggest Plaza e Iglesia de San Miguel.
