Jerez de la Frontera Travel Guide: 205 reviews and 574 photos

On the European map thanks to Ryan Air

Now there is a Ryan Air flight direct from London Stansted in the UK, putting Jerez on the European map and bringing British and foreign visitors to the area.

The province of Cadiz is a strange one as the Capital, named Cadiz as well, is a small peninsula that juts out from the mainland, making expansion impossible. Therefore the surrounding towns such as El Puerto de Santa Maria and Jerez have benefited from this, El Puerto for it's beach and Jerez from large businesses that have come to the area and of course it's international airport.

This has resulted in the transformation of Jerez, making it cleaner and prettier ready for it's new business and tourist trade. Jerez is 45 mins away from Cadiz Capital by Train and is in the very north of the province, making it very close to Sevilla too.

    I totally agree with the review of the zoo in jerez, what terrible conditions the animals in this zoo. Please do not support this place, it was pitiful and very very sad to see the awful conditions they were in,very upsetting.

    Hi - just wanted to point out that Fino is NOT like a sweet white wine at all. It is the driest of the dry sherries! It makes a great aperatif served ice-cold with some olives.

    Hot in Jerez, but not as hot as Ecija, the frying pan of Andalucia! I liked a lot Andalucia during the “Semana Santa”, few years ago, but did not visit Jerez; so, I enjoyed reading your nice page, and I would be more radical: close the zoo!

    very interesting page on the city we did NOT visit while in Sevilla, going to Ronda instead. Fino and lemonade sounds good to me. Nice to have an explanation of local customs as well. Email to follow. N.
