Palacio del Tiempo, Jerez de la Frontera: 3 reviews and 3 photos
The Palace of Time is a collection of over 300 clocks and watches from 17 - 19th centuries. There are clocks of many styles and types from France, England, Austria and Italy and they are all in working order.
The collection was the prized possession of a rich wine merchant and is beautifully displayed. As you would expect with such a valuable collection, security is tight.
In addition, there are some excellent special effects and some very clever life-sized holograms which make a very modern display.
It was a worthwhile visit and if you are especialy interested in horology you would cross continents to see this.
Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 10.00-2.00 and 5.00-6.00pm. Sun: 10.00-2.00pm.
Entry: 5.10 euros each.
(Our visit was in 2003 so it would be worth checking the website for times and prices).
Address: C/Cervantes 3
Directions: Off Lealas, just down from Plaza de la Constitucion.
The Museum is on the north side of the city centre, not far from the Equestrian School.
