Jerez de la Frontera-Cadiz
Christmas Celebrations
6th December to 6th January  
 Christmas celebrations include a Christmas market, a competition for the best Nativity scenes and ďZambombas
 
 
Jerez de la Frontera is known for its sherry. It is located near Sevilla and it is a nice place to visit during your stay in Andalusia. The best time to come is during one of the two major festivals. On the one hand you can come in May when the well-known May Horse Fair takes place. On the other hand the celebration of the vintage in September should motivate the traveller to come to this city. Most visitors also come here to taste and buy the famous sherry or brandy in one of the many bodegas.
For more than two centuries, Jerez has been famous for being one of the most important craddles of Flamenco. The universality of flamenco is indisputably recognized by the very best artists of this art and by good flamenco lovers. They define Jerez as the most important spot for flamenco.


But there is more to Jerez than festivals and alcohol. To get acquainted with the city, for a first impression, take a hourís bustour. Visit the Royal Equestrian School with itís most impressive show, usually at Thursday mornings. It is similar as the horse shows in Vienna but far easier to attend. And do not forget Jerezís own little alcazar. It has some interesting features, mosque, bathes, olive oil production in early days and a nice camera obscura. If things get too hot go to nearby Santa Maria. Ocean winds at last!
 
 
Jerez de la Frontera has a pleasant castle (Alcazar), a cathedral, a museum with the largest collection of clocks in all of Europe, and is renowned for its equestrian school. But, Jerez del la Frontera's real fame comes from its production of Sherry. No other region in Europe can produce a similar wine and call it Sherry; real Sherry only comes from Jerez.
