Jerez & Cadiz (1 Day)

It takes about 1 hour from Seville to Jerez.

The beautiful city of Jerez de la Frontera maintains its acclaimed reputation as an important producer of liquor and brandy. The word Jerez is derived from Arabic and this stately city is famous for its horses, as well as for its flamenco music and dance.

The tour will begin with a brief visit of the city and its Alcázar before being able to experience first-hand the spectacle of the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Foundation. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you can enjoy an exhibition considered one of the best equestrian choreographies in the world; an authentic horse ballet with compositions based on the traditional methods of taming wild horses accompanied by Spanish music.

During the day, our guide will suggest you take your lunch in a traditional tavern in the old town, called "tabancos". In some of these taverns, you may be lucky and can enjoy some small improvised flamenco show!

After visiting Jerez, you will be driven to Cádiz.

Cádiz is also called by locals "The silver cup" due to the shape of the city from the air and that lightly color given by the sun during the sunset. The city, founded 3,000 years ago by the Phoenicians, is considered the oldest city in the Western World, and displays the treasures of its ancient history: archaeological remains, mysterious sarcophagi of the old Gadir and a Roman theater facing the Ocean. The city also collected the marine breeze of the New World, when it received the monopoly trading with the Spanish possessions in America in the 18th and 19th century. This period of prosperity is manifested through the neoclassical architecture of the houses of the rich merchants, elegant squares and cafes, as well as the mighty Cathedral dominating the gulf which has a familiar air with the Havana Bay.

After the tour, our driver will take you back to Seville.
