19 Photos To Inspire A Visit To Jerez de la Frontera

Tucked away in the southern Spanish region of Andalucia, Jerez de la Frontera is most definitely a hidden gem. Think stunning Moorish architecture, an historical fortress and great weather, and you’re already on the right track. As well as that, the city offers delicious food and the famous Tio Pepe bodegas, where you can take a tour and see how the sherry is made. And don’t forget the flamenco! Small, intimate shows full of passion and music that draws you in and captivates you instantly.

Jerez is a city that lives and breathes the Spanish philosophy of siestas. Due to the location in the south, everything shuts down during the warmest hours of the afternoon. In the morning and come evening though, the squares are full of life. Cafes spill out onto the streets, people revel in the cool late evening and enjoy meals and drinks in the open air restaurants. It’s such a drastic difference to the afternoon warmth, and one I’ve not seen in any other city.

A visit to Jerez is an opportunity to sample the slower pace of life in Spain. If you stay for more than a day it won’t be a trip of racing between the sights, but more experiencing the small town vibes. Enjoy a coffee and a slice of tortilla espanola, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy life as the Spaniards do. If all that isn’t enough to attract you to the city, here are 19 photos to inspire a visit to Jerez de la Frontera.

    Your photos are lovely! I’ve not been to Jerez de la Frontera, but it sure is stunning. The Moorish architecture is reminiscent of those I’ve seen in Seville and Granada, which I absolutely love. Definitely worth checking out (plus with tortilla española, as you wrote)!

      It definitely has the feel of those two cities but on a smaller scale and with much less tourists. I’d recommend a visit for sure! 🙂

    Wow, this looks amazing! I’ve never been (and I’ve actually never heard of) Jerez de la Frontera, but I hope I’ll get the chance to visit next time I’m in Andalucia! 😍 Thanks for sharing!

      I actually only found out about it because it was the cheapest flight from where I was haha! It’s a doable day trip from Seville if you ever go back ☺️
