Few places in Spain enjoy an international recognition like that enjoyed by Jerez. Thanks to its wine – the “sherry” or “sherry” -, the equestrian and bullfighting tradition, flamenco and motor, the name of this Andalusian city has long since crossed borders.
The Phoenicians came to its surroundings 3,000 years ago to found the colony called Xera, the city that was later called Ceret under Roman rule, and Sheres or Xeres when it was an Arab fortress. With the Catholic Monarchs the prosperous trade of their famous wines with the English began.
Muslims left a deep mark on the city, such as the urban layout of the neighborhoods located in the heart of the ancient Arab medina: San Lucas and San Mateo, which houses its homonymous church, the market square (home of the Archaeological museum) and the Riquelme palace.
