Flamenco dancers, tapas, horses and sherry – could there be anywhere more quintessentially Spanish than Jerez de la Frontera? 

Spain’s gastronomic maridaje – the marriage of food and wine is in full swing in this town, where life is quite literally fuelled by sherry and tapas marching to flamenco beats. It is famous for its annual flamenco festival, but you can also find it in peñas (social clubs), tabancos (old-style bars), and late at night in the plazas. 

Cobbled alleys, plazas and baroque churches make exploring this Spanish city a joy and there is plenty of Instagram gold to be found. Jerez is famous for three things, flamenco, sherry and horses so no trip here is complete without a stop at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. You can gape as the famous Andalusian horses train for their world renowned dances and watch as they prance around the ring. There is also a museum attached to see centuries old equestrian equipment. 

You might know sherry as the dusty fortified wine your grandma might have had tucked away in the cupboard, but here in Jerez this misunderstood beverage is celebrated. Sherry hails from one place in the world – you guessed it in the sherry triangle of towns Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlucar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa Maria in Andalusia. Locals pop into bodegas to fill their bottles for just a few euros and you can find sherry in almost every bar you stumble upon. 

So what are you waiting for? Put on your dancing shows and flamenco your way to Jerez now!
