Just 23 kilometers inland from coastal Cádiz, Jerez de la Frontera has a charm all its own. The town’s two main attractions—known worldwide—are sherry and horses. Jerez’s rich wine culture is reflected in its many bodegas (wineries) and this excursion includes a tasting of fine sherries. Jerez is also famous for its purebred Arabian horses, trained at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art; here, you’ll watch the high-stepping horses in rehearsal.
