The Andalucia region
The Costa de la Luz is 300 km long; it stretches from Tarifa at the Southern tip of Spain to the Portuguese border.
At least nine beaches boast the distinguished European blue flag award for clean beaches and water.
The coastline varies and changes from point to point, interspersing deserted virgin white fine sands with rocky coves and caves, beaches backed by pine forests or wild marshlands, golden beaches with promenades, restaurants and shops to white washed towns looking down on you.
For many months of the year you will find beaches just for yourself and even in the months of July and August when most Spanish people take their holidays you will always be able find a spot with a few metres space surrounding you. The purest, finest sandy beaches with their crystal clear waters are truly remarkable and have to be seen to be believed. It would seem a beach is just a beach but when you visit this coastline you will find there are different beaches to suit everyone. If its to surf or swim off, to walk or exercise on, take a romantic stroll or just to watch the sunrise or sunset, this magnificent coastline has it all.
Jerez de la Frontera
Jerez, is without doubt one of the most wonderful towns in Spain, enjoy your stay, you'll find the Spain you didn't know you were looking for.
Even at the end of October it is hot, 29c during the days. This is a wonderful dry heat, one is quite comfortable strolling and exploring. This is a town that is proud of itself.
Jerez de la Frontera is built around plaza after plaza, each street lined with heavily laden orange trees and Jacarandas. The dimensions and scale of the town are perfectly proportioned and serve as a great contrast the the medieval tone of Cadiz.. Jerez is in part a planned city with haphazard side-streets but one can see that some of the civic planning of the Romans, and after them the Moors, has survived. The town is old, we are looking at much that survived more than 1000 years. The eleventh century Alcazar is worth a visit and so is the small but useful Archeological Museum in the Plaza Mercado. Even if you aren't interested in pre-history or the Roman and Moorish remains, or even the 7th Century Persian helmet, just savour a perfect building that completely recaptures the spirit of a Roman villa with its internal courtyards and cool marble floors.
Opposite the Alcazar they are refurbishing an old warehouse as apartments and as you wander the barrios of Jerez one becomes aware of how important history is to the town and how sympathetic the architects are to the past when they design even new buildings within the old walls.
Jerez is full of pavement cafes, the waiters and waitresses are friendly and helpful, the town is welcoming everywhere you go. If it is too hot for you, find a shady open spot outside a cafe and try some of the wonderful tapas and sherry.
Everywhere you turn in Jerez you will find something elegant, another little plaza you missed, always a bank. I have never seen so many banks in one town. For shopping the Calle Larga is the avenue for you, cutting through the centre of town, and paved but more recently, American style commercial centres have been built on the outskirts near the hospital and are amongst the biggest in Spain. This is one town that has at least realised that cars can be kept out of the centre.
Of course Jerez means sherry and you can't avoid the bodegas or the sherry producers. Harveys is right by the station, but the prettiest and most central is Gonzalez Byass. Even if you don't like sherry, it's worth looking around or taking at least one tour and don't forget to sample the Jerez brandy which is surprisingly smooth and easy to swallow. Wine towns are always civilised and Jerez is no exception. The commercial streets are wide and tree lined, the barrios are low scale, filled with houses that hide the courtyards within.
Jerez is very much a town in transition. There are simple delights, discovering at the intersection beside St Domingo's Church (1264) the delightful arbour covered street of Porvera. 1264 is a key date as this is when the town was taken back from the Moors.
The Moors left Jerez a long time ago. Alfonso X the Wise still has a monument to his victory over it. Like Sevilla, Jerez was a town ruled by the Moors, who showed remarkable tolerance for others, letting Christians and Jews alone for the most part. From the quantity of evidence of archeological remains, Jerez went through a building boom in the eleventh century and again, the sixteenth where many churches have been built on the site of old mosques. It pretty much froze at that level and size for the next four hundred years and thus was saved the ravages of 'progress'. The town feels relaxed and in summer the siesta is taken seriously, as it gets to be pretty hot here.
There are two other reasons to come to Jerez, Flamenco and dancing horses. Flamenco began its revival here and now people come from all over the world to study in the old traditions here. You can find out more in the Centro Andaluz de Flamenco in the hard to find Plaza de San Juan. The best Flamenco flares up in different places around the town and and on weekends performers often go to Sevilla to entertain there. After the attraction of Flamenco, the horse has place of honour here and on Thursdays at noon you can see the best equestrian skills on show at the Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art Avda, Duque de Abrantes. For details about all of the above you can call the Turismo Office Tel: 956 180 732 or 956 331 150
Jerez isn't competing with the Prado or the beach life (which is less than half an hour away) but it does offer something else, peace and quiet, a measured life. The market is excellent, the restaurants serve tasty and very fresh food.
Jerez is a place for artists who love the light , writers who like to be warm and dancers who like to stomp their feet. Furthermore Jerez inspires loyalty. Walk it and enjoy it.
