Located inland, 20 km from Sanlúcar, Jerez holds worldwide acclaim for its sherry and brandy production. Jerez is the Spanish word for sherry, but the city is equally famous for its fine horses as well as Flamenco music and dance.
Sun and Wind are the most important factors of Costa de la Luz.In winter temperature seldom fall below 10 C (50 F), easily reaching 20 c(68) by noon. The maximum temperature in summer seldom rise above moderate 30 c(86 F), while in the interior of Andalusia or at Costa del Sol, 40C(104F) easily can be reached. With that balanced climate, the region of Cadiz offers warm weather between spring and fall and a soft and moderate winter. With more than 3000 hours of sunshine, the province of Cadiz is the sunniest region in Europe. The Atlantic ocean in the golf of Cadiz is not as cold as many believe. New Golf developments are emerging on its fringes surrounded by vineyards as far as the eye can see.
|Sanlucar de Barrameda area
Situated at the northern tip of the sherry triangle, 8 km from Chipiona, the delightful small town of San Lucar de Barrameda is flanked by the Guadalquivir estuary. The speciality tipple here is the distinctive manzanilla wine, which acquires its dry, slightly salty tang from the seaside environment and the moist poniente wind. The town is equally famed for its excellent seafood, for which manzanilla is (coincidentally!) the ideal accompaniment.
The town dates back to Roman times. Later the Moors built a defensive fort here which evolved into a major port under the Catholics. Columbus set sail from Sanlúcar in 1498 and, a few decades later, the Portuguese, Ferdinand Magallan set off to circumnavigate the globe from here, in search of a westerly route to the spice islands of Indonesia. Unfortunately, he was killed by local Indians in the Philippines. Today, the town is divided into the older quarter, the Barrio Alto where most of the interesting sights can be seen and the newer Barrio Bajo, closer to the river. The San Lucar beaches are also magnificent and stretch several kilometres to the south-west, while the former port and fishing quarter, the Bajo de Guía is unsurprisingly where some of the best seafood restaurants can be found.
You can also catch the ferry from Playa Bajo de Guia over the river to the Parque Nacional de Doñana. This is a spectacle in the days leading up to Rocio when the pilgrims cross the river with their horses here at the end of the tree-lined Calzada del Ejército.
Only 20 minutes drive from Jerez airport or 1 hour from Seville or Gibraltar or 2 hours from Faro. With direct flights to Jerez from Manchester with Monarch or Stanstead with Ryan Air.
