Jerez Travel Guide
Jerez Local History
Andalucian culture owes a lot to Jerez de la Frontera, a somewhat unexceptional town in Cordoba. It is where the fiery flamenco originated. This famous combination of song, guitar and dramatic dance, for which Spain is so well known, was the passionate product of the Andalucian gypsies and is tradition that lives on and captivates audiences wherever it is performed. It is also where that noble and well-respected drink sherry, or Jerez, was born. Spain's most famous wine serves as an aperitif with a dry 'fino' or 'amontellado', or as the perfect close to a rich dinner with a sweet 'dulce'.
Older, wealthier, travellers tend to visit Jerez, more than the bikini crowd does, drawn to the town by the lure of the wine and an appreciation of the finer things in life.
Jerez Restaurants and Bars
McDonalds - For those who have to get their fix of Big Mac's no matter where they are, there is always a McDonalds somewhere in whatever exotic city they may be visiting. Jerez is no exception. Located in Centro Comercial, C. Largo is America's favourite fast food joint.
Casa Pepa - Pl. Madre de Dios, 14. If you fancy mixing with some of the locals, and enjoy a meal at the same time, take yourself off to the well-known meeting place where the natives hang out.
Pizzeria da Paolo - C. Clavel at C. Valientes. This is a great place for pizza straight from the oven. Also on the menu is whopping servings of delectable pasta, good enough to bring a tear to eye of any Italian Mama
Jerez Bars & Clubs
Bars and terrazas are located in the triangle of C. Santo Domingo, C. Salvatierra, and Av. Mejico. Cancun, at C. Pajarete, 18, is the trendiest spot in town where the younger set get their groove on to the blast of techno-pop.
