Wanted to see some authentic flamenco and came to the right place. €10 each every 2 weeks on a Friday. An amazing setting outdoors in the old palace grounds. Great dancer and singers and an incredible guitarist. Parking easy just around the corner underground. Bar for drinks and snacks

This is an old fortress and especially the irrigation system and baths were interessing. The mosque inside is very small and basic. The exposition was not that interesting. For me it could do without. Entrance is €5,00. It is more basic and not to compare with the alcazar in seville. Still a nice place to visit.

We were in Jerez to see the Flamenco Institute. It closed at 2 so we had time before we needed to return to Cadiz. We walked past the cathedral and went to the Alcazar. At the time (in May 2014) the entrance was being worked on so we walked all the way around before we noticed how to get in.... More

We were in Jerez planning to visit a bodega but had arrived early with time to spare. As the Alcazar was right next to the bodega it seemed a good option. On arrival it transpired that there is free entry on a Monday morning! A nice surprise. It was also very quiet, so we were able to wander around, explore... More

The Alcazar is at the highest hill, so it has the greatest views of Jerez and the surrounding valleys and mountains. It also gives you a perspective on the advanced andaluzian culture where science, art and tolerance flourished. A not to miss visit while in Jerez and even worth the trip from nearby Sevilla or Cadiz.

This was an interesting visit and it is well worth paying the extra to have the headphone tour. At the time of our visit it was very quite which gave a very peaceful atmosphere.

The Moorish Alcazar is largely in ruins but an extensive reconstruction programme is under way. Once within its walls, the city disappears and you find yourself in an oasis with small but beautiful gardens and mature fruit trees. A perfect balance for the other many attractions of the city.

Wasn't sure what to expect when we got here. But the Alcazar really has everything. A lovely Moorish fortress.Atmospheric, charming and beautiful. The gardens were delightful. I could have spent all day just smelling the exotic blooms. But then there is the old mosque, turrets and walls to explore. Fascinating. A must if you find yourself in Jerez.

Jerez without the Alcazar? No way! This is part of the must visits in Jerez (equestrian school, bodega, and this). It is simple, costs almost nothing, and we spent almost 2 hours inside. Just wander around, sit down for 10 minutes, then strool trhough the gardens to the next point, and repeat the action (or absence...). This place makes you... More
