Very interesting place. Just recently turned museum. Staff not very knowledgable, and not especially courteous, but the two 12th-century towers and garden are alone worth the admission price if you're interested in architecture or history or just getting a good view of the city.

A real treat, from the small mosque to the ramparts and bath house, this is a smaller site but has so many interesting features. The gardens are picturesque and tranquil ideal for a getaway from the hubbub of Jerez.

It's a beautiful Alcazar but it's better to see this one before you see the one in Sevilla because the one in Sevilla is prettier and bigger. Jerez is a smaller city so it's no wonder that it's not as big but in order to avoid any disappointment with this one better to see it first.

Worth while seeing, not so big, but beautiful. Fee is 5€ pp without the camara obscuro. Inside the building you can see the old pharmacy, nice vistas and you can see how they made olive oil.

This is truly a hidden gem. It's the ideal place to wander around for a leisurely hour, whilst soaking in the history of the place. The gardens are very well mainted and the walk through the Alcazar is truly interesting (all with English signage).

First thing to note is that the entrance to the place is confusing. Where you see the black door with entrada written on it, it has an arrow pointing away from the entrance. You just need to walk in the entrance to the left of the sign and the doorway is on the left. Note it doesn't look like the... More

I was so disappointed! It was closed on Saturday evening ! If you are traveling from America. Check the schedule of all attractions in Europe. But, the view from outside the walls it was an incredible fortification.

This is not the largest Alcazar in Andalucia but it is certainly worth a visit. It has been well restored and has plenty of informative English language panels throughout the site. Very nice to see that the interior mosque is given its due credit and the Mihrab restored. Excellent value, especially if a pensioner, and relatively quiet.
