Attractive alcazar, but don't expect the alhambra

A lovely small garden, worth visiting if you're in Jerez. We visited early in the morning when it first opened, and were able to take photos without anyone else in sight. Worth... read more

Well kept buildings in Jerez. Nice park like setting and a major selling point "on flat ground" as compared to having to be a mountain goat in Granada. I really can't say too much more as it is a well maintained historical edifice in Jerez. I was very impressed with the architecture and the fact it was in such great... More

We really enjoyed our walk around this place which has so much history. The English explanations were very good and there is a lot of the buildings in tact there are cool places inside to see if hot and lovely views from the towers. What's more is adults are 5 euros and kids are 1.80 euros. Such a bargain for... More

Amazing site. Beauty awaits around every corner from your first step Into the Patio des Armes to the top of the tallest tower. Many centuries of life all sympathetically preserved and fully explained. Allow at least 2 hours so you can rest in the shade and soak in the atmosphere. Very good value for money at 5€ and less than... More

On a very hot afternoon, after an indulgent sherry-tasting, five of us set off for the Alcazar. We received a smiling welcome at reception, and paid the very reasonable entrance fee. National Trust, take note. In the first week in July, at about 1.30pm on a Monday afternoon, there weren't many visitors. An introductory film was available to see in... More

We were guided round the house by the current owner. It has been in the same family for hundreds of years and as we walked around we were given A full explanation of every detail about the rooms and their contents. From the paintings to the furniture and ornaments. And the dining room where ever King of Spain has eaten.... More

Once we found our way in, having asked a couple of locals on the way, it was lovely. Very calm and peaceful, beautiful architecture, nice palace with the camera oscura, good information in Spanish and English and lovely views over Jerez. Must do if you are in the city.

And it has a camera obscurer and a lovely guide who speaks excellent English. Little difficult to find the entrance...not well signed but we directed several tourists on our way back to the town. Turn right past the tourist information and it's on the left a short distance away overlooking the cathedral. Worth preserving to find it. I think the... More

We visit the Alcazar and were pleasantly surprised after seeing some of the reviews. If you are in Jerez it's definitely worth a visit. Pretty gardens and an interesting bathhouse

This is a place worth going... Anciënt history, The buildings and The setting are more than a simpel museum... It is The heart of The old town... Do not forget to go.
