Anybody who loves history and architecture will love this. Sign posts with information explain in detail what each section of the place was used for etc. It is also a nice place to meander and look at the entire city from atop of the fortification.

TheAlcazar is relatively small but still very interesting. It houses an old olive press and Arabic baths. There is also a camera obscura. This place is well worth a short visit.

Great history and a birds eye view if you climb the wall and tower area. The gardens were nice and it was helpful to have the signage in English as well as Spanish.

The Alcazar in Jerez, built by the Muslims, modified by the Christians, shows the traces of hundreds of years of use as a fortress overlooking the growing city of Jerez. Still and archeological site, the ruins have been carefully and tastefully restored to give a true view of how the castle was actually used, assisted by well placed information tables... More

Much more extensive that I expected. And more complete with lovely gardens. Well worth a visit for a hour or two.

Alcazar - the medieval Arab fortress with high walls and strong towers. The entry ticket costs 5 euros. Few visitors, especially in comparison to the Alcazars in Seville and Granada. You can climb almost every wall. There are interesting premises for the collection and storage of water, wine production, baths, mesquite. It should be also mentioned the beautiful, shady, quiet...
