The oldest part of this building are the two towers, the baths and the prayer room. It is a beautiful building and a lot of attention to detail to bring the original building back to life. Well worth a visit and a chance to walk...More
This is a lovely place to visit ....lots of history & interesting views of Jerez! The baths have a great starry roof. Not as grand as the Alcazar in Seville but nice to spend a couple of hours exploring ....only 5 euros entrance as the...More

Hi, the Alcazar is a delightful place to wander for an hour or so. We simply turned up for its opening at 9.30 sharp, paid seven euros for a ticket at the pleasant reception and for about quarter of an hour we were the only ones there. By the time we left at around 10.45 the place was very full and the atmosphere of calm had completely gone. It is popular with coach day trippers who arrive about 10.00 and who fan out through the grounds getting in the way of your photos! Do the outside buildings and gardens first before exploring the fascinating apothecary upstairs in the main building and the camera obscura is well worth the extra two euros.
My advice would be to grab a coffee in your hotel bedroom, head for the Alcazar and then sit in the sun at one of the many great cafe bars and have a leisurely breakfast. Also don’t miss a trip to the horses in the equestrian school. A basic cost ticket for the show is adequate as every seat has a great view of the amazing horsemanship. Enjoy your trip!

Hi we know the area well although have never been in winter or been to Tangiers. Vejer de la frontera would be a good half way point for you between Seville and Gibraltar. We do villa holidays but there are several good hotels in the town. Cadiz is also worth a trip...there are loads of hotels there. We usually get a place in Peurto Santa Maria and catch the ferry to Cadiz as the parking is difficult in summer but you might be ok in December.
