“Oasis of calm”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Very interesting history, & lovely to stroll round the small garden as the flowers were beautiful.
Great views from the towers across Jerez.
Go early I think it opened at 10am to as we had the place to ourselves.

“Fun for all, but definitely still under development”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

You get the sense that the site hasn't exploited its full potential yet, and when we visited in January 2012 much was under construction. The views from on high are spectacular and the site has lots to offer educationally for the whole family, but it is only worth going if you are already going to Jerez for other reasons (horses, sherry tasting, Subaru service?) and have time and children in tow...

“Atmospheric and interesting”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Friendly staff who are learning English. Very welcoming.
I agree with Robert K "Well worth the time" . But a National Trust style cafe would be an asset as there was nowhere to get refreshments when we visited in November

“Well worth the time.”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Situated at the top of the city this ensures some good views of the surrounding area. Whats left is well kept and it has a couple of unusual items, the camera oscura - one of not very many in Europe and in the old olive press, one of the biggest (wooden) beam levers I have ever seen, quite amazing. The old pharmacy was a quite splendid room with original polished paneling and shelving on display. Close by there was a large open market and a side art market in progress while we were there and being next to the city Cathedral and plaza means you do not have to walk too far between attractions.
