We were in Jerez to see the Flamenco Institute. It closed at 2 so we had time before we needed to return to Cadiz. We walked past the cathedral and went to the Alcazar. At the time (in May 2014) the entrance was being worked on so we walked all the way around before we noticed how to get in.

There are many areas of the site to see. They have a pharmacy upstairs. The grounds are interesting too. Many of the places have been excavated to show their original use. They have a massive press for making olive oil.

There was a small fee, about 5 euros as I recall.

We were in Jerez planning to visit a bodega but had arrived early with time to spare. As the Alcazar was right next to the bodega it seemed a good option. On arrival it transpired that there is free entry on a Monday morning! A nice surprise. It was also very quiet, so we were able to wander around, explore and soak up the atmosphere almost on our own. Certainly worth a visit.

The Alcazar is at the highest hill, so it has the greatest views of Jerez and the surrounding valleys and mountains. It also gives you a perspective on the advanced andaluzian culture where science, art and tolerance flourished. A not to miss visit while in Jerez and even worth the trip from nearby Sevilla or Cadiz.

This was an interesting visit and it is well worth paying the extra to have the headphone tour. At the time of our visit it was very quite which gave a very peaceful atmosphere.
