  • L Alcazar is well worth a visit, you can discover the history of Jerez and attend the explanation made the dark Chamber, a real projection system that works like the submarine telescope.

  • 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. 
  • Aesthetically very beautiful! Do not know if is visited but I would have liked see it by inside. Outside the "people" who frequent it give little, in addition to an unfortunate image sleeping mona in banks or littering the surrounding of this monument remains of food!
