First constructed in the 11th century by Andalusia’s Moorish rulers, Alcazar Jerez de la Frontera is an imposing and elegant monument to the history of southern Spain. The fortress has massive fortified towers and 4,000 m (13,123 ft) of walls designed to protect its inhabitants from attack. Climb to the tops of these lookouts for sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. Wander the lush gardens inside the keep, complete with intricate fountains and flowering plants, and explore the former bathhouse complex. Discover Jerez’s only remaining mosque structure, which was converted into a church after the European conquest of the city, and enriches the castle’s varied architectural heritage.
