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.

  • less rich and great other Andalusian alcazar but still enjoyable to visit, includes a mosque, the Turkish baths, a garden, a mill with a huge wooden winepress, interesting the pharmacy in the main building, an interesting walk on walls, shame about the darkroom closed

  • Beautiful alcazar, especially the restored olive press is impressive! Beautiful grounds and view from the tower.

  • Nice of view and walking by the garden. Worthy of mention are the views from the octagonal tower. Also very interesting the Camera Obscura. With an hour of visit is more than enough.
