Alcazar Jerez De La Frontera - Review
Giving visitors the opportunity to behold the charm of what was once a Moorish alcazar, the Alcazar Jerez de la Frontera is counted as one of the best things to do in Jerez for more reasons than one. The park inside this palace is what is the main highlight of the structure apart from its glorious history. Strolling across this property you will notice a gamut of fruit trees fringing walls that bestow visitors with sweeping views of the adjoining region. The displays here, in various languages are perfect for multilingual visitors. A structure built in the 11th-century, this place features fortifying walls, Octagonal Tower, Tower of Ponce de León, Patio de Doña Blanca, a mosque and some baths. One place that has got to be on every history nerd’s list!

Alcazar Jerez De La Frontera, Jerez Reviews
It's a great place for a quick visit. It would probably only take you about an hour to see everything, but in summer that's probably all you'd want to spend before retreating somewhere cool. The towers offer great views of the city. There are exhibitions of expo posters and old apothecary type equipment available free but you can pay extra to see the Jerez camera oscura demonstration (They are in different languages so check with reception which would be best for you). There are an orchard, some nice gardens and the exposed remains of the lower levels to see, as well as the fortification walls and a few odd buildings for various purposes. There are regular shows available but we didn't see any that day.
Ok so it is not on the scale of the Alhambra but this is a great example of the Moorish/Spanish cross-over in use, style and layout. A beautifully simple yet evocative Mazquita is well preserved and largely unchanged from it's original state. There are some good views of the country surrounding Jerez as well as views of the Cathedral. Well worth a visit.
Loving archaeological restoration. We paid an early visit on Sunday morning so could really appreciate the space. Good explanation in Spanish and English
Well worth a visit. Friendly staff and great views. Also a very peaceful place to visit. I was here on a Sunday morning in August. Very few people and wandering around to the sound of running fountain water is very relaxing.
Very interesting and well preserved history. Lovely gardens. Self guided tour. Worth seeing!
