Places in Cádiz Province & Gibraltar
The Sherry Triangle
North of Cádiz, the towns of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa María form the three corners of the 'sherry triangle.' Even if Andalucía's unique, smooth wine isn't your cup of tea, you'll still find these three towns historically compelling.
Costa de la Luz & The Southeast
Arriving on the Costa de la Luz from the Costa del Sol is like opening the window and breathing in the fresh air. Bereft of tacky resorts and unplanned development, suddenly you can breathe again. More to the point, you’re unequivocally back in Spain; a world of flat-capped farmers and clacking dominoes, grazing bulls and Sunday mass followed by a furtive slug of dry sherry.
Jerez de la Frontera
Stand down all other claimants. Jerez, as most savvy Spain-o-philes know, is Andalucía. It just doesn’t broadcast the fact in the way that Seville and Granada do. As a result, few people plan their trip around a visit here, preferring instead to jump-cut to the glories of the Giralda and the Alhambra. If only they knew.
