As you travel, listen to the audio commentary to learn more about Jerez de la Frontera and the gorgeous, sunbaked region of Andalucia. Perhaps hop off at the iconic Alcázar, an 11th or 12th century Moorish fortress that is recognized as one of the best preserved Almohad-era relics in Andalucia. Marvel at its impressive octagonal tower and wander through the pretty gardens, pausing at the star-shaped fountain for photos. Seek shade in the cloistered patios, then explore the mosque and ancient Arab Baths. Make your way to the top of one of the towers for 360-degree views of the city projected through the lenses and mirrors of a camera obscura. Later, maybe stop by the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. Wander around the sun-dappled grounds, set around a palace that was designed by Charles Garnier, and watch the school’s horses being exercised. Then, head inside to explore the two museums, one dedicated to carriages and the other to equestrian arts, where you can learn more about this traditional Spanish riding discipline.
