Jerez de la Frontera Jerez, the most elegant and proudest city in the province of Cadis, is also the most populated one, with 181,000 inhabitants. It is famous worldwide for its sherry wine, its horses and its flamenco, whose paternity is disputed with Seville. To learn how sherry wines are made it is advisable to visit Domecq, Gonzalez Byass, Sandeman and Williams & Humbert breweries. Jerez horses, on the other hand, demonstrate in the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. The world of flamenco has got the Andalusian Centre for Flamenco. Jerez was one of the first cities to be founded by the Arabs in the Peninsula; from the Sahrish musulmana, there remain pieces of the old wall, a castle and the 11-century Arab baths. Other points of interests are: the cathedral, San Miguel and Santiago churches and other four dedicated to the evangelists. The Horse Fair (mid-May) with taming and riding demonstrations, and the Grape-harvest Feast (the first week in September) are unforgettable moments.
CadisAfter being occupied by Cartaginese, Romans, and Arabs, Cadis was conquered by Alfonso X in 1262, and was rebuilt and fortified. It biggest splendour was reached in the 18 century, with the moving of the Casa de la Contratación, in charge of the American affairs, from Seville to Cadis. From this town, the Franco-Spanish fleet, which was annihilated at Trafalgar by the British (1805), set off and here it was also promulgated the first Spanish Constitution (1812), popularly known as La Pepa. Carnival is the big Cadis event - without a doubt, the most famous in Spain - with its choir's competitions, and two spectacular parades: the Carnival Sunday and the Piñata.
Costa de la Luz The Atlantic waters soak the golden and tranquil beaches that lay along the entire Cadis province coast, form the Guadalquivir mouth to Tarifa, in the peninsular, deep south. A car trip of about 160 Km offers the chance of seeing the following sights: Sanlúcar de Barrameda, a fishing town located in the Guadalquivir mouth, Chipiona, an important summer resort, with wonderful beaches, Rota with its wall-surrounded old town, El Puerto de Santa María, with an important fishing centre, sherry exporting port, and beaches and golf resorts and Tarifa, a wind-blown town where the Atlantic and Mediterranean air masses meet, which makes it one of the best places in Europe to practice windsurfing.
White town's route This 230-Km route can be split into two halves, from Arcos to Ronda (southwards, 100 Km) and coming back from the North (130 Km). There one can find the "pinsapo" a type of evergreen that covered the Mediterranean basin during the pre-historical ages. The beauty of the landscape is underlined by white towns hanging on top of cliffs and rocks, with narrow steep streets, which are overlooked, from top of the mountain, by the ancient remains of either a castle or a church.
Arcos de la Frontera Its old town has such beautiful ancient buildings such as the palace of the Count of Aguila (15 century), with its Gothic-Mudejar porch, the castle of De Arcos dukes and the city hall. The church of Santa Maria de la Asuncion (13-14 centuries), with a Gothic-Plateresc façade, and the church of San Pedro, a mix of Baroque and Plateresc.
