A few words about Jerez

The town is known as Jerez, but its full name is Jerez de la Frontera. In French, its name is Xerès, whose wines and vinegars have made its reputation.

This town in Andalusia is in the province of Cadiz.

A few words about the horse festival

Like the Cadiz Carnival, the Jerez Horse Fair is one of the rare festivals to be recognised as being of International Tourist Interest.

This fair has very ancient origins, dating back to the Middle Ages, in the 13th century (1284). Back then, it was a livestock fair!
