Aspects of Andalucía & Gibraltar

A relaxed classic resort stay itinerary to discover the scenic and cultural beauty of Western Andalucía including Jerez, Cádiz and Gibraltar whilst based in the riverside port of El Puerto de Santa María

The western area of the Cádiz province is often overshadowed by the main sites of the region of Andalucía, however this small province has much to offer and is full of splendid delights to discover. Stay in a historic hotel in a charming, small port, convenient for included daily excursions.

Cádiz is a historic port town and founded by the Phoenicians in 1100 BC. The Romans later occupied the town as a naval base and subsequently the town became a very useful port during the discovery of the Americas and trade between the two continents in the 18th century. Cádiz turned into one of the richest and most cosmopolitan cities in Spain, with most of its fine buildings from this era.

The famous fortified sherry wine is produced in the sherry making towns of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Jerez being world famous and where the British were largely responsible for the development of wineries in the area since the 1830’s and also where the name ‘sherry’ is derived from. The town is also host to one of four remaining schools of classical dressage in the world – the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art.
