We will set off for the area of Jerez de la Frontera, to enjoy what we believe is the best of Andalusian culture. We will first stop over at Arcos, whose whitewashed walls stand out against the surrounding lush green landscape. This little town is a perfect example of the beautiful white villages called Pueblos Blancos, usually perched over a cliff. We will then travel to the city of Jerez, known especially for the world famous Sherry wine.* Jerez, though, also stands out for its ancient horse raising tradition. This is why we will not miss a unique equestrian ballet at the city’s Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. The unique show, “How the Andalusian Horses Dance”, we will watch the beautiful horses dancing to the sound of Spanish traditional music, with a choreography based on classical dressage, doma vaquera and traditional equestrian chores. In the afternoon, we will enjoy a brief tour of the city, including the town’s Moorish castle, known as the Alcazaba. Later, we will visit one of the most famous and ancient Jerez wineries, where we will be shown the Sherry making process. A final tasting of the best local wines will make our day just perfect.
