Those who are planning a trip to Jerez de la Frontera, Spain should also consider
employing our Jerez car hire services when they create the budget for their trip. Jerez is
one of the major cities in Andalucia and while it may not be the same type of tourist
attractions that other places in the region are, it is a major transportation, logistics and
economic center for the region.
However the place does see its fair share of tourists and visitors, and that is in part thanks
to the presence of an Airport which mostly deals with domestic flights, but there are a
few international flights that land here as well. The great part being, of course, that you
can employ our Jerez Airport car hire services and have the car of your choice ready and
waiting for you as soon as you touch down.
There are quite a few things to see in Jerez, for instance there a few attractions which
have survived since the Moorish period, these being the Moorish Palace-Fortress and
Dark Chamber. This fortress, or palaca or fortress/palace, was built in the early 10
century by the Moorish rulers of the town, but it was subsequently converted into a
Christian stronghold which means that the mosque it features was turned into a church,
but the place also had Arab baths, several towers, wonderful gardens, cloistered patios
and a fountain.
The town features quite a few museums but not nearly as many as it does palaces, this is
a town filled with palaces, ranging in architectural style and age, from the Palacio de
Campo Real which dates from the Middle Ages to the Bertemati Palace built in 1758, to
the relatively new Palacio de los Condes de Puerto Hermoso, built in 1873.
Similarly the place has a plethora of old churches as well, if you're interested in visiting
those, but there are also many daily activities one can engage in if one is interested in
getting a feel for the local life.
These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while in Jerez,
keep in mind that there are many more sights of importance in and around the city, and
with the help of our Jerez car rental services you can see these and many more.
