Jerez de la Frontera Private Tapas Walking Tour with Food Market

Spain's Andalusia region—and the city of Jerez de la Frontera—is known around the world for its fortified sherry wine and savory tapas. But for foodies traveling through Jerez, it's challenging to unpack the city's insider food culture. On this private tapas tour, you'll follow a local guide through the old town's winding streets and courtyards to experience the city's best flavors, with drinks and tapas included. This tour pairs a market visit with stops at celebrated tapas bars to create a near-perfect, traditional culinary experience.

Cute church. Intricate carved facade although eroded and careworn. Usual stuff inside. Whizz round it and go back to the cafes on the square for a good view of the storks on the church roof. Much more interesting than the inside of the church itself. Well worth a stop.

There have been some renovation works undertaken here to some of the external stonework, due to some degradation over time since construction in the latter 1400s and 1500s. This remains a grand working church of the Gothic style and period, with the usual religious statues and other accoutrements and so typically and distinctively, Spanish and also, following an earthquake in the 1600s, some Baroque elements were added as part of a rebuild. The resident storks are not currently there but their nests are, awaiting their return from winter homes. El Puerto de Santa Maria has some major building of interest and this is one of many. The chapels, doorways and spaces, show the architectural diversity and associations with various local families and figures, this having been a major centre in the early days of Spanish mercantile growth and operations.

Upon approaching the gothic façade, which I later learned to have survived the 1636 earthquake, I honestly thought the church must be closed. Grass sprouts from the buttresses! But when we entered the main square and saw the newer façade. Well, I still wasn’t sure - but there was an entrance! 1€ each? But what an interior! Impressive vault, minimal but gorgeous stained glass casting rainbows on the walls, and some of the most interesting chapel arrangements I’ve ever seen. We walked around in wonder - along with maybe a half-dozen other tourists - the church was practically empty. Truly a wonderful sight, though badly in need of TLC for it to survive another century.

Built by master craftsmen, in a style that will never be repeated, all these centuries later I'm not a 'religious' person, but I admired what they thought they were commemorating!.
