The Cathedral was built in the XVII in three different styles:
Baroque, gothic and neo classical
La Catedral se construyó en tres estilos diferentes:
Barroco, gótico y neoclásico





The result is an odd mixture and it isn't considered as a nice building.Here you are some photos that my husband and me took last Saturday.
El resultado en una mezcla extraña y no es considerada como un edificio bonito. Aquí tenéis  algunas fotos que mi marido y yo hicimos el sábado pasado.

  8. That's wonderful, Marina! I have never seen any pics of Jerez although the name is familiar to me due to the Jerez brandy... although.... I have never tried it! Have a lovely week, Christa

    1. Thank you very much Christa! There are other wines apart from brandy like, Fino, Oloroso, Amontillado, Cream and Pedro Ximenez. I wish you could taste some of them. I don't usually drink alcohol but sometimes in parties, I hold the wine glass in hand, took a sip and I smell it
