Jerez Corners - Rincones de Jerez




It's easy, finding special corners when you walk in Jerez, 
Its arab origin is one of the reasons.
Dead end streets, corners, narrow little street.
Es fácil encontrar rincones especiales al pasear por Jerez,
su origen árabe es una de las razones.
Calles sin salida, recodos, callejuelas estrechas.




Saint Marcos Neighbourhood
Barrio de San Marcos






Streets, where houses and palaces were built 
after the reconquer 
by The King Alfonso X the Wise.
Calles, donde se construyeron casas y 
palacios tras la reconquista
por el Rey Alfonso X el Sabio.

Spring is one of the best seasons 
to visit Jerez. 
Orange trees laden of blossom, 
all over the city





Cloisters of Santo Domíngo
Claustros de Santo Domíngo



The convent of Santo Domingo was one of the first built after the reconquer outside the Arab Wall S. XIII
Cloisters were built in the S. XV  and nowadays belong to the Town Council 
El Convento de Santo Domíngo fue uno de los primeros en edificarse tras la reconquista fuera de la muralla en el S.XIII
Los Claustros se edificaron en el S. XV y en la actualidad pertenecen al Ayuntamiento

Every corner has something special
to show you.

enseñarte

  3. Dearest Marina,
    Oh, how heavenly it would be to walk the streets during the time of the orange blossoms... The cloister is loaded with beauty and history. Your region is so rich in cultural treasures to the New World here.
