Surrounded by vineyards and with over 30 bodegas (wine cellars) devoted to the making of sherry and brandy, you’d be forgiven for thinking that’s all Jerez is about. But this aristocratic city with an ancient heart, unusual museums, an atmospheric gypsy quarter and some outstanding architecture, is also the cradle of flamenco, the home of the magnificent ‘dancing’ Andalucian horses, the capital of motorcycle racing and famed for its bullfights.
