Relax for a panoramic drive past the most important highlights of Cadiz: Spain Square, Santa Catalina and San Sebastian Castle, La Caleta Beach and its fantastic scenery, the Roman Theater, the old Royal Prision, and the Puertas de Tierra walls that separate the new city from the Old Town. Drive through the new Cadiz to glimpse the lollipop-shaped telecom building, Victoria Beach and the hotel district of Cadiz. Watch for the all-important football (soccer) stadium as you head 30 miles out of town. Jerez de la Frontera is famous for its strong Moorish influence and is widely known as the sherry capital of the world. In fact, it was the town’s Moorish name, Scheris, which gave sherry wine its name. Tucked into the fertile hinterland of Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera enjoys its own microclimate, which enables the grapes to grow ripe and sweet. Visit the cellars, or bodegas as they are called in Spain, to learn about the process of making sherry, from grape cultivation to bottling. Taste the wine if you like before re-boarding your coach for the return ride to the pier.
Wear comfortable walking shoes.
