Nestling in the southwest of Andalusia, in the northwest-of the province of Cadiz, Jerez enjoys a truly privileged geographical location: lying in a fertile area formed by the plain of the Guadalquivir, on the banks of the river Guadalete and just a short drive from both the Atlantic beaches and the Gaditana mountain range. A marvellous geographical situation, midway between the mountainside and the coast with over 3,200 hours of sunshine, graces the town with mild temperatures all year round. As a result of the gentleness of the climate, with average temperatures of 11º C in winter and 25º C in summer, softened by both its proximity to the sea and its very geographical latitude, winters are mild and summers are pleasant.
Jerez is strategically located with excellent transport connections, not just within Andalusia, but also with the rest of Spain and Europe. The recently built international airport has the most modern facilities and provides easy connections with major national and international destinations; the recently restored railway station provides rail links to major cities and provincial capitals. Finally, a complete network of major roads and motorways facilitates quick, comfortable access and transport facilities to nearby towns as well as other Spanish capitals.
Jerez has world-renowned attractions that make our city one of the most complete and appealing destinations in Andalucia; the horses, wine, brandy and Flamenco are typical of Andalucia and Spain, and are differentiating features that fully define and give identity to our city.
