Often overlooked in favor of more famous Andalucian cities, Jerez is about as Spanish as it gets. The city dates back to the Moorish occupation, and even at this time it became famous for its sweet wines, which the British named "sherry". Jerez is called "de la Fronter", like many towns in Andalucia because it once stood on the frontier between the Moorish and the Christian realms.
