Saturday Optional Journey- Trip toSanlucar de Barrameda in Cadiz.
This stately town situated on the left of the mouth of the River Guadalquivir and opposite Doñana Natural Park has been declared Historic Ensemble. The Barrio Alto is the historic centre with the town’s monuments, narrow streets, white house fronts and aristocratic palaces such as the Palace of Orleáns y Borbón (beside the Basílica de NuestraSeñora de la Caridad) or the Renaissance Palacio Ducal de Medina Sidonia. Going down the Cuesta Belén towards the Barrio Bajo, there is the 15th century ‘Covachas’ -the best example of Gothic architecture in the town– which decorate one of the façades of the Dukes Palace. The Plaza de San Roque is the site of the wonderful atmosphere of the Market Place, full colour and local flavour, with its stall-holders singing the praises of their products at the tops of their voices.
The genuine microclimate of the town is essential to the ageing of manzanilla –the most representative of the local wines – which is included in the Designation of Origin Jerez-Xeres-Sherry.
