Dreamy, Artistic … JEREZ and CÁDIZ

Following our tour of Andalucía, we (Salli and I) took a train from Sevilla to Jerez.  Known for its sherry wine, horses, and flamenco…Jerez, in southern Spain, is home to the ancient Moorish fortress Alcazar, and the Cathedral of Jerez.

I found it to be very inter-generational, people of all ages mingling together…even throughout the night, as we witnessed during the Catholic observance of Corpus Christi this June.  During this time (60 days after Easter), residents stay up all night to ‘paint’ the streets with colored salt.  In the following days, processions will walk over these paintings and they will dissolve into the dust.

A guided iPhone tour of Andalucía can be yours too.  Along with Salli Gutierrez of Spain-Connection.com (and moi), a small group of adventurers will travel to Madrid, Córdoba, Sevilla, and Jerez, in beautiful historic southern Spain from October 4 through October 13, 2014.  Click here for more information.  Time’s a wasting so sign up now!

PS: All photos taken with the iPhone 4s or 5s…it took a lot of courage for me to travel from the U.S. to Spain without my trusty Canon, just FYI.
