El Puerto de Santa Maria

El Puerto de Santa Maria

“El Puerto” –as the locals call it – is located on the mouth of the river Guadalete in the “Bahía de Cádiz.”

Along with Sanlúcar de Barrameda and Jerez de la Frontera, the city makes up the sherry-triangle, famous for its wines with the same name.

The numerous wine bodegas create a truly unique character in this city of one hundred “Palacios”.

From the “Plaza de Toros” or bullring, you can visit the old historic center with its many traditional “casas-palacio,” the “Castillo de Alfonso El Sabio,” the “Iglesia Mayor,” and uncountable tapa-bars and pubs.

Around the “Plaza de Abastos” (covered market), there is an ever-present lively and colorful atmosphere.

You can get in touch with the local flavor through a typical Andalusian breakfast in “Bar Vicente.”

The dunes with pine trees and white sandy beaches provide the necessary refreshment.

Through the calm waters of the “Bahía de Cádiz,” in just half an hour, the catamaran leaves you in the heart of Europe’s oldest city: Cádiz.

The international airport of Jerez can be reached in 20 min.

The train station connects the city with Cádiz in 20 min, and Seville in just one hour.

It will take you only four hours to get to the very center of Madrid.
