This beautiful monastery survived because the gate held! Inside the monastery is home to a closed community of nuns but the church is simply amazing, serene and peaceful. A memorable experience after the hustle and bustle of Jerez

It's a little bit far away from Jerez. It's near Albarizones, rather. About the acces, it's easy to get there If you have or even if you have a bike, you can take the path bike. I like the architecture.

This is old building, wich on first sight gives awe. Located in Jerez entrance from highway, you just have to stop by. Silence and high heavy walls. Very interesting architecture. Quite unusual.

This working convent is housed in one if the most beautiful buildings of Spain. Just outside the city of Jerez, it is a beautiful example of Spanish religious architecture.

I think the Cartuja is about 4or 5 km from central Jerez, and it would make a nice bike ride or even a nice walk if it is not very hot. About restaurants I think you could easily eat at Jerez .
