Archaeological remains from when the city was known as Xera to the Phoenicians, Ceret to the Romans and most importantly, Sherish to the Moors, merge with the beauty of the later Christian buildings to offer a wide range of architectural styles and distinctive constructions that combine to give Jerez a truly exclusive urban appearance of great beauty. Few places in Spain are known to enjoy such a vast international prestige. Because of its wine, Jerez or Sherry, the name of the city crossed international borders many years ago and has since become truly universal.

Holiday Paradise, with the best beaches in Europe

La Costa de la Luz is the atlantic part of the southern spanish coast and beaches, in the provinces of Huelva and Cadiz . Located between the famous Costa del SOL on the Mediterranean and the Algarve coast in Portugal, it was also known as the “forgotten coast”.

Now it is a growing destination for people that not only want to enjoy sun and beach but have a taste of unspoiled nature and culture too. Most of its beaches are still rather natural, reasonably uncorrupted, not extremely massified and with hardly any concrete skylines that damage the beautiful natural environments and the views.

Beach is nature! On the Costa de la Luz you are reminded that beaches are actually a part of nature and not some kind of extension of an urban agglomeration. And you can still taste the authentic Andalusian atmosphere in its many small and picturesque towns.

Towns on the Costa de la Luz in the province of Cadiz North-west to south east:
