Jerez and Cadiz Day Trip from Seville

82 reviews
Enrich your cultural knowledge of southern Spain on a full-day tour to Jerez and Càdiz from Seville. First, travel through the natural splendor of the Andalusian countryside to a rural winery, near Jerez, and taste refined samples of locally grown wine. Watch an exhilarating performance of ‘How Andalusian Horses Dance’ at an equestrian school and then venture to the alluring coastal city of Càdiz to explore independently. See impressive historical monuments on a panoramic coach tour of the ancient metropolis and absorb the rustic charm of the whitewashed Old Town before returning to Seville by comfortable coach.

This delightful museum of clocks and watches is housed in an enormous mansion at the end of a side street in Jerez. A peasant way to spend an afternoon. We had a guided tour all to ourselves too as we were the only ones there - marvelous. Highly recommended

A little disappointed that we could not get a guided tour in English, despite the information leaflet saying this was possible. We were really looking forward to getting lots of information about all the clocks on display. As it was we had to make do with going round by ourselves. The clocks are amazing and the sound of them all chiming 12 noon together is beautiful. Some parts of the rooms are very dark and could do with better lighting. The gardens are a decent size, but it's a pity they appear to have been left untended. None of the water features had water in them. But you could see just how beautiful they could be given a little TLC

Set in lovely gardens, you need to go to the ticket office first which is a separate building on the left if you come in via Calle Cervantes (there is free parking in this street), tickets are €6 or €3 if 65 or over. We went to the 12.30 tour and didn’t need to prebook, there were 2 guides available, one lady who did our tour in fluent English and another lady who took 2 Spanish speakers on their tour. Our guide was fantastic and although we enjoyed having her all to ourselves it was a real travesty that we were the only ones on the tour. There are 2 floors to the museum with a lift up to the second floor. The story behind the museum is fascinating involving auctions and money laundering amongst other things. Our guide took us around the exhibits pointing out particularly interesting details and explaining things about them that we would have missed on our own, she was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the artefacts. We had plenty of time to look at the timepieces and the tour did go over the allocated time which was very generous of her. There is also a large display of walking sticks and a couple of tapestries here as well. Again the walking sticks have the most amazing heads to them and striking designs, such as ivory made to resemble bamboo. The museum gives you a fascinating insight into how timepieces evolved and the craftsmanship and skill involved is breathtaking. There is every sort of timepiece here, from public clocks and huge grandfather clocks to exquisite pocket watches and every theme covered from circus themed clocks to a sailor steering a ship. We would definitely recommend a visit here, we are not particularly interested or knowledgeable about timepieces but you don’t have to be to enjoy this museum.

Beautiful collection of clocks. Not just glass cases with clocks but accompanied by music, light and very beautiful decor. There is also a few walking sticks and pocket watches to see. Would recommend everyone to go here. Go there just before the hour to hear to clocks pass the hour.
