This Renaissance building has a camera obscura formed by a set of lenses. Continue to the Jerez de la Frontera Cathedral, with its Gothic facade and gargoyles. Go down its stairs to reach the Plaza de la Encarnación. When crossing it, you will reach the Andalusian hammam. Once you are at the entrance, you feel peace thanks its many water sources. Its decoration makes you move to the East itself or to that Jerez from a few centuries ago. Its treatments are inspired by ancient ones.
On the way to the next stop you can see the Bertemati Palace. It was built by the marquises of the same name. The facade is baroque and from the wooden ceilings hang impressive lamps.

The Church of San Dionisio, Mudejar style, is in the middle of the street. This church is dedicated to the patron saint of Jerez because it was reconquered on its day. Continue to the Church of San Marcos. A few metres away you will find the Palace House of Pérez Luna. Like most palaces in Jerez, its style is Baroque and was part of a family of intellectuals.
Walk around the Plaza del Mamelón. See the different hotels around before retracing your steps and visit the Convent and, above all, the Convento de Santo Domingo. This was one of the first buildings that were built after the reconquest.
