Nature

Jerez offers a wide range of possibilities when it comes to enjoying the countryside and getting back to nature: be it a leisurely stroll around the city itself or through any of its numerous parks and gardens, the enjoyment of the nearby protected natural areas, parks and reserves of special botanical and ornithological interest, or the opportunity to participate in an endless choice of outdoor activities which take place in the extensive surrounding countryside and nearby hills.

 

The city abounds with numerous gardens and designated green areas; some of them behind the walls of the sherry wineries themselves, where numerous species of animal and vegetation are to be seen, many of the latter having been brought from South America over a century ago by the winery owners. There are also plentiful areas of wetland around the city where many different species of birds may be observed throughout the year.

 

Worthy of special mention is the Jerez Zoological and Botanical Garden, created in 1953, where different zoological and botanical collections of great interest are placed on show to the public, this being one of the most important in all Spain. Of special importance are its conservation, reproduction and reinsertion programmes for those species upon the very verge of extinction, as well as the activities of its Environmental Education Programme.
