Cadiz or Jerez?

by unaS

As part of a month long visit to Andalucia, I will be spending 3 nights in either Cadiz or Jerez. Haven't quite decided yet...recommendation for both abound.

Question 1 - From Granada, which one is easier to get to ? Train or bus?

Question 2 - From which one is it easier to get to La Linea/Algeciras for a day trip to Gibraltar? Bus/train?

Cadiz used to be the major city in South West Andalucia and still is an important city for administration purposes. But nowadays Jerez has grown like topsy and is now the largest city in CADIZ PROVINCE. Think around 200,00 inhabitants.

Both cities have links by bus to Algeciras/La Linea although perhaps the bus from Cadiz that will stop at Algeciras on the way to La Linea means less getting off a bus and getting on another.

Best to look at times on TG COMES who are the large Cadiz Province based bus operator and LINESUR who have a service from Jerez bus to Algeciras.

www.tgcomes.es
www.linesur.com (seems only to work on Internet Explorer with me)

Now in reverse order, getting from Granada means quite a long journey by bus but you could stop over in Malaga if you wanted or somewhere else. Buses from Granada to Malaga are quite frequent: www.alsa.es for exmaple. And there are options for then going on to Cadiz or indeed Jerez. But both journeys will be long. You can look at the Malaga Bus Terminal web site to get some ideas of times and destinations:
http://www.estabus.emtsam.es/

Or you can take a train from Granada to Seville then get a train down to Jerez or Cadiz. In practice you can change at Dos Hermanas which is a little south of Seville. But study the connections and if they mean a long wait then you might as well go into Seville Santa Justa station.

On balance getting from Granada to Jerez or Cadiz may be more pleasurable on the train rather than bus.

As a last afterthought, it is possible to take the train from Granada to Ronda (on the Algeciras route) and look around Ronda then take a bus from Ronda to Jerez or Cadiz ! You need to look at COMES again -Rutas Pueblos Blancos. Ronda bus station is close to the rail station.

Or sit on the train down to Algeciras and then walk over the road to the bus terminal and take the bus to either Cadiz or Jerez.

CHOICES make our life quite tricky.

Direct train from Jerez to the Frontera for the walk into Gib. It is a great train trip thru some canyons and parkland - one of the best in Spain.

We just got back and enjoyed Jerez a lot. Give the sherry tour a miss.

Thanks Rod. That is interesting...

Interesting and in many ways bizarre. Bit I don't get is the direct train from Jerez to Gib.

Travel Tips for Granada

Hangin Out with the Dudes

by johnnyo

I was on a tour, and as tours go, they can get boring. So I took a seat with these older Spanish dudes and we got to chatting. It turns out this one guy's niece goes to UCLA. That was pretty cool. I would have been down for some serious day drinking with these old timers - I bet they have some stories!

THE JARDINES DE PARTAL

by BerniShand

you see, I told you that the sun would shine and the sky would turn blue, look, its reflected in the pool, these gardens were built after the Moors were forced out of Granada, but they are still very old and beautiful, they lead towards the Church of Santa Maria de la Alhambra, there used to be a Mosque where it stands, which was for the people of the Medina, but it was destroyed and in the 17th century this church was built here

lets go and get a cup of hot chocolate before we visit the Palace of Carlos V, although the sun is shining its quite cool

Granada CF

by raquelitalarga

Tickets to watch Granada CF football team are a lot cheaper than for similiar level clubs in, for example, England. They play alternate Sundays, kickoff at 5pm.
They regularly have crowds of 8000 and the whole city celebrated when they went up to the second league in 2010. Wear red and white!

Magnificent canyons

by Sharrie

The coach was traveling along these canyons for almost 2 hours while heading towards Valencia. A very scenic route; but I think most people onboard were asleep now...Wished Victoria (that's my guide) had told us what's their names.

To the Alhambra

by bonio

It's a pleasant 20 minute walk to the Alhambra from the city centre, and it's uphill. If you're not feeling energetic go on the minibus (Alhambrabus) which wait at the bottom of Cuesta de Gomerez. Cost is 95 cents (Jan 2006)
