    Palace of Time or Clock Museum

    Palace of Time

    The Palace of Time is a collection of over 300 clocks and watches from 17 - 19th centuries. There are clocks of many styles and types from France, England, Austria and Italy and they are all in working order.

    The collection was the prized possession of a rich wine merchant and is beautifully displayed. As you would expect with such a valuable collection, security is tight.

    In addition, there are some excellent special effects and some very clever life-sized holograms which make a very modern display.

    It was a worthwhile visit and if you are especialy interested in horology you would cross continents to see this.

    Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 10.00-2.00 and 5.00-6.00pm. Sun: 10.00-2.00pm.

    Entry: 5.10 euros each.

    (Our visit was in 2003 so it would be worth checking the website for times and prices).

    The Clock Museum

    Or the clock museum.

    Situated on the north side of the centre near the equestrian school. A fascinating collection of over three hundred 17th, and 18th century clocks, all in working order.

    See the web-site for more information. I quote "In the 18th Century, the Century of Light, a wine merchant decided to settle in Jerez.
    Obsessed with controlling time, he started to collect French, English, Austrian and Italian clocks in order to decorate the rooms in his enormous mansion."
