Sanlùcar de Barrameda Things to Do

  • Palacio de Medina Sidonia

    Built in the XIII century, this 'Palacio' is belonging since then to Duques de Medina Sidonia family. Guided visits are organized normally on sunday (need to reserve), but one charming side of the building and the garden serves as 'cafè' and open every day from 8.30 to 21.00 (02.00 in summer). Another side of the building serves as 'hospederia'...

  • Visiting Salinas in Bonanza

    If you decide to visit the Salinas and Bonanza in Sanlucar, please consider that is not so easy! You could reserve your visit by touristic train calling the provided number (cost:12 euros), but it's normally necessary to reach a sufficient number of people (they didn't say how many). So if you are 2 or 3 persons it's better to organize a visit on...

  • Castillo de Santiago

    Surrounded by buildings that make up the extensive Barbadillo sherry bodega, the remains of the 15th century castle can be viewed but not entered as it is currently closed until funding can be secured to complete renovations. It's a short walk east of the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la 0.

  • Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la 0

    Built in the 15th century, the church has an interesting neo-Muslim doorway and according to guidebooks has a beautiful Mujedar ceiling which we were not able to view because it was late on a Sunday evening when we visited.

    This building with neo-Muslim and Baroque architectural elements on its exterior was once used as a summer home for a powerful Sanlucar family in the 19th century.

  • Seafood and nice service

    Ok, Sanlucar is the kingdom of 'pescaito frito' and pratically everywhere you can eat wonderful and fresh seafood...But La Chiquitina is a nice 'chiringuito' (kiosk) just in the middle of Calzada del Ejercito (the principal pedestrian way to the sea), when you can sit informally and eat tapas or huge portions of the best and fresh seafood in town!...

    more
  • Great Seafood Tapas

    In the northwest corner of the center of town, the Plaza del Cabildo, Cafe Balbino has a staggering selection of fresh seafood. The best way to sample a lot of different things is to purchase tapas, the small plate size servings that can be shared by everyone at your table. Most servings are less than 3 euros. They have menus in various languages...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sanlúcar de Barrameda is in the very south of Spain, so that, it's quite far from anywhere, but it is worth a visit.

    The closest airport is in Jerez de la Frontera, which is about 25 kms. away.

    For information about it, go to my Cádiz page or log on www.aena.es/csee/Satellite?pagename=subHome&Language=ES_ES&c=Page&SiteName=XRY&cid=1048519503361

    or you can go to Sevilla, wich is about 124 kms. away.
    The site of this airport, is: www.aena.es/csee/Satellite?cid=1048243388846&pagename=subHome&Language=ES_ES&SiteName=SVQ&c=Page

    In both cases, there are English versions.

    Some road distances from Sanlúcar de Barrameda (or just Sanlúcar) to:
    - Cádiz: 52 kms.
    - Madrid: 649 kms.
    - Moscow (Russia): 4.691 kms.
