Real Escuela

by froesjel Online Now Feb 14, 2008 at 4:24 PM

Hello,
we'll stay in Sevilla from 16 untill 24th of June. On the 19th we're going to Jerez to see the Analusian Horse show. We've allready purchased our tickets but I'm not sure if these tickets are only for the show or if they also allow us to visit the stables etc.
Can anyone tell us the fare for a taxi from Jerez station to the Real Escuela?
We'd also like to go and see the Gonzales Byass bodega (to see the mice). Can we do both in one day (how long does the bodega-tour takes?)and can we go from the Real Escuela to the bodega on foot?
And again, what would be the fare for a taxi from bodega Gonzales Byass to the Jerez station?
Thanks a lot

    If you get to the riding establishment before the show starts you can watch the horses practicin in the open air ring and tour the outside stable areas. For Gonzales Byass look at http://www.bodegastiopepe.com/
    The Tio Pepe bodega is situated on the south side of the 'castle' and is quite a long way to walk so a taxi would be best unless you want a stretch. Maybe about one hour. Not sure. jerez is a bit confusing so you need a map but essentially after leaving the riding place you head for the centre of town and the shopping street called Calle Larga. Shops stay open until about 2 pm. Head straight up the pedestrianised shopping street and then continue over to find the large square Plaza Arenal then over this and you will find the 'castle' or Alcazar then Tio Pepe is on the other side.
    There are other bodegas to visit nearer the riding school or between the riding school and the train station but not sure about afternoon visits as much of Spain closes for lunch from 2pm.
