Fodor's Review

Once the residence of the caliph of Seville, the 12th-century Alcázar and its small, octagonal mosque and baths were built for the Moorish governor's private use. The baths have three sections: the sala fria (cold room), the larger sala templada (warm room), and the sala caliente (hot room) for steam baths. In the midst of it all is the 17th-century Palacio de Villavicencio, built on the site of the original Moorish palace. A

camera obscura, a lens-and-mirrors device that projects the outdoors onto a large indoor screen, offers a 360-degree view of Jerez.
