Hammam Sancti Petri is less than 10 min walk away from Casa Isa Elena. It’s a reminder of the Moorish influence on this area of Andalucia and of just how close the Morrocan coast is.
The Hammam offers luxurious Arab baths and massage treatments.
It has a Morrocan restaurant with belly dancing shows and rooftop terrace cocktail bar.
Horse Riding and Shows
The Hipica equestrian centre, less than 10 mins drive away, offers riding on the beaches or through nearby forest. During the summer they have shows combining flamenco and dressage.
Of course, Jerez, is famous for the Dancing Horses of Andalucia show – an unforgetable equestrian ballet. Best to book tickets in advance.
