The Spice Route

Jerez is one of the cities with the greatest number of trees in Spain and one of the first cities in Europe to celebrate the Tree Festival, dated 1898. It currently has nine gardens declared of Cultural Interest, with over one hundred trees catalogued as singular due to their rarity, appearance or uniqueness, and one of the oldest boulevards in the world, Las Angustias.

With the “Spice Route” we invite you to discover the origins and history of the trees in the city on a tour involving sensations and events in both space and time. Travel through a labyrinth of occurrences, including the first species of tree in Jerez, following a timeline from the 18th century to the present day.

The Spice Route offers three itineraries of great botanical, historical and heritage interest that commence in Alameda Cristina, nerve centre of the city, and tour the squares, gardens and streets of the Central, Northern and Western zones of Jerez.
