Tour description

We will take a tour of the most significant enclaves of the city that marked historical milestones; as was the culmination of the first circumnavigation.

The visit will take place through the most central and emblematic streets and squares of the city, coinciding with many of its civil and religious monuments . On Saturdays, I include a tour of the food market where you can see why Sanlúcar has been designated Gastronomic Capital of Spain 2022. (Remember to bring bibs for this part of the tour) At the end, you will surely be interested in trying some of these delicacies with a good tapa in one of the many bars and taverns in the city.

The beginning of the tour will begin in the "Barrio Bajo", starting in the Plaza del Cabildo , continuing through Plaza de San Roque , Trascuesta , Mercado de Abastos and Covachas to go up to the "Barrio Alto" having left behind central streets of i churches and convents . At the end of the climb up the most historic slope of the town, we will be greeted by the imposing Palace of Orleans (Current Town Hall), from there to the Ducal Palace of Medina Sidonia and the Parroquia de la O; To end the tour of the upper part of the city, we will arrive at one of the oldest preserved buildings still in use, the Castle of Santiago (XV century), passing through emblematic streets with its Manzanillas wineries . We will return to the "Barrio Bajo" of our town, arriving at the Church of Santo Domingo , the largest in size in the town and built entirely of stone , at this point our visit to the city will end; Of course, it will be the perfect time to cool off with a glass of manzanilla wine or a cold beer.

The tour will last approximately 1:30-2:00 . Tickets or visits to the interior of private monuments such as the Parroquia Mayor de Nuestra Sra. de la O, Ducal Palace of Medina Sidonia, Castillo de Santiago or Church of Santo Domingo are not included .
These monuments can be visited by paying a ticket at the time you wish to visit them.

I collaborate regularly with Guru Miguel, and on some occasions, he can make the visits that are reserved in my profile.

Gabriel, sabe muchísimo de su ciudad y sabe transmitirlo, ha sido un tour muy agradable y hemos visitado sitios maravillosos que por nuestra cuenta no hubiésemos disfrutado con la misma intensidad. He realizado muchos Freetours por toda Europa y Gabriel está entre los mejores.

Ha sido un tour fantástico, lleno de información y datos históricos. Un auténtico profesional, te responde a cualquier pregunta sea la que sea y eso es porque tiene los conocimientos, no como otros guías que se estudian un guion y si les preguntas les dejas fuera de juego.
