Jerez, Antequera, Arcos de la Frontera

We spent a lovely day in Jerez de la Frontera, highlighted by a visit to the Gonzalez-Byass Bodega, where they've been making sherry forever. Nearby is Arcos de la Frontera, one of the famous picturesque "white towns". And a little further east is Antequera, where there are some amazing dolmens, some 4000 years old. The stone forming the roof in this photo weighs 180 tons, and was moved by those folks at least a couple of kilometers to this site. Near Antequera is El Torcal, a Natural Park with fantastic limestone formations.
