Jerez de la Frontera – Arenal Square
The Arenal Square is the most representative of the city, and its origins go back to the reign of Alfonso 10th The Wise when he converted it into the main square where games and public festivities were held. One of the roads which lead into the square is called Corredera-or race track- because it was the starting point of the numerous horse races that were held here at that time.
The square is rectangular and is pedestrianised. In the centre can be found the equestrian statue of Miguel Primo de Rivera. It is an original work by Benillure. In short, la Plaza del Arenal is the heart of the city and site of many events.
