Jerez de la Frontera Bertemati Palace
Bertemati Palace in Plaza del Arroyo
Location: Plaza del Arroyo, Jerez de la Frontera.
Standing near the exit of the city on the way out to the coastal areas, this is the oldest part of Jerez and it was here that bull fights used to take place and where the Jerezano horsemen organised exhibitions to demonstrate their equestrian skills.
Upon one side of the square we find one of the most characteristic examples of civilian architecture commissioned by the nobility of the 18 Century: the Bertemati Palace, since classified as a Monument of Cultural Interest.
It currently houses the Bishopric of the Dioceses of Jerez.
