Jerez de la Frontera Santo Domingo Convent
Santo Domingo Convent
The mere fact that the Dominican Order was founded in 1264, the same year in which Jerez was conquered by the Christian King Alfonso 10, is by itself enough to indicate the strong historical links of the order with the city.
This impressive church has a Gothic main nave, built between the 15 and 16 Centuries, to which a perpendicular nave was later added in the 17 Century.
The convent also possesses a Gothic cloister of great interest and beauty. All in all a monument of great artistic merit intimately linked with the history of Jerez.
