Driving in Jerez: parking and other tips
Driving in Jerez during rush hour can be pretty frustration. If you’re in the city centre, it’s usually better to park your car at one of the city central car parks and avoid the traffic jams. There are 8 car parks in the city centre, so there are plenty of spaces to go around.[p]Jerez is a hilly city, a so-called “horizontal city” so it’s no wonder so many opt for driving in Jerez than walking. A rental car will be invaluable if anyone in your travel party has difficulty climbing steep hills.
