An exceptional schedule of shows.
If you are visiting Jerez and are a fan of the performing arts, do not miss the Villamarta Theatre, which has stood in the heart of the city since 1928. It was commissioned by King Alfonso XIII to the Marquis of Villamarta, who was the Mayor at that time and left the work in the hands of Basque architect Teodoro Anasagasti. The original building, a modernist aesthetic which makes references to Gaudi and even Jerez wine with its wine bottle-shaped windows on its facade, was given the honour of hosting the city's first theatre. For sixty years, its 2,000 seats were regularly full of visitors keen to watch film screenings, concerts and plays. Declared a Site of Cultural Interest, the Villamarta Theatre remains a strong cultural reference in Jerez.
