Jerez de los Caballeros, Badajoz


Deep into the roots of the Iberian Peninsula

Jerez de los Caballeros, heart of the territory of the Templar knights, lies in the province of Badajoz in the Autonomous region of Extemadura.

The view of the town from the outside is as impressive as it is spectacular from the inside. And each corner appears to be steeped in history having been known about by the Phoenicians. Important roman remains point to the fact that the city was a focal point during the romanisation of the peninsula and, after the Arab invasion in 711, Jerez de los Caballeros became known as Xerixa or Xeris. It was after the reconquest by the Christians under Alfonso IX that the end  was given into the care of the Knights of the Temple, whose own violent end was written in the runes. They left the town with some fabulously photogenic features.

Now, Jerez de los Caballeros is a premium location for tourism and those seeking the roots of our story.
