An oasis of peace in the middle of the historic old town, right next to the lively Plaza España, the main square of Medina Sidonia, with its numerous bars, restaurants and traditional cake shops with the famous sweets from the times of the Phoenicians, the “Alfajores de Medina”.  This is the perfect place to discover on foot the excellent gastronomy and the famous sherry of the area.

The Posada Alegria is a traditional Andalusian patio house from 1901, which has been renovated with high quality materials to a modern standard, without without losing the original character and charm. All the historical sites, such as the Roman/Arabic castle, the Arco de la Pastora, Plaza Iglesia Mayor or the impressive Roman archaeological museum are all within a 5-10 minute walk.

There is a supermarket nearby and FREE public parking is situated just 100 meters from the house.

If you want to enjoy a relaxing holiday in an authentic Spanish village in what is still a relatively undiscovered corner of Spain without the trappings of modern tourism then you are looking in the right place.

Medina Sidonia is perfectly positioned to access to a range of places of interest across the province of Cadiz, such as: Cádiz, Jerez, Arcos the beaches of the Costa de la Luz, The Alcornocales Natural Park, Baelo Claudia, The historic sites of Medina Sidonia and many more.
