FERIA DE LA MANZANILLA (FERIA DE SANLUCAR)
SANLUCAR DE BARRAMEDA, CADIZ

Sanlucar’s feria is made all the more enjoyable by being able to partake of its very own tipple: manzanilla, a light, dry sherry, which is only made in the town. The feria ground is along the seafront – a top spot for appreciating some chilled manzanilla with some famous Sanlucar prawns.
