Jerez to Seville itinerary
90km - 1 to 1 1/2 hours
From Jerez to Seville the traveller can either take the speedy motorway (A-4) or the slower N-IV highway. The motorway which was the first in Andalucia to be built and financed by a private construction company, no longer holds the concession which has reverted to the state. The good news is there in lo longer a toll to be paid on this Mororway.
Neither route is particularly interesting. These are the flat planes of the lower River Guadalquivir. Notice the acres of sherry vineyards stretching to the horizon.
6 km from Jerez on the N-IV there is a turning to the small Jerez airport.
A detour of 10km from the N-IV can be made to visit the small walled town of Lebrija which lies very close to the River Guadalquivir.
The roads pass Los Palacios y Vllafranca. Before reaching Dos Hermanos either fork left to take the newer A-4 link Motorway which routes you directly through the countryside onto the SE-30 (Seville ring road) by a very tight right hand loop. you want the SE-30 if travelling to Portugal or other places north. For Seville on joining city stay in the right lane and leave the SE-30 after only 500m. Navigate through a housing estate in order to join the magnifisent Avenida de las Palmeras leading into the city centre.
If you don't take the A-4 link then join the N-IV. You are now only 15km from the center of Seville and you can sense that you are on the outskirts of the Capital and largest city of Andalucia. You are passing one of the industrial zones, in a town called Dos Hermanos to be precise. There is no hint that just ahead lies the most majestic city of Southern Spain. The N-IV leads straight into the heart of the city of Seville along the magnificent Avenida de las Palmeras.
