Mamelón Sq. - Jerez. This square forms a link between the city centre and its main thoroughfare: the Alcalde Alvaro Domecq Avenue. Here we have a fresh landscape of green gardens and a large central decorative lake with water features. At one end stands the monument erected in memory of Saint John the Baptist de la Salle. The other end of the gardens dominated by a sculpture, work of Eduardo Soriano, representing a “Great Calisera Break” drawn by five horses, weighing six tons and almost life size.

En esta plaza, que une el centro de la ciudad con la principal arteria, que es la avenida Alcalde Álvaro Domecq, ofrece un paisaje fresco, de gran verdor por sus jardines y complementado por el gran lago central. En su perímetro se pueden observar monumentos como el erigido en memoria de San Juan Bautista de la Salle. Asimismo destaca la escultura obra de Eduardo Soriano que representa un “Gran Break a la calesera” tirado por cinco caballos en media potencia, con un peso de 6 toneladas y un tamaño casi real.
Jerez de la Frontera is a municipality in the province of Cádiz in the autonomous community of Andalusia in southwestern Spain. As of 2005, the city had 196,275 inhabitants; it is the largest city in the province of Cádiz and the fifth largest in Andalusia. It has become the transportation and communications hub of the province, surpassing even Cádiz, the provincial capital, in economic activity. Jerez de la Frontera is also, in terms of land area, the largest municipality in the province, and its sprawling outlying areas are a fertile zone for agriculture. There are also many cattle ranches and horse-breeding operations. The city's name: Even though there are two other cities in southern Spain named Jerez (Jerez de los Caballeros in Badajoz province and Jerez del Marquesado in Granada province), when one says "Jerez", it is more than likely that it is this city, Jerez de la Frontera, that is meant. In former times, during the Muslim occupation of Iberia, it was called Xerez or Xeres. ... Read more about Jerez de la Frontera on Wikipedia
