Vejer de la Frontera, a fairytale village
Vejer de la Frontera is one of the so-called white villages of the province of Cadiz. There you will find white and cobbled streets, patios with flowers, a castle, walls, churches, ancient towers and an old Jewish quarter.
The most charming white village
Declared a Historic Site and awarded the National Beautification Prize. Some say it is the most beautiful village in Andalusia! If it is not, it is certainly very close to being so. Its steep streets, steep slopes of stones, manor houses that open up into fresh patios and overflowing with pots of plants and flowers, make Vejer a delicious town, with purity, well looked after, very clean and white, with a philosophy of life that can only be experienced in these small towns of Mediterranean life, far from the stress of the big cities.
A marvellous enclave
This panoramic view is impressive! There are few places in the world where you can see two continents, Africa looking out over the Spanish coast! Without doubt this is an image that can be seen from different points of the Costa de la Luz but it will never cease to surprise us, this can be seen from the top of Vejer.
Castle – town walls – churches – old Jewish quarter…
White and cobbled streets, courtyards with flowers, a castle, town walls, churches, ancient towers, an old Jewish quarter, a lot of places where you can eat and taste the products of the land and the sea. In these photographs, we show you some corners of Vejer such as the Plaza de España, the Jewish Quarter, the Mirador de los Abuelicos, the Arco de las Monjas, the Arco de Segur, the Villa y Puerta Cerrada, the Mirador de la Plazuela, the Plaza del Padre Ángel, the Parroquia del Divino Salvador, the beautiful Patios Vejeriegos… there are many corners that dazzle.
This Andalusian village in the province of Cadiz is worth a visit of at least one morning or afternoon. It is a small town with a lot of elf, and from the first contact you can notice a special atmosphere, kept intact in time, in which every street in the old town tells a story. Without a doubt it is one of the most beautiful villages in Andalusia and the inhabitants are very friendly, with the salt shaker that the people of the south have. There are shops selling local crafts, local products, typical bars and restaurants, good wines… a day’s visit passes quickly.
The Plaza de España
This is a typical, colourful, tiled village square with benches, palm trees and plants. All around there are bars, restaurants and terraces with views. From Calle Correderas we connect very well with Plaza de España. Calle Correderas is a long and stately avenue, very busy, with shops, bars, large terraces, a viewpoint… It runs along the entire wall of the outskirts and finally leads us to the gardens and parking of El Vejer. The Castle is 5 minutes walk from Plaza de España, and the Jewish quarter is 2 minutes away. If you get lost in the narrow streets of Vejer (which I recommend), the Plaza de España is a strategic point to return and relocate.
Declared a historic/artistic area
The Castle (11th-16th century) is located in the highest part of the old town of Vejer, and can be reached by a beautiful horseshoe arch. It combines in its architecture Muslim and Christian elements. The Church of Divino Salvador (13th-18th century) shows the evolution of Gothic-Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque art. The medieval Jewish quarter, dating from the 13th to 15th centuries, is the most typical quarter of Vejer, where you will find labyrinthine streets with whitewashed facades and flowery balconies, as well as some sections of the walled enclosure, which still has its four original gates to the old city. The Arco de Puerta Cerrada, also called Puerta de la Berbería, is one of the four gates that still remain from the walled area of Vejer. Located to the south of the city, this arch dates from the 10th to 12th centuries.
A picturesque white village
The old town of Vejer has been declared a Historic-Artistic Site, and if there is one thing that characterises the architecture of the town, it is the winding streets and its flowery patios, characteristic and hallmark of the white villages of Andalusia. The town is dazzling by day and enchanting by night, this labyrinth of narrow streets that go up, down, fork, and narrow are a very picturesque, watercolour-like layout… the energy of this place is unique, who could live in Vejer!
