Overview

Introduction

Vejer de la Frontera, atop a hill overlooking the Barbate River is one of the prettiest towns in the countryside surrounding Cadiz.  The Moorish influence is everywhere, with its whitewashed houses and narrow winding, labyrinthine streets. Vejer is just the right size with plenty to see and places to visit without being too large and overcrowded.

Vejer is a walled town and some of its towers are still well preserved as are the four medieval town gates.  The castle, dating from between the 11th and 16th centuries, rising above the old town is particularly impressive and combines elements of both Muslim and Christian architecture. The town also boasts some fine examples of religious architecture and some very impressive 18th and 19th century civil buildings.

At night the town comes alive and the squares abound with restaurants and cafés.  A town to people watch and be watched.

Vejer is only 9km from one of the most famous beaches on the Cadiz coast, the 4km long El Palmar Beach, particularly good for windsurfing.

Vejer de la Frontera - I loved visiting La Casa del Califa, which was founded in 2001 but with origins that date back to the 10th century. Found in the heart of Vejer, in the Plaza de España, La Casa del Califa is a labyrinth of corridors, stairways, rooms, doors, courtyards and a cave spread over three different street levels. A true gem to explore which makes you feel that you have stepped back in time into historic Vejer.
