A classically white, hill town, Vejer de la Frontera, sits on a hill further in from the Costa de la Luz.
Declared a Historic-Artistic site in 1976 its most stunning feature is the architecture.
The oldest part of town with narrow winding streets clearly signifying its Islamic origins, spreads over the highest part of the hill.
The centre of town is the Plaza de España, surrounded by palm trees with a lovely fountain as its focal point. From here, take your time to explore and navigate your way through the maze of streets of the old quarter.
The Castillo in the heart of the old quarter is Moorish in origin and its terrace provides a splendid view.
We recommend a visit to the Jewish quarter and the Arch of Segur followed by la Iglesia del Divino Salvador and the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de la Oliva(The sanctuary of Our Lady of the Olives).
However the greatest pleasure to the visitor is the gorgeous sight provided by a slow walk through the walled enclosure, the historic quarter with its narrow, winding streets and whitewashed houses.
