The Iglesia Parroquial Divino Salvador (Parish Church ) is the most important temple in Vejer de la Frontera.

Built on ancient Moorish mosque it consists of two clearly differentiated parts corresponding to the two stages of its construction: the Gothic-Mudejar apse of the 14th century and an extension built in the late Gothic style during the late 15th and early 16th centuries.

We should highlight the altarpiece of the high altar, created by the master Francisco de Villegas in the 17th century, and made of cedar and common laburnum wood.
