Vejer de la Frontera

"Vejer de la Frontera is one of the jewels of the province of Cadiz. Its beautiful streets and natural surroundings, make this village one of the favorite tourist destinations in the province of Cadiz. The township has the wonderful beach of el Palmar and an exceptional range of active tourism. A unique place to relax and enjoy. ”

Perched on a beautiful hillside, the Arab heritage is reflected in its traditional architecture and urbanism with neighborhoods such as the Juderia. The walls are still well preserved and there are several towers (del Mayorazgo, San Juan and de la Corredera) and the four gates of the medieval village seamlessly integrated in the urban area: the Segur Arch, the Villa Arch, that of Sancho IV and the Puerta Cerrada. The castle (11th-16th century) is at the top of the old town, accessing it through a beautiful horseshoe arch. It combines Muslim and Christian elements.
Just 9 kilometers away from Vejer de la Fronteras town center is one of the most famous beaches in Cadiz, the beach of El Palmar. Its fine golden sands stretch along more than 4 kilometers and contrast with its clear waters and beautiful natural surroundings. The wind in the area is the perfect ally for windsurfers.
The Divino Salvador Parish Church (14th-15th Centuries) overlooks the village from above and shows the beautiful evolution of the Gothic-Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque art, the Monjas Concepcionistas Church with the nuns arch, the San Francisco Convent and on the outskirts of the town is the Visigoth Chapel of Nuestra Señora de la Oliva. Its civil buildings include the baroque palace of the Marqués de Tamaron, and the Mayorazgo house, both from the 18th century, or the wind mills of San Miguel (19th century).
