Vejer information


Vejer de la Frontera

Built on a hill-top close the sea, the town was repopulated in pre-historic times, and Phoenicians, Cartagenians, Romans Visigoths and Arabs have held the town. The town was declared a Historical Monument and National Prize of Adornment. The medieval town is of narrow steep streets and white-walled houses surrounded by a defensive wall. A vestige of Arabic customs remanis with "las cobijadas": women dressed from head to toe in black cloth.

As a witness to its past importance is the Arab Castle: other monument worthy of mention are the Gothic church of El Divino Salvador, and El Rosario, which mix Visigoth, Arab and Christian influences, the Iglesia and Hospital de San Juan de Letrán, the Iglesia de Santa Lucía, the Convento de las Monjas Recepcionistas, with its famous nuns'arch from the 15th century, and the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de la Oliva, the town's patron, inside which there exists an image of the Virgin from the 16th century.

On the coast nearby is El Palmar beach and el Cabo de (Cape) Trafalgar, where the famous battle took place.
