Perched high above the steep gorge of the River Barbate and the surrounding countryside, the old town of VEJER DE LA FRONTERA has an abundance of historical monuments. The Castle, turreted medieval walls, minaret of the old mosque, churches and convents, are a blend of Moorish, Visigoth and Mudejar styles.
Entering the upper part of the village through the original Moorish gates, you will see that Vejer has a strong Moorish character ( occupied by Moors up to 1250 ) and a maze of narrow, cobbled streets.
Hans and I , along with Carmen and Stace stopped here on our way to the Coast and Tarifa. Vejer is in Cadiz Province and is southwest of Jerez and northwest of Tarifa.
Address: southwest of Jerez & northwest of Tarifa
