One of the many pleasures of Vejer is its accessibility to local beaches. You can choose between the stretch of fine sand at El Palmar or a series of sandy coves where fresh water trickles on to the beach through the sandstone cliffs at Cape Trafalgar (scene of the famous battle).
Yes, Vejer has several cultural attractions and monuments:
The Cultural Center (Casa de la Cultura) – Located in the old building that housed the Marquis of Tamarón Palace, near the Church, it is one of the Cultural Centers of the town.
Castle (Castillo) – It dates from the X and XI centuries, time of Ab-al-Rahman I and his successors. It is placed on the highest point, which is the oldest inhabited area of Vejer.
Windmills – They are the most characteristic shape of Vejer
Plaza de España – It has its origins in the XVI century. During the XVI and XVII centuries, it was a place to celebrate the bullfights organized by the noblemen and horse riders of Vejer. In 1957, a fountain was built in the middle of the square, made of tiles from Seville.
Divino Salvador Parish Church – Built on an ancient mosque, it’s a basilical floor church with a rectangular apse and is composed by three naves. Its architecture has two parts clearly different corresponding to two construction stages: the gothic header (a “mudejar” from the XIV century and with a gothic expansion from the end of the XV century and the beginning of the XVI). In the lateral naves there are three chapels.
