Quintessential Andalucia - Vejer de la Frontera

Quintessential Andalucia - Vejer de la Frontera

Our final day in Spain was spent in (on?) a hillside village known as Vejer de la Frontera, just one of the many white-washed towns spread across southern Spain. The village was just over 30 minutes from Rota, making for a perfect afternoon. We arrived and proceeded to climb to the to the top, where we would then find ourselves in one of the prettiest areas of our trip.

The center known as the Plaza de Espana, where there were plenty of little restaurants and cafes, along with the most ornate fountain I’d ever seen.

We stopped to take in the beauty of the fountain, as well as take a few photos, and then headed over to one of the restaurants for some tapas and beverages until it was time for our lunch reservation.

After a bit of relaxation and good food, we ventured through this glorious village. I wasn’t fully prepared for the amount of hills we were going to do, but I guess looking back, I should have expected it since it is on a hill. Oh well, good exercise after stuffing my belly full of delicious Moroccan food for the second time that week! Since there aren’t many words to describe the remaining adventure through this time, I’ll let the pictures tell the story. Needless to say, it was a perfect way to spend our last day in Spain with great friends.
