What monuments can I see in Vejer?

The Torre del Mayorazgo: It is one of the towers of the walled enclosure that is located in its southern part. Its name comes from its location in the Casa del Mayorazgo. The tower forms a corner protruding from the line of the wall. On the ground floor is a vaulted outbuilding with arrow slits, and from it by a tortuous stone staircase you climb the walkway and from there to the sky or crenellated ceiling. It has, on two battlements, a belfry, responding to the chapel that the adjacent Mayorazgo house had.

El Castillo De Vejer: It dates from the 10th and 11th centuries, in the time of Abderramán I and his successors. It is located in the highest part, and possibly the oldest inhabited area of Vejer, based on a previous one from the Arab period. It consists of two patios: the main courtyard where the old cistern is located, which collected the rainwater, through a channel. The castle floor is shaped like a herringbone, to prevent the animals that were in the stables from slipping. From the parade ground you can see the battlements, access them and see beautiful views of the entire town. In this courtyard is the private house that was transformed by Pedro Muñoz de Arenillas in the second half of the s. XIV, which was compared to the Marquis of Martorell.

La Cobijada: It is the only vestige of the original Convent of Our Lady of the Conception founded by Juan de Amaya in 1552 for the burial of himself and his wife. Its Renaissance-style façade and crypts stand out. Next to it is the most emblematic street of the city: the Arco de las Monjas.

Plaza De España: Plaza de España is the nerve center of Vejer de la Frontera. In this representative location is where the daily life of the town is felt and it is a meeting point for residents and visitors. Here is located the Town Hall and Justice of the Peace and where there are many bars and restaurants to enjoy the gastronomy of the area.
