Travel – Vejer

On one of our road trips in Andalusia, Spain, we opted to go to Vejer.

Vejer is a Moorish, walled city nestled on top of the hill with beautiful white buildings. It was once an ancient fortress used by Phoenicians, then later settled by the moors.

We ate at El Jardin del Califa. The food was exquisite and the atmosphere was gorgeous. We started off with olives and wine, and then had Lamb Stew and Couscous with Apricots. They also had hotel rooms on site that looked like a beautiful place to stay.

After eating our wonderful meal , we walked around the city in under an hour. The views were gorgeous and the town was eerily still. We checked out the Mayorozgo Tower, and walked by the Church of Concepcion.

Afterwards we took our full bellies to the beaches at El Palmar, had a beer and listened to Leon Bridges. Life was good.
