Squeezed between the sierras and the sea, is the classic white-washed village of Vejer, perched high above the steep gorge of the River Barbate. Declared a national monument in 1978, this pretty village offers a perfect example of what many Andalusian towns were like during five centuries of Islamic rule.
Enjoy a guided walk through this charming town as you explore cobbled-stoned streets and meander past a jumble of secret corners, hidden patios and delightful houses. Along your route you will pass the beautiful Plaza de España, undoubtedly one of the prettiest village squares in Spain and where you can enjoy some free time.
Continuing by coach, sit back, relax and enjoy the rich countryside as you pass through the Natural Park 'La Breña', a beautiful and protected pine forest. Look out for the Cape Trafalgar, the lighthouse marking the bleak headland where Lord Horatio Nelson won the Battle of Trafalgar, but sadly lost his life.
Your next stop is at Conil, a small town with narrow cobbled streets, historical monuments, tapas bars and shops. Here, you will have free time, to relax in one of the many tapas bars, shop for souvenirs or stroll along the glorious sandy beach.
This excursion will operate by coach and on foot. There is approximately 1½ hours’ total walking during this tour including some hilly terrain in Vejer. Shops in Vejer and Conil are generally closed on Sundays.
