Visit the classic white washed village of Vejer de la Frontera, perched high above the steep gorge of the river Barbate and squeezed between the sierra and the sea. Declared a national monument in 1978, this charming village offers a perfect example of what many Andalusian towns were like during five centuries of Islamic rule.
Take a walk through this stunning town and explore the cobblestone streets, secret corners, hidden patios and delightful houses. Along your journey pass the beautiful Plaza de Espana, undoubtedly one of the sweetest village squares in Spain. You'll have free time to explore the local souvenir shops or relax and grab some of the local specialties in one of the many bars and cafes found at the square.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the rich countryside passing through the Natural Park of La Brena, a beautiful and protected pine tree forest. On a clear day, you can enjoy the view over the Straits of Gibraltar and the coast of Morocco as well as over the famous Cape Trafalgar. Your guide will point out the lighthouse marking the bleak headland where Lord Horatio Nelson won the Battle of Trafalgar, but lost his life. Enjoy some free time at Conil de la Frontera, a beautiful seaside white village, before your drive back
