Free Tour Vejer and its History

Duration: 2h
Languages: English, Spanish, French
Registered on October 06, 2021

I have been working as a guide for more than 10 years and I have organized routes for all kinds of groups through Andalusia, especially Cádiz and Seville, and Morocco to the Sahara. Although I am not a native of Vejer, I know its streets and hideouts; their myths and legends. I was in Morocco with my partner Responsible for the Fundación Forja XXI in Morocco, who worked for tourism development. There we discovered the possibilities offered by activities related to tourism and history. And that's where my love for Arab, Jewish and Christian cultures began.

Tour description

Vejer , since the Phoenicians passed through Cádiz, accumulates centuries of history. Today we see Roman Access Walls and Doors to the Historic Center , elements of the Aljama Mosque on the original temple with its Sahan (patio) integrated into the current Church of El Salvador. The footprint of the Umayyads like Abderramán II in the Castle or the Alfices (arches) of the Almohads. The trace of Islam, present for almost 5 centuries and its harmony with the Jews is unique in Vejer. The Sephardim left their mark on the Jewish Quarter, where my family lived.
We will enter the Walled Enclosure through the Puerta de la Segur , to go to the Main Church and the Castle. Then we will go down through the Jewish quarter to the Mirador de la Cobijadas , to contemplate the Atlantic Ocean and Africa. From there to the narrow streets of the Arab Quarter.

Its protagonists
from Layla Al-Zhura, founder of Chef-Chaouen, wife of the last Mr. Sidi Ali Ben Al-Rashi or Juan Relinque inciter of Hazas de Luck, recognized as the First Ombudsman in Spain, will make you feel special.
