"This hill town is undoubtedly the most attractive, as well as picturesque, of any on this stretch. It has all the features: white walls, mottled red roofs, narrow cobbled streets, Moorish Castle, panoramic views out over fertile land & bull breeding pastures, and an ability to celebrate feast days, notable even for Andalucía." Crowood Guide, Andalucia
"...be sure to take time to visit Vejer, a classically white, Moorish-looking hill town set in a cleft between great protective hills that rear high above the road from Tarifa to Cádiz… the drama of Vejer is in its isolation and its position, which gradually unfold before you… the place has a remoteness and Moorish feel as explicit as anywhere in Spain. There's a castle and a church of curiously mixed styles (mainly Gothic and Mudéjar) but the main fascination lies in exploring the brilliant white and labyrinthine alleyways, wandering past iron-grilled windows, balconies and patios, and slipping into a succession of bars." Rough Guides, Andalucia
"...whitest of the white villages of Andalucía, strangely moulded around its hilltop site like a Greek island town. The village is dominated by its Moorish castle & Gothic church built over the site of a mosque. The towns spanking clean, narrow whitewashed streets are evocative of its Arab origins." Cadogan Guide, Southern Spain
"occupied by moors up to 1250, it has a strong Moorish character and a maze of narrow white streets. You enter the upper part of the village through the original Moorish gates...near this hidden by the surrounding houses is a Moorish castle, with a horseshoe gate and recently uncovered Moorish plasterwork." Michael Jacobs, A Guide to Andalucia
