Pueblos Blancos translates to White Villages. There are so many of these all dotted throughout Spain, and they are truly beautiful.
We chose to explore Vejer because it was on the way to the beach we were heading to and we had read good things about it so wanted to check it out for ourselves.
There is a huge car park at the bottom of the village with free parking, which makes accessibility so much easier.
We started to walk up the old cobbled streets and you can’t help but keep stopping along the way to take pictures. There are quite a few boutique style shops scattered around, which naturally I stopped to look in.
There is something so special about white buildings anyway, but a whole village full out them is stunning, particularly with the contrast of the blue sky. We truly fell in love with Vejer.
It was very quiet, however it is not the quietest village we came across, but this was the perfect combination because it still had a slight buzz to it but at no point did you feel the streets were overcrowded.
We only explored the old part of it, which when you stroll slowly like we did, can easily take up to an hour or two. We thought we had seen it all by the time we reached the white overlook of the extended village (the last picture) but there is apparently a lot more to this village, with a newer part featuring a beautiful water fountain… oh well… I guess we will just have to go back!
