Vejer de la Frontera is a hilltop town and municipality in Andalusia, in the province of Cadiz, Spain. It had been under Moorish rule from 711 to 1248 - and, at the end of this rule, was bitterly fought over - which earned it the addendum "de la frontera" (at the frontier).

Beautiful set of images of a very picturesque village.
All of them very appealing and beautifully composed and photographed with my favourites being ##2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13.
Thanks for sharing.

Excellent work. Personally, I particularly enjoy your evening shots so, apart from #2 & #10, I'd say my other favorites are #13 - #18. But really all are good.

Cheers

Great set about great place!
