A few weeks ago, the hubs and I decided to have a little date weekend exploration around some still undiscovered "to us" parts of Andalusia.
Id heard tales of a pretty white town towards Seville.
In fact, its said that its the prettiest of the white towns. It also happens to be on the way to one of my wish list hotels. Meant to be...
So we packed our weekend luggage and jumped in the car to see for ourselves
It really is breathtaking to see the hilltop pueblos blancos from afar for the first time. Against the brilliant, blue, cloudless Andalusian sky its really quite breathtaking.
And once inside Vejar, its no less disappointing. Charming, rustic and unique... I could literally explore these towns for hours.
After spending so much time in southern Spain at this point, we now try and avoid the mid day heat and always aim to arrive in either the morning or late evening as the town's close for siesta due to the sweltering heat. We once arrived at one of these little towns and had to get straight back into the car within minutes it was that hot.
There are endless pretty streets to explore and get lost in.
We headed to the Plaza de Espana which features a Seville tile fountain and is known as the Plaza de los Pescaítos. This is wear you'll find many of the locals hanging out at the cafe's and children playing by the fountain
Although this was a flying visit to Vejar, it has became an instant favourite. We will definitely be returning soon. If you are visiting Andalusia, id definitely recommend adding it to your list.
