The whiteness of the streets of Vejer de la Frontera // La blancura de las calles de Vejer de la Frontera

in Pinmapple10 months ago (edited)

Strolling through the streets of this old town with centuries of history takes you back in time. Narrow corridors where vehicles do not pass and whitewashed houses protecting you from the heat of the strong southern Spanish sun. The elevated location of the town means that the wind blows through the streets and dries the clothes hanging out to dry in a short time.

Pasear por las calles de este viejo pueblo con siglos de historia te transporta a otras épocas. Estrechos pasillos donde no pasan los vehículos y casas encaladas protegiendo del calor del fuerte sol del sur de España. La elevada ubicación de la localidad hace que corra el viento por sus calles secando la ropa tendida en poco tiempo.

This Muslim walled town was reconquered by Christian troops in 1292. But the old town has hardly changed in all these centuries, maintaining the urban architecture of the time.

The Arab citizens who did not want to convert to Christianity were banished to North Africa and founded the sister town of Chauen. Today, the Jewish quarter stands out for its beauty.

The cobbled streets with slight slopes and the houses adorned with the typical latticed windows with some flower pots make you get lost in the streets, discovering new squares that you never knew existed.

It is a pleasure to get lost in this labyrinth of wrought iron and lime with the scent of orange blossom.

Es un placer dejarse perder en este laberinto de forja y cal con aroma a azahar.
