festivals

so we arrived in vejer to the celebration of ‘corpus christi’ in town, and  ended our trip with  ‘noches de velas’  – an amazing fete of hanging hundreds of candles around the streets of the old town and especially in the main square, plaza espana – accompanied by a group of singers sat in the middle of the candles.   what a splendid sight, though marred by the hundreds of visitors visiting the town to catch the atmosphere – all the street lights were turned off, so the town looked romantically medieval.   how lovely it would have been to have had the town candlelit minus all the visitors.   vejer definitely knows how to do a festival!

  1. Thank you Christina for your wonderful posts in Vejer. I have been living in Madrid for ten years now with my Spanish husband, but still haven’t visited Vejer – it looks truly wonderful. Hope it stays authentic and true to itself. Sam.
