night of the candles

this weekend in vejer de la fronterra is the  ‘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.   its always a  splendid sight, though marred by the hundreds of visitors visiting the town to catch the atmosphere – all the street lights will be turned off, so the town will look romantically medieval.   its definitely a night to remember-    vejer definitely knows how to do a festival!
