2. Vejer de la Frontera & Bolonia Private Day Trip from Seville
After pick–up in Seville, head to the town of Vejer de la Frontera, declared a Historical Site and awarded the National Prize for the Beautification of Andalusian Towns. The town takes pride in its historic legacy, such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans.
The town of Vejer has always been walled and some of its towers are still well preserved, such as the Mayorazgo Tower, the San Juan Tower and the Corredera Tower. See its 4 medieval town gates, the 11th century castle, which combines elements of Muslim and Christian architecture. Visit the ruins of the Roman city of Baelo Claudia in the northwest of Tarifa. Prosperous at the time of Emperor Claudius, the city went into decline hastened by earthquakes, and was completely abandoned by the 6th century. Next to Bolonia Beach, considered one of the 5 most beautiful beaches in Spain, the archaeological site preserves the most representative elements of a typical Roman city.
The main attraction of Bolonia Beach is its dune. At over 30 meters high and 200 meters wide, it is set in an inlet within the Estrecho Nature Park, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea. From the Bolonia-Faro Camarinal Trail, the views of the broad beach of golden sand, popular with surfers, is truly spectacular. See the lighthouse with its cauldron-like holes in the rocks.
