Magical Vejer.

Saturday, 25th of July, was a very special evening in Vejer de la Frontera. A town, known in all of Spain for it’s beauty, became even more magical this evening. The town hall turned off the street light in the ancient part of the town, lit thousands of candles and arranged a classical concert in the main square; Plaza de España. Days before the event, everybody was talking about it. Excited! Families with houses in the old part bought their own candles to add to the magic and restaurant owners had dollar signs in their eyes. And it was, as last year, a huge succes. More than 50.000 people came and enjoyed the evening. The car queues up to Vejer were up to 8 kilometers long(!), – some say even longer!!

Since the evening many photos, taken by various people, have been shown on Facebook, instagram, etc. My favourites are by a photographer from the neighbouring town, Barbate; Juan Daza.11742666_880753791960301_1758632995133755105_nnyvelsagadeespana11705245_880753921960288_5786196949748219747_n11742634_880753881960292_1941723903558310869_n
