La Plaza de España or 'Plaza de los Pescaitos'. It's the nicest and best known square of Vejer, surrounded by date palms and large bougainvillea. It takes its nickname from the goldfish that swam in the large fountain. Also interesting is the townhall building, overlooking the square, with its facade, dating from the XVI century.

House of Mayorazgo. It is located near the Sancho El Bravo door, and is a private house where five families live together. You can go and visit the great courtyard, it’s free and you only be asked to leave a small donation.
