Vejer de la Frontera is on the Costa de la Luz, the Coast of Light, west of the straits of Gibraltar where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean.
This coast is the windiest place in Europe which is why Tarifa, about half an hour’s drive from Vejer, is a mecca for surfers.
It’s also an obvious place to harness the power of the wind and one of the features of its sky line is windmills old . .
. . . and new:
Wind generation has been controversial here, what interested us was there are no pylons leading from the windmills which presumably means power is transmitted underground.
