    Monument to the fallen - Cruz a los caídos

    by spanishguy Written Jul 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a small monument devoted to whom who died for Spain in the different wars our country has been in. It's a small cross located beside the castle wall and close to the church. It was erected in 2005 commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, where more than 1000 Spanish people died in front of these beaches.

    Hay un pequeño monumento dedicado a los caídos por España en las diferentes guerras en las que ha participado nuestro país. Es una cruz junto a las murallas del castillo, cerca de la iglesia. Se erigió en 2005 conmemorando el 200 aniversario de la Batalla de Trafalgar, donde más de 1000 españoles murieron enfrente de estas costas.

    I had visited a few times, in the last two occasions I enjoyed VT meetings with our famous SirRichard who is from Cadiz and visits the area very often. I had enjoyed his hospitality and is a pleasure to keep on meeting you ;-) ....

    Conil has incredible beaches and I had used both times as home base on my excursions around; Zahara de los Atunes, Barbate, Medina Sidonia, Arcos de la Frontera, Vejer de la Frontera, Chiclana etc

    With a lighthouse at the end it is more famous for the battle of Trafalgar and Mr Nelson

    It is possible to go by car to the nearby lighthouse and a great spot for water sports as well

    Ca?os de Meca

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A tourist coast resort in between Barbate and Trafalgar, great for surffers and other water sports (well as most of the area) and incredible beaches.

    Great for excursions on bike or hiking due to the proximity to the natural parks.

    In between Conil and Barbate through the coast Road

    I love to stop at VEJER DE LA FRONTERA, where i have enjoyed good days years ago. It is sited on the top of a mountain, and apart of an old castle and incredible views it has the spirit of a white village.

    From here you can visit all the coast from Zahara de los atunes, crossing Barbate till Conil Beaches, visiting some natural parks and also Ca?os de Meca and Trafalgar.

    All this area is called LA JANDA
