Visiting Vejer de la Frontera obligatory plan a cup of tea in La Tetería del Califa, a small tearoom, which is part of the Califa Vejer group of hotels, restaurants & bars.
In La Tetería del Califa you will feel the wind of Al-Andalus, enjoy from the terrace the views of the white town of Vejer and taste amazing tea served in the authentic Arabic style.
In medieval times Al-Andalus was Muslim territory and cultural domain occupying at its peak most of modern Spain and Portugal. Almost eight centuries of Islamic rule has left a profound effect on the country’s culture and language, particularly in Andalusia. Nowadays, traveling around this region, you can discover many charming places referring to those times, such as Vejer or described teahouse.
Do you know what is the etymology of the popular Spanish greeting hola? According to some sources, it comes from the Arabic word Allah, which means “Peace be upon (with) God”. This has evolved into “Peace be with you”, which can be a very polite way of saying hello.
No matter the language – say hola/hello/welcome to La Tetería del Califa and enjoy your time! 🙂
