Frigiliana

Frigiliana is situated in the eastern part of the Axarquía region, in the foothills of the Almijara mountain range, just on the border of the Sierras de Tejeda y Almijara Nature Park.

The typical ‘pueblo blanco’ (white village) of Frigiliana, boasts spectacular panoramic views to the Higueron River, which lies in the Chillar Valley. To the north-west the municipality borders on Cómpeta, to the west, Torrox and to the south, Nerja.

The village is a labyrinth of steep and narrow cobbled streets, lined by whitewashed houses, their wrought-iron balconies filled with planters of brilliant red geraniums. Frigiliana is best explored by foot.

History
The area has been inhabited since pre-history times. During the Roman occupation a fortress was built, which no longer exists. In the old quarter of the village there are 12 mosaics, which depict the history of Frigiliana.

Around town
Small plazas provide shady seating while the village bars are popular with visitors who come here to taste the locally produced wine.

There are several excellent shops selling locally made pottery and ceramics, linen and basketware.

Places to visit
Malaga, Torrox, Nerja and Torre del Mar are all within a day visit distance by car. The beautiful Almijara Natural Park is perfect for outdoor lovers, who can enjoy rambling, hiking, mountain biking and bird watching, amongst others.

Cuisine
There are many excellent restaurants offering good value and excellent cuisine in Frigiliana, in the main plaza (square) there are some lovely places to eat and if you explore a little further you will find little restaurants tucked away in the villages cobbled streets. Head up to the Mirador (viewing point) at the top of the village, here you can enjoy a bite to eat and wonderful views.

Climate
Due to its geographical position Frigiliana has a very special microclimate, with an average annual temperature of 18 ºC. This means that the winters are mild and the summers warm. The rainfall is low, annually around 600 litres a square metre. All of this makes the spot a unique natural paradise.

Costa del Sol reviews

Didn't spend a lot of time at the coast - but did find a beach where we could let our dog run free, and the views over the coast were beautiful.

Frigiliana review

Frigiliana is a very beautifull old village with the traditional white Andalusian houses. Very good position with the surrounding moutains and only a short drive to the coast.


Costa del Sol reviews

There are some very fine beaches in the coast line from Nerja to Almunecar.

Frigiliana review

The village is small and quaint - exactly which I was looking for. For the most part people were very friendly. Spanish is not spoken widely but people were polite and helpful. It was so nice being away from all the development of the coastal communities. There is ready access to the towns and cities along the coast and Granada is extremely accessible.


Costa del Sol reviews

The area is very beautiful but extremely populated and developed. That said it was possible to find some of the beaches and coves which were less touristed but you need a car.
