Lovely old pueblo, quieter at night when the day trippers have left. Great restaurants.

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

Nerja very busy and touristy but some little gems of restaurants to be found if you venture away from the tourist areas.

Frigiliana review

Nice city, good location for dinner and to spend the day. Note that every day around 10:00 tourists are dropped off in the town, but this is what you may expect in every location that has such an attraction


Costa del Sol reviews

Nice beaches. Sandy / small stones. Not crowded
