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.

Frigiliana review

The villa we stayed in is not exactly in Frigiliana but about 4 klms up the mountain from it. The road up there is not for the faint hearted . Frigiliana is a pretty white village perched on a mountain side about 2 klms from Nerja on the east coast from Malaga. There are plenty of bars and places to eat. Pretty shops and a wonderful pottery shop in the old Molassas factory which is in the middle of the old and new town. There is a fabulous gorge behind the village which is great for walking along. They also have a substantial market on Thursday mornings. Its a very pretty village and well worth staying in or even spending the day there.


Costa del Sol reviews

Frigiliana is not on the " Costa del Sol" where you will find Torremolinas , Fuengerola and Marbella, it is to the East of Malaga. The coast that way is all rocky coves and pretty beaches. The largest resort is Nerja which is a traditional Spanish town.

Frigiliana review



Costa del Sol reviews

We felt the Costa del Sol was overdeveloped, too busy, hard to drive and park in, and lacking in charm except for a few areas. The beaches by Nerja were lovely and the town has managed to avoid the excess of some of the others.
