Known also as the white village, Frigiliana sits high upon a mountain ridge, right above the beautiful resort town of Nerja. Embroiled in a labyrinth of steep cobbled footpaths, narrow winding streets and traditional whitewashed houses, it’s no wonder that it was voted the 'prettiest village in Andalucia' by the Spanish tourism authority.
Two sections make up Frigiliana; The newer, lower section and the older Morisco-Mudéjar neighbourhood which makes up the upper section. Steeped in history and authenticity the upper section is certainly the main attraction. Here you’ll be taken back in time to Moorish lands and a selection of decorative floor mosaics tell a tale which goes as far back as the 8thcentury!
With a great selection of bars and authentic restaurants serving tasty Spanish dishes and offering stunning views whilst you dine, Frigiliana really is a paradise for those looking for a more traditional atmosphere rather than a resort. However, if you fancy the best of both worlds; a 15 minute drive takes you down to Nerja, where you can visit the blue-flag Burriana Beach and various other attractions here.
