FrigilianaSpain

Enjoy this town located between the Sierras de Almijara, Tejeda y Alhama Nature Park and the Mediterranean and see that while it’s small in size, it’s huge in charm.

Turn off your mobile and really disconnect on your idyllic holidays in Frigiliana, and discover everything this town has to offer, as it’s one of the most beautiful spots in Spain. You’ll understand why after you see its cobbled streets and perfectly preserved ramparts, the endless hills and the whitewashed façades of the houses decorated with jars of bright colourful flowers. Lose yourself along the maze-like narrow streets in the old quarter, which was declared a historical-artistic site in 2014. Thanks to our cheap trips to Frigiliana, you can enjoy a leisurely atmosphere, while at the same time experiencing the cosmopolitan town with inhabitants from many different countries.

From Calle Real, you can follow a number of narrow streets that will lead you to Barribarto, the Moorish quarter. Be sure to check out the adarves, beautiful ramparts to the houses that don’t have a direct entrance from the street. One example is Zacatín, the most emblematic of the streets.

Another of the most interesting places is Callejón del Peñón, or the alley of the rock. Follow the upward slope to reach the top of the hill and take in some wonderful views of the whole town, and even the coast of Nerja. Another one to visit is Callejón del Inquisidor, alley of the inquisitor, a very narrow street leading to an area with colourful doors and balconies.

With our package deals to Frigiliana you’ll be able to go to El Ingenio, a 16th-century manor that is the only treacle factory still in operation in Europe, and you’ll be able to enjoy aubergines fried with light treacle, kid fried with almond sauce, wine and a dish of fried breadcrumbs or migas. Stroll down the town’s streets and you’ll find plenty of small craft shops where you can buy products made from straw, clay, glass or wool. If you visit in August, you can even enjoy the Festival of Three Cultures, a showcase of culture, cuisine, music and theatre.

Take out one of our trips to Frigiliana and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and soak up the locals’ zest for life.
