Frigiliana, a white village in Andalusia


The small agricultural town of Frigiliana lies about 7 kilometres inland of Nerja. Frigiliana is said to be one of the most pretty Andalusian pueblos and is ranked as one of the most beautiful towns of Spain. It is very easy combine a visit to Frigiliana with your trip to Nerja. Perched high in the Sierra Tejeda, this pretty white village has commanding views of the surrounding countryside and littoral. Once poor, it is now flourishing as there is a growing population of foreign residents that have homes in the surrounding hills. The old town still retains much of its original charm.

Frigiliana is definitely a must-see when visiting the Costa Tropical of Granada. Immaculate whitewashed lanes lead through the village to the church and small square. From there, you can go up the hill through the maze of twisting streets to near the top of the village where a vantage point offers spectacular views of the town and coast, especially at sunset. Most people enjoy the souvenir and craft shops that sell beautiful handmade items. There are also shops where you can try and purchase the tasty sweet local wine.
