The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol/Malaga area has long been a popular destination for over 30 years, with over 300 days of sunshine every year. With excellent road and rail systems travelling is very easy. You can enjoy the history and culture of cities such as Malaga or the beautiful golden beaches along the coast. There is also walking in the mountains of Malaga or touring on the back roads of Andalucia.
Voted the 'prettiest village in Andalucía' by the Spanish tourism authority, Frigiliana which sits on a mountain ridge is just 7 kilometres from Nerja town centre and offers stunning views across the ‘campo’ all the way down to the Mediterranean.
Steeped in history, above Frigiliana, the hill El Fuerte was the backdrop of the final bloody defeat of the Moors of La Axarquía in their 1569 rebellion against the Spanish. High above the village are the ruins of the fort from which some of the Moors reputedly threw themselves rather than be killed or captured. It is said that bones and rusted weapons dating from this encounter still lie among the scrub on El Fuerte.
Frigiliana itself is the epitome of a Spanish whitewashed village. Beautiful little village houses set in a maze of cobbled streets, their balconies abundant with flowerpots and overflowing with colour. Strolling through the village, there are plenty of little corners to sit in the shade, rest and reflect on the day. Frigiliana also has a great choice of restaurants and bars to sample in beautiful surroundings. The many trails and pathways from the village will satisfy the most avid walker and the scenery and beauty of the National Park will enthrall and entertain the naturalist.
If spending all of your time on the beach is not necessarily for you, then Frigiliana and the surrounding countryside is a wonderful place to relax and chill out. With the proximity of Nerja town only a ten minute drive or short bus ride away, you will still be able to combine the livelier side of Nerja with the more leisurely environment of the Andalucian countryside.
