Travel guide: Frigiliana

March 24, 2015

Frigiliana is a beautiful little white town in Andalusia. It’s a quiet town and is easily accessible from Nerja.

Getting a bus from Nerja is easy and costs 1€ each way. Unlike other bus tickets from Nerja you pay on the bus. It’s a short ride, about 15 minutes up into the hills. The bus drops you right in the centre of Frigiliana and leaves from the same place. It is also possible to drive and there appears to be ample parking.

Frigiliana is a small town perched high in the mountains. It is a very small town and there’s not a lot there but boasts fantastic panoramic views. The town consists of two parts, an old town and a newer part. From the main parking area head to the part situated further up the hill, this is the old town and it’s worth spending your time here.

We ventured up on the 9:40 bus and the town hadn’t quite woken up yet by the time we had arrived. It made it perfect for wandering around the little streets of the old town as it was so quiet. This is also a benefit of going to holiday resorts like this off season.

Every little street was so different and had its own little surprises.

We only spent the morning here and got the 11:30 bus back down to Nerja for lunch in our apartment. There appeared to be plenty of eating places and Frigiliana is famous for a lot of food produce such as wine, olives, molasses and honey. I bought some honey while I was there recreated this delicious tapas dish of fried aubergine and honey when I got home.
