The white washed village of Frigiliana

To the east of Malaga near the coastal resort of Nerja on the Costa del Sol is one of the prettiest villages in Andalucia. The white washed village of Frigiliana was so voted in 1997. Situated near the Almijara Moutain 5kms inland from Nerja and 1,000 feet above sea level Frigiliana has a small population of just 2,000 people many of which are from the UK.

Although Frigiliana is a small village there is no shortage of shops selling the local produce, and small grocery stores, but the locals have to travel out of town in order to find a large supermarket for their weekly shopping. Many of the shops are aimed at the tourists trade and sell their local handicrafts such as ceramics and basket wear.

On the outskirts of the village there is quite a lot of building in progress, but the new buildings must be kept to the same style of the village.
This will then hopefully keep the character of this award winning village!
