Property for sale in Frigiliana
5 Kilometres north of Nerja, a hillside village bordering the Almijara, Tejeda and Alhama National Park , is the picturesque village of Frigiliana with it`s beautiful church square, undoubtedly one of the best of the typical Andalucían ‘White Villages’ and has won many awards for it´s outstandingly well kept condition and cleanliness. The hill overlooking the village, El Fuerte, was the scene of the final battle, and defeat, of the Axarquia Moors in the 1500's.
On top of the hill are a few remains of the old fort from which it is said that many Moors threw themselves from it rather than be captured by the Christians.
The village is a labyrinth of narrow, cobbled streets lined with white-washed houses. Do remember that many of the pedestrianised streets are steep and frequently dark passageways or “ pasajes “ frequently open onto a bar terrace or restaurant!
In June during the Feria a bull run is organized through the village streets. For four days at the end of August each year, Frigiliana hosts the Festival of the Three Cultures (Festival de las Tres Culturas), celebrating the region's historic confluence and co-existence of Christian, Muslim and Jewish traditions.
