Frigiliana Andalucia: Situated about 6 kilometres inland from the coastal resort of Nerja, the pretty town of Frigiliana is one of the typical "white villages" of the region. A popular day tip destination from Nerja, Frigiliana sits on the lower slopes of the Sierra de Tejeda surrounded by orchards and farm land, and offering spectacular views of the coastline and the Higueron River.

The town in Andalucia has a population of around 2,000 and is a maze of narrow cobbled streets, lined with pretty whitewashed houses, draped with bougainvillea, it has formerly held the title of "Prettiest Village in Andalucia" (1998), it has won numerous other awards for its charm and beauty.

Frigiliana has a somewhat chequered history and was settled by both Phoenicians and Romans in the centuries BC, during the Arab occupation of the Iberian peninsular a fortified castle was constructed above the town , and it was here that there was a bloody battle during the rebellion of Alpujarras (1568), there was a seige by the Christian forces and eventually the castle was totally destroyed and its Moorish inhabitants killed or deported, according to legend, many threw themselves from the walls of the castle rather than be captured by the Christians and their bones can still be found in the surrounding countryside, a colourful fiesta held every June, commemorates the battle.
