Welcome to Frigiliana

But, like all beauty, the prettiness here comes with a price: you won’t have the place to yourself. Coaches pull up daily and disgorge their cargo into the sinuous streets adorned with pots of blood-red geraniums.

Like most small Andalucian towns, Frigiliana is split into two parts: old and new. The steeply banked old town is scattered with pictorial signage directing you from castle to church to fountain. However, the real exhibit is the town itself. Wander around. Get lost. Find yourself.
