We spent 10 days in Spain and of all the places we visited, this was our favorite. It is a white village that is very picturesque. The streets all have beautiful tile designs and the flowers and narrow streets make this village a must see....More

A beautiful hilltop Spanish town. More or less sums it up. Nothing makes this standout more from other hilltop villages, it depends on what you've seen already, if your staying in a modern high rise tourist resort then this village is idyllic. The bus up...More

Loved this beautiful town so picturesque! We spent a day meandering around the streets of old and new town Frigliana. Well worth a visit if in the area. Prices in bars and restaurants were not extortionate to be honest which is a refreshing change. Loved...More

Beautiful place such a lovely walk and area. Excellent town and so close to Malaga. We got reminded of Santorini.

A visit to the Old Town area of Frigiliana is a great way to spend a couple of hours. Narrow, steep winding streets, small shady courtyards and panoramic vistas. Interesting little shops and nice restaurants with terraces looking out to the sea. It gets pretty...More
