Lovely place. Well worth a visit. Good food. Nice to walk the streets and do a little shopping. Take the little red train tour, (which is actually more like a bus). Quaint, authentic Spanish town hugging the mountainside with romantic, white washed houses and narrow...More

My review isn’t of the fountain but of the village itself. On a wet Saturday we caught the bus from Nerja to Frigiliana (the bus is 1 Euro and can be caught just down from the bus station (it isn’t an Alsa bus)). We didn’t...More

We went for a look while visiting in Frigiliana. Nothing special. Wouldn't go out my way to see it. Village itself is very nice, if a bit over geared to tourists. Still traditional, but every other shop claims to sell artisan this or that.

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

Quaint, beautiful and well worth a walk along the narrow cobbled streets with lots of great shops to stop and browse in. A pleasant morning spent.

Very easy to find this fountain, don't expect much of a fountain, its a tiny trickle of water, but the fountain itself is unique to see. I'd include it on your walk around town.

This plaque is at the junction of c/Real and c/Hernando El Darra. To visit La Fuente Vieja you need to continue along c/Real, past the church and down the slope of c/Chorruelo. Turn left opposite Bar La Alegría Del Barrio into the small plaza. It’s...More
