"The prettiest village in Andalucía" Top 5 Page for this destination Frigiliana by Carmela71

Frigiliana Travel Guide: 118 reviews and 392 photos

This village on the top of the mountains (300 meters above the sea level) with incredible seaviews is just 7 km north of Nerja.

Apart of being a incredible white village as by town hall law they do not allow to change the outside of the houses to maintain the style. You can have incredible views.

One of my housemates of University lived here, and the other in Nerja, so we used to come often here.

My recommendation is to try the restaurant called La Bodeguilla, not the modern one with terrace views, try the one behind the church, inside the little streets. Sit on the patio and enjoy the food.

Voted the 'prettiest village in Andalucía' by the Spanish tourism authority.

All Photos had been take by me or Stace (Beach_dog)

    Parece un pueblo bonito. El proximo fin de semana voy a Competa, y estaba hechando un vistazo que hay por los alrederores.
