Uno de los pueblos andaluces más bonitos

Frigiliana is a small city placed on the Malaga Mountain range, in the Axarquia area. It's considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Andalusia, and maybe, in the whole Spain, because it is a very tidy and white city. It has even received some prizes for its efforts of improvement and embellishment.

Frigiliana es una pequeña población situada en la sierra de Málaga, en la comarca de la Axarquía. Se considera uno de los pueblos más bonitos de Andalucía y, posiblemente, de toda España, ya que es una población muy cuidada y blanca. Incluso ha recibido algunos premios por sus esfuerzos en la mejora y embellecimiento de la ciudad.

It's a very small and traditional city with just a few more of 2.000 inhabitants but, on the other hand, it's becaming more and more international because a lot of foreing people feel in love with Frigiliana and they fix their residence here. Among of them there are a large number of artisans which work in different specialities as wood, wicker, pottery, painting, wax and even making staff in pumpkins!

Es una ciudad muy pequeña y tradicional, con sólo algo más de 2.000 habitantes pero que, por otro lado, está siendo cada vez más internacional porque muchas personas extranjeras se enamoran de Frigiliana y fijan su residencia aquí. Entre ellos hay un gran número de artesanos que trabajan con diferentes materiales como madera, mimbre, cerámica, pintura, cera, ¡e incluso haciendo objetos de calabaza!

In spite of Frigiliana is on the mountains it's not far away from Nerja, which is its nearest coastal city, so you can enjoy of mountain and beach within a small distance. In addition it's just 56 kilometres far from the city of Malaga (the provincial capital) and its international airport.

A pesar de que Frigiliana está en la montaña no está lejos de Nerja, que es la ciudad costera más cercana, así que puedes disfrutar de montaña y playa en una distancia pequeña. Además está a sólo 56 kilómetros de la ciudad de Málaga (la capital provincial) y su aeropuerto internacional.
