Villa Holidays In Frigiliana 2017 | Villa Plus

Holiday Villas in the Resort of Frigiliana

Exploring Frigiliana on a hot day can be thirsty work, and the only way to see it properly is on foot. (This is not flip-flop friendly territory!) But a few tapas with a long cold beer, a refreshing jug of sangria or a glass of the local wine, resting in a lovely shady plaza will soon restore you, ready to return to the maze of little streets. You can find some interesting handmade pottery and ceramics to take home, as well as olive oil, sweet Muscatel wine and jars of molasses. The molasses – a bit like honey but made from sugar cane - is produced in a 16th century Renaissance palace in the centre of the village. As if Frigiliana was not pretty enough already, there is a river - Rio Higuerón - running through the centre, providing lovely walks and picnic spots.

Exploring Frigiliana On Villa Holidays
Frigiliana

Frigiliana is not just a pretty village, it is also of great historical importance. The ruined fort on the hillside above the village was the scene of a bloody battle during an uprising by the oppressed Moorish community against the ruling Catholics in 1569. The Moors were defeated, and apparently some of them threw themselves off the fort to die on the rocks below, rather than be captured. The old Moorish part of Frigiliana has some ornate floor mosaics that tell the story of the Christians and Moors who once lived there, as far back as the 8th century.

The beaches nearest to Frigiliana are in Nerja, 15 minutes’ drive away. Nerja’s two main beaches are huge Burriana and tiny Torrecilla. Playa Burriana is a large, flat beach of sand and pebbles, about a 10 minute walk out of town to the east. The area has developed almost as a separate resort, with all kinds of sporting activities, children’s play areas, shops, bars and restaurants. On the beach itself there are showers, beach volleyball nets, pedalos, jet-skis, banana boats, kayaks and sunbeds for hire. Giant paellas are cooked here and there are any number of beach shacks - chiringitos – for good food and cold beer. Playa Torrecilla is only 300 metres long and 40 metres wide, with an attractive promenade and the ruins of an old Moorish watchtower. Rocky promontories at either end of Torrecilla beach are great spots for snorkelling and fishing.

If you feel in need of a more cultural experience on your holiday, you are less than two hours by car from Grenada. The drive over the mountains is in itself quite an experience to write home about! Visitors usually concentrate on the Alhambra, the 10th-century Berber palace that is a Unesco World Heritage Site. This Arabian Nights masterpiece, more or less intact, an architectural marvel framed by the stunning backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, is a must-see. However, the old city has a great deal else to offer, from atmospheric Arabic tearooms to the fine tradition of free tapas with your drinks!
