White village of Frigiliana

Why are the houses white in Frigiliana?

There are 3 reasons:

  • When Christians took over from the Moors, they painted it white for God to see that it was now a Christian village (as it is considered a holy color)
  • the white reflects the heat, making the houses cooler in the summer
  • The lime used in the whitewashing of the walls is antibacterial, repelling insects

Since 1971, a law imposed by the mayor forces houses to be maintained white.

About the name

Frigiliana does not mean anything in Spanish.
There are 2 main theories about the origin of the name:

#1 to 7 - Best things to do in Frigiliana - the old town

The best thing to do in Frigiliana is just to walk around and admire the beautiful views and the charm for the village.
But here are a few things to pay attention to as you explore.

#1 - Elect the most beautiful streets

There is a big effort in the village to keep the houses in good condition and to make the narrow streets more attractive with plants and flowers.
Take side streets and get lost in the hope of finding the most charming street of all. In the picture below, you can see my favorite one.

21 things to do in Frigiliana (Andalucia): Tips + Map (16)

#2 - Collect pavement drawings

Don't just look at the houses. Look down.
The other interest of the village are the beautiful cobbled streets.
However, don't be fooled. They look old and historic but the streets were paved only recently. Until 50/60 years ago, they were made of dirt and gravel.

But as they built them, they were really creative and you can find many different shapes.

#3 - Notice the fountains

Throughout the village, you can find fountains from various period.There is

  • the Fuente Vieja (Old Fountain) built by the Moors and restored in 1640.
  • the old Roman fountain (very old but not especially beautiful) with a source in the mountains.
  • the fountain of 3 cultures (to be seen further in the article).
  • and more...

#4 - Travel back in time - find the 12 plaques

Throughout the village you can also find ancient looking ceramic plaques.
Once again, they are not very old. They were installed for the National Award of Beautification.
They depict the most famous moments in the history of Frigiliana.
For example, the one below is a map of the area in the mid-16th century. It will allow you to better understand the other plaques.

Below is a selection of what to look for.

#8 - Palacio de los Condes de Frigiliana a.k.a. El Ingenio

The main building you will notice is right in the middle of the village.
The 2000 sqm 'Palacio de los Condes de Frigiliana' has its first build in the 16th century, as a home for the Manrique de Lara family, in Renaissance style. They used some material from the old castle to build it.
Later, it was turned into a sugar factory producing syrup.
At the time, there were mills on the hills above to grind grain and sugar cane.

It is also known as El Ingenio and the House of the counts.

Another beautiful feature are the remains of a granary "Los Reales Pósitos".
Built in the 18th century, it was used to store surplus during the good harvest years to redistribute during the bad ones.
A warehouse may have been there before, since 1640.

Today houses have replaced it and only the arches remain.

As I wrote earlier, several churches were burnt during the war.
One remains: La Iglesia de San Antonio. It was built in the 17th century under Mason Bernardo de Godoy, in Renaissance style.
It has across-shaped nave that divides it into three different aisles.
Don't miss the ceiling in the Mudéjar style (with wooden trusses), the bell tower (which was a minaret from when it served as a mosque).
However, inside, almost everything only dates from the 1940s onwards.

100m from the church, opposite the town hall is one of the oldest buildings in the village: El Torréon.
The Moors were using it as military barracks and then it became a granary.

#14 - The Castle of Lizar

If you have the time and the energy, you can climb to the top of the hill where the ruins of the castle are (steep).
There is really not much left, but the views overlooking Frigiliana and Nerja are worth it.
