    NARROW COBBLESTONE STREETS

    by LoriPori Written Feb 17, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Perhaps the most charming aspect of Frigiliana is its narrow cobblestone streets. Each corner, each turn, opens up another wonderful view. I love the wrought-iron balconies, the wonderful tiles people put on the walls for decoration. I love the vivid blue doors. The old-fashioned lamp-posts. The potted plants placed strategically outside residences.

    FRIGILIANA

    Favorite thing: You can experience the real Spain in the beautifufl white village of FRIGILIANA. Narrow cobblestone streets lined by whitewashed houses, their wrought iron balconies filled with planters of brilliant red geraniums. Frigiliana has just recently been discovered by tourists and I have noticed that quite a few tour companies are now including a visit here with a stop in Nerja.
    Situated in the foothills of the Sierra de Enmedio, Frigiliana is such a picturesque village to visit.

    Fondest memory: There are 12 ceramic tile panels along the calle Alta (High Street) in the Moorish neighbourhood which describe the Battle of the Rock. It was a dramatic historical fact happened in the 16th century when the Moorish were turn out from Frigiliana. A lot of people of both sides died and the Rock was completly coloured in red.

    Hay 12 paneles cerámicos a lo largo de la calle Alta, en el barrio morisco, que relatan la Batalla del Peñón. Este fue un dramático acontecimiento histórico ocurrido en el siglo XVI en el que los moros fueron expulsados de Frigiliana. Mucha gente murió en ambos bandos y el peñón quedó completamente de color rojo.

    Fondest memory: Ok, watching cats is nothing special in a small town, I know :-) But I liked this one who followed us during a part of our stroll for the old town.

    Vale, ver gatos no es nada extraordinario en un pueblo pequeño, lo se :-) Pero me gusto este que nos siguió durante una parte de nuestro paseo por el barrio viejo.

    Favorite thing: In spite of it's a city with very narrow streets and there is no space to have trees you are going to see a lot of plans and flowers during your stroll. People look after their flower-plots next to their houses or at the entrance of the passeges, giving to Frigiliana a charming atmosphere.

    A pesar de que el pueblo tiene calle muy estrechas y no hay espacio para plantar árboles verás bastantes plantas y flores durante tu paseo. La gente cuida sus macetas junto a sus casas o a la entrada de los callejones, dando un ambiente muy bonito a Frigiliana.

    Fondest memory: Walking though Frigiliana is always a pleasure. Its walls are always completly white and there is a special atmosphere which bring you back to ancient times, where the villages had narrow streets and the houses had its wall painted in white and very small windows trying to avoid the heat as much as possible.

    Pasear por Frigiliana siempre es un placer. Sus muros siempre están completamente blancos y hay una atmósfera especial que te transporta a tiempos pasados, donde las ciudades tenían calles estrechas y sus casas estaban pintadas de blanco y tenían ventanas pequeñas para evitar el calor del verano.

    New town - Barrio nuevo
    1 more image

    Fondest memory: Frigiliana, as any other city, is growing and it's necesary to build new houses and to design new streets. That's something normal. But the interesting fact here is that the new town respects the traditional plan of the old one. Its streets are a little bit wider to let cars pass though but houses still being white and they keep untouched the recognized Frigiliana soul.

    Frigiliana, como cualquier otro pueblo, está creciendo y para ello es necesario construir nuevas casas y diseñar nuevas calles. Esto es algo normal. Pero lo interesante aquí es que el barrio nuevo respeta los parámetros del viejo. Sus calles son un poco más anchas para permitir pasar a los coches pero las casas siguen siendo blancas y mantienen intacto el espítitu del pueblo.

    Ceramic Tiles.

    Favorite thing: The story about the history of Frigiliana is depicted on the drawings on the Ceramic tiles you will find these tiles on the walls of the village and I believe there are 12 such tiles.

    Fondest memory: What I liked most about Frigiliana is the people that live there take it in stride that we the tourist with our camera's all over take pictures of their door's and their flowers ,and their beautiful houses,sometimes it must be hard to get any privacy for the people there.
    I did not see anyone give us dirty looks , nothing but friendly and smiling faces.

    Hernando.

    Favorite thing: .
    I am going to find out who Hernando el Darra is ,or was I should say.
    Hernando el Darry lived during the times of Phelipe the second. this is what I found about Hernando el Darra.
    In their fertile valley of the Sanguino the best tropical fruits of the zone occur and, according to investigations although without historical rigor, its name must to a small battle that took place, in the reign of Felipe II, between Hernando the Moon Darra and Antonio captain. This fact took place in 1570 and had to be developed in the stream of this name, natural exit of the Almijara Mountain range towards the creek of Maro.
