Frigiliana has a very special micro-climate, I guess due to the Sierra Almijana. They have a yearly average of 18C.
I say I guess as it is similar situation as Marbella, we are looking the sea and protected by the mountains.
The reason this is maintained so well, is because the people living there do the whitewashing every year so it look as nice as it does.
You will be surprised of the clean streets and the amount of flowers and plants all over.
Sierra de Almijara, this mountain range gives this special look to this village. It protects from the cold winds of the north, and allows Frigiliana to have the incredible views that it has.
You can find itineraries if you go first to the tourist office, that is sited at the beginning of the village.
It is good if you plan to follow the ceramic tiles, so they give you a map to follow it.
But i had never done it lol, always gone there and enjoy a good walk with no plan at all.
I guess after being there many times I may do always similar itineraries, but never planned lol
This is one of my favourites areas of Frigiliana, the narrow streets climbing the mountain till the top. In them you can find little entrances to side streets like this one.
I love the way they decorate and maintain for the tourist.
As most of the Andalucía villages, the influences of other cultures had been maintain.
But one of the main reasons you can find little streets was to prevent the walkers from the heavy sun and the heat, as they keep the shadow.
As I had commented before in other tips. Frigiliana is a very photogenic village.
You can choose scenery or details …
I love the white houses with the blue windows, it remained me the Greek islands….
Any place is good for a photograph in this village.
You can choose to photo the landscape, or the little white houses, or the little details on the facades of the houses, typical Andalucian or ….
I do not know how many times I had been there, but when ever I go I always find something new and interesting that I missed the first time.
Favorite thing: Frigiliana's lovely white church IGLESIAS DE SAN ANTONIO was built in the 17th century. The interior was absolutely beautiful.

Thye are very pretty and and made very well.
Here is another ceramic tile example , just on any wall in the village ,it really adds to the beauty of this village.
I like the colour of this one.
Favorite thing: Every corner can bring you a surprise. A nice window, colourful flowers along the facades, plants, patios, little streets…..
The church of Saint Anthony of Padua in Frigiliana was built in the 17th Century and restored in 1976.
Fondest memory: The church was built in the Renascence style, with a traditional Latin cross shaped nave
