    In fact I don't know why this passage is called "The turret" because I didn't see any tower there but any way it's one more typical nice place with lots of plants, flowers and also small fruits.

    En realidad no sé por qué este callejón se llama "El Torreón" ya que no ví ninguna torre aquí. De todas maneras este es otro sitio típico muy bonito, con muchas plantas, flores e incluso pequeñas frutas.

    Town hall - Ayuntamiento

    You can make out the town hall from the rest of buildings just for the flags, because it's one more white house, as others. Well, in addition there are a plaque which says: "Frigiliana. This city was visited the 23th of June of 1998 by HH.MM. the Kings of Spain".

    Puedes distinguir el ayuntamiento del resto de los edificios solamente por las banderas, ya que es una casa blanca más, como las otras. Bien, además hay una placa que dice: "Frigiliana. Esta villa fue visitada el día 23 de junio de 1998 por SS.MM. los Reyes de España".

    This is other of the nice passages we visited strolling by the Royal Street. It's called the Passage of the Lord because of the Cross placed on its entrance, with a lighted candle. When you come in there is one more steppy street.

    Este es otro de los bonitos callejones que visitamos paseando por la calle Real. Se llama el callejón del Señor por la Cruz que está situada a su entrada, con una vela encendida. Cuando entras hay otra calle con escaleras.

    This lovely street drives you to some craftmanships' shops where, among them my favourite one is placed! At the end of such a small street you can see a blue sign: "El taller de las calabazas" ("The pumpkins' workshop"). its owned by an artisan who made a lot differents thing just with pumpkings, from spoons to lamps. It's very nice for an original present!

    Esta calle tan encantadora te lleva a algunas tiendas de artesanía, entre las que está mi favorita. Al final de esta pequeña calleja puedes ver un cartel azul: "El taller de las calabazas". Pertenece a un artesano que hace muchos objetos diferentes solamente con calabazas, desde cucharas a lámparas. ¡Está muy bien para un regalo original!

    Coat of arms - Escudo
    1 more image

    Walking from the Mill by the calle Real (Royal Street) we saw this coat of arms, in the corner with the steppy street Hernando Darra. This symbol was at the Mill when it used to be a palace and it represents the family coat of arms of the Counts of Frigiliana.

    Paseando desde el Ingenio por la calle Real vimos este escudo, haciendo esquina con la escalonada calle Hernando Darra. Este símbolo estaba en el Ingenio cuando era un palacio y representa el escudo de la familia de los Condes de Frigiliana.

    There is a small archaeological museum inside the "House of Culture". It's quite interesting, because they show the way the very first inhabitants in the area, the Phoenicians, used to live, how they worked, how they farmed, and even there are some stones and skulls of them.

    Hay un pequeño museo arqueológico en la "Casa de la Cultura". Es bastante interesante porque muestra la manera en que vivian los primeros habitantes de la zona, los fenicios, vivían, como trabajaban, como cultivaban, e incluso muestran alguns huesos y calaveras de ellos.

    If you enjoy walking...

    by Pauldelabar Updated Nov 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A Frigiliana street.

    If you are an avid walker or hiker, then Frigiliana is a place that you will love.

    Many streets and walkways can ONLY be accessed on foot but the going is rather heavy as the gradients are severe.

    The views and scenery are well worth the effort of the hike, however. There are many local shops selling local 'Frigiliana wine' and also designer clothing etc.

    There are excellent places to eat lunch or just take a refreshing drink while savouring the views.

    Warning: In the unlikely event that it rains, the cobbled streets can get slippery and care should be taken especially on gradients.

    The Old Quarter

    by tejanasueca Written Aug 8, 2004

    The Old Quarter, Frigiliana

    The Old Quarter in Frigiliana, and within this the old Mudejar neighborhood is the main showcase for the popular Arab architectural heritage in Malaga. Frigiliana has been awarded the largest number of prizes for its well-preserved heritage in the province. The most stricking characteristic of the Old Quarter, and Frigiliana in general, is the cleanliness and the withwashed walls and the flowers.
