With your own car - Con tu coche
The best way to arrive to Frigiliana is with your own or hired car. Either if you are coming from Malaga or Granada the best route is to reach the Axarquia by the N-340 speed way and take the "Frigiliana" exit. Then it's just a few kilometres by the MA-105 road till you'll arrive to the city. There is a free parking between the old and new town with an useful city map.
El mejor camino para llegar a Frigiliana es con tu propio coche o con uno alquilado. Tanto si vienes desde Málaga como desde Granada lo mejor es llegar a la Axarquía por la autovía N-340 y tomar la salida "Frigiliana". Después son sólo unos kilómetros por la carretera MA-105 hasta que llegas al pueblo. Hay un aparcamiento gratuito entre la ciudad vieja y la nueva con un práctico plano de situación.
Getting to Frigiliana
To go to Frigiliana from Madrid (which is what I did), catch a train from Madrid to Malaga. In Malaga, got to the bus station - located right next door to the train station - and catch a bus to Nerja. In Nerja, go to Pescia Avenue, where you can catch a bus to Frigiliana (they go about 6 times a day). In Frigiliana, the bus back to Nerja stops at Plaza del Igenio, Plaza de Dona Amparo Guerrero, and Avda. de Andalucia.
Tip: You can also take a cab between Nerja and Frigiliana, it is not too far and not too expensive.

How to get there by car
If you come from Malaga through the new motorway N340 (before used to be smaller lol) you will have to take the exit of Nerja.
On the roundabout go to North and you will be close to Frigiliana. There are two options and I will suggest to take the left one, as it has the parking area, the right one has less chances of parking.
Take the Green bus to Frigiliana from Nerja
The bus to Frigiliana is distinctive by being the only bus that is coloured Green and Cream that calls at Nerja's bus station.
90 centimos. one way will take you to this picturesque villiage.
Buses run at hourly intervals at half past the hour from Nerja.
Journey time - 15 - 20 minutes.

Bus or Car
There are several buses a day that run from Nerja (I think there is one every hour, but I can be wrong) or, alternatively, leave your car at the car Park at the bottom of the hill.
Bus from Nerja
The Nerja>Frigiliana bus runs from Nerja's 'bus station' (really just a couple of laybys and an ALSA ticket booth on the Avenida de Pescia).
You can't buy tickets in advance, or from the ticket booth. You just pay the driver as you get on. Fare was 1 euro in January 2014.
The bus takes about 15 minutes to travel up to Frigiliana and stops in the centre of the village. The return journey starts from the same place.
I think you might be able to find timetables on www.alsa.es , the Spanish bus website, but if not you can see them in my photo...and they were also pinned up to the outside of the ALSA ticket booth at Nerja's bus station.

Driving from Málaga you have to take the A-7 direction to Almeria, take the exit num 292, follow the signs and take the road MA-5105. I recommend parking before reaching the old town because of the area is impossible to park and traffic is only accessible to residents.
Conduciendo desde Málaga tienes que coger la A-7 en dirección a Almería, coge la salida 292 y sigue las señales para coger la ctra ma-5105. Recomiendo aparcar antes de llegar al casco antiguo porque por esa zona es imposible aparcar y el tráfico es solo accesible para residentes.
