Located on the slope of the Almijara mountain range, it offers one of the most spectacular views of the Costa del Sol. The structure and physiognomy of its old town respond to the layout of the Arab period.
Its narrow, winding and often staggered streets communicate with each other through covered passageways and are sometimes flanked with doors that were closed to reinforce the defense of the population. A tour of its old town reveals interesting glazed ceramic mosaics, which recount the events that occurred between the Moors and Christians in the Peñón de Frigiliana. Also worth a visit is the Palace of the Counts of Frigiliana, from the 16th century, which was later converted into a sugar mill for the manufacture of cane honey.
