Things to do in Frigiliana: Explore the Town
The main attraction of Frigiliana is its picturesque streets lined with perfect whitewashed houses and potted plants. Frigiliana is located on a steep hill and many of the streets are inaccessible to automobiles. Locals get around by walking or sometimes donkey or motorcycle. Naturally, the pace of life is slower. The best time to wander the streets is in the morning and evening. Although Frigiliana is not accessible by train, it is accessible by bus and during the day you’ll find several tourist buses in center town – and visitors exploring. However, in the morning, before the buses have arrived the locals do many of their errands and these are the most peaceful hours in the beautiful village of Frigiliana.
