Nerja, Frigiliana & The Lost Village
“Its streets crowned the hill, like the sea painted deep blue with a green background full of lunar whites. The calm of its light accompanied us as we climbed its steep streets, leaving behind the old ingenuity, which was the hub of local commerce..." In this experience, focused on all kinds of audiences, it will take us through the streets of Nerja and its famous Balcony of Europe. Frigiliana, known as the "Villa de las Tres Culturas", has a preferred place on the list of the most beautiful villages in the Iberian Peninsula. The villa's current layout responds to times of Al Andalus, finding its seed in the 9th and 10th century rentals. It stands out in history as an example of coexistence, as they lived for Muslim, Christian and Christian centuries here in harmony until the conquest of this land by the Catholic Kings (with the consequent expulsion). Nowadays it offers us unique images, almost transporting us into the space and in time. Features that make it an ideal destination not only for those who want a pleasant visual walk through history and legends, but it is almost a must for photography lovers. From here we headed towards El Acebuchal, a hidden village that has been recovered today after more than 50 years of neglect.
