Frigiliana Three Cultures Festival 2022
Frigiliana organises the Three cultures Festival at the end of August every year
The Festival of 3 Cultures of Frigiliana is the festival not to be missed in August, just after the Feria de Málaga. Below you will find the programme of the festival.
Moreover, it takes place in one of the most beautiful villages in Andalusia, Frigiliana. This village is just above Nerja, in Axarquia.
During 4 days, the 3 cultures that marked medieval Spain are celebrated: the Muslim, Jewish and Christian cultures. These 3 cultures have coexisted for many centuries in the village itself.
During these 4 days, there is also the “Ruta de la Tapa” with local specialities of these 3 cultures.
The dates of the festival of the three cultures 2022 in Frigiliana: 25-28 August 2022
Visitors will discover these three great cultures: Christian, Arab and Sephardic, through food, music, art and ancestral traditions. The mayor of Frigiliana calls this festival, the festival of sensations. Indeed, it combines art, gastronomy and music. During the festival, you can enjoy the programme of festivities during the day and in the evening.
The programme is of a high quality, whether it is the parades in the streets, the concerts in the church of St. Anthony of Padua or in the square of the 3 cultures. This square is located right next to the Ingenio Ntra Sra del Carmen. It is the only place in continental Europe that still produces sugarcane honey!
Finally, many international stars have already taken part in this festival, which has gained a great reputation. Manu Chao gave a fabulous concert in 2015.
Here is the programme of the Three Cultures Festival in Frigiliana for 2022:
Among the concerts, there will be an exceptional one by Omara Portuondo, a famous singer of two musical styles (son and bolero). She has been called the “diva of The Buena Vista Social Club“. She sang with Ibrahim Ferrer and Compay Segundo. This concert will be held on Sunday 28 at 10 pm.
