Frigiliana Festival of 3 Cultures 2022

Frigiliana organises this festival at the end of August every year

The Festival of Three Cultures of Frigiliana is the festival not to be missed in August, just after the Feria de Málaga.

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 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!
