What to see in Frigiliana ?

Ingenio Nuestra Senora del Carmen

In addition to its beauty, you will see el Ingenio Nuestra Sra del Carmen, which is today the only place in Europe where sugar cane honey is made. A local specialty that deliciously accompanies many dishes such as fried eggplant or cheese.

This building, dates from the end of the 16th century, it was built in part with materials from the Arab castle destroyed during the reconquest. Sugar cane honey has been produced there since 1630 !

The festival of three cultures

If you come in August, do not hesitate to come and see the festival of the three cultures (Muslim, Jewish and Christian), which is part of the history of the village. Concerts mixing the 3 cultures are given in different places of the village, including the Saint Antoine de Padoue church. Many artists (like Manu Chao) have already performed during the festival. And it is the occasion to appreciate the village in the evening in its lit alleys while breathing the perfume of the flowers like jasmine.

Visit the Church : Saint Anthony of Padua

This church was built on a former Hermit, himself built on the old mosque whose minaret has been preserved and transformed . I always think to myself… the voice of the muezzin or the sound of the bells… the call to prayer has always been made from the same place for centuries!
