This is a short summary of the full story on Linkedin

In Calum Glenny’s latest travel blog he visits the beautiful village of Frigiliana in Andalusia, Spain and explores the Main Street in the Old Town, Calle Real. He visits fabulous local bars, restaurants and shops in his walk through the stunning pueblo blanco. Calum discovers local food and delicacies such as the village honey and berejena’s.

Calum touches on the local transport available and for such a small village the great sports facilities within and on its doorstep in Nerja.

He names some of the local people who work tirelessly in the village shops, restaurants, and bars to ensure the village provides a superb service to both tourists and locals alike.

From both a short-term or longer stay perspective he covers all accommodation budgets and standards of flats, apartments, and villas, also including boutique hotels.

Calum also takes us to some of the popular tourist attractions and activities as well as some of the lesser-known. One unusual venue highlighted in the blog is used in the film ‘Death of Antonio Sanchez Lomas’. Filmed in Frigiliana, it demonstrates the effects of the violence stemming from Franco’s dictatorship and how the tragedies of that period are still reverberating through the village inhabitants today.

As fiestas are plentiful, especially in smaller villages in Spain, Calum speaks of the last weekend in August when the village hosts the Three Cultures Festival. The event highlights how and why Jews, Muslims, and Christians should live in peace and harmony.  Despite a turbulent history, this celebration gives Frigiliana the opportunity to show off to the rest of the world.
