A perfect spot to enjoy a beer and watch the world go pass. Sat above the plaza in front of the old palace it's a great sun trap with a local friendly atmosphere.

The old historic sugar-cane factory of Frigiliana is located near the bus stop and the Frigiliana public flower gardens. Frigiliana offers good hiking after you have seen the lovely village.Autocares Fajardo leave Nerja bus station for the 20min bus-trip(1 euro each way).No time-table in bus-stop.

This is really just to view from the outside but an important part of the local history. You can't miss it, as it is right in the centre of old and new parts. They do sell the sugar cane locally and it is used in...More
