What You Can Expect

Frigiliana and Nerja Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Admire the Mediterranean coast on your drive to Frigiliana and Nerja

After pickup from your chosen location in the Costa del Sol region, drive along a beautiful coastal road to Frigiliana, about two hours away. Hop out of the coach to explore this attractive village with your guide.

Wander the narrow streets lined with uniformed white houses, and visit the medieval Moorish fortress. After a guided tour, explore more at your leisure. Perhaps shop for souvenirs, check out the famous local pottery or sample some dessert wine. Take a walk along the cliffside promenade, once the site of an imposing Moorish castle. Here, enjoy panoramic views of the Mediterranean against a mountainous backdrop.

Just a short drive away is Nerja, a seaside town that was once a sleepy fishing village. Old Town is still virtually unchanged, with its winding streets and alleys. Admire whitewashed houses with wrought-iron terraces overflowing with geraniums.

Upgrade to include a visit to the Caves of Nerja. These fascinating prehistoric caverns contain some of the oldest cave paintings in the country. Tour the caves' various halls and galleries, which today are used for ballet and artistic performances.

After your time in Nerja, relax on the drive back to your chosen Costa del Sol location.

We enjoyed visiting both cities and the caves. We could have spent more time in each city.

A fantastic trip. Frigiliana was a beautiful little village to visit and experience a more authentic Spain and the Caves were amazing. Unfortjunately we were not able to see the cave paintings as these were closed to the public but still a great expereince. Only could have been improved by having the audio guides to listen to as we wandered the caves.

The cave was fascinating. More information on the caves would have been good. I would have appreciated a recommendation for lunch. It would have been nice to have a bit more time at the first village shop, also would have been good to get there after the shops had opened, some were still opening as we left..
