Wondering what to do with yourselves this weekend? Why not pop up to Frigiliana for their very popular Fiestas de Tres Culturas?
Frigiliana, which is an attraction in itself, puts on this festival to celebrate the three cultures that have played a part in its DNA: Christian, Muslim and Jewish.
There will be a medieval fair with around 100 stalls, interesting gastronomic experiences and live music. In fact, it is hoped this year to reach the 40,000-visitor mark over the weekend. Talking of food, there’s a tapa route this weekend, too.
The market will be spread out next to the Plaza del Ingenio, right next to the only working molasses factory in the whole of Europe. This is a good point to start off from before making your way to the Barribarto (old town) to see a spot of pottery and leather-working.
The Town Hall has a good webpage in English, amongst other languages, about the Barribarto and other points of touristic interest in Frigiliana.
The narrow streets have been decorated by the local women’s association and both Callejón del Inquisidor and the Callejón del Tejedor will be candle lit.
There will be a total of nine concerts culminating with the Cuban, Pablo Milanés on Sunday the 25th. They will be held on the municipal parking and will have free entrance. Oh, and there are conferencias, workshops and cinema.
Finally, on Sunday in the Casa del Apero there will be a play entitled, La Cabalgada de Frigiliana, covering a true story about the village by Pablo Rojo.
