On our way back to Seville from Cartagena, we stopped in the village of Frigiliana. Known as “the most beautiful pueblo blanco in Spain,” we found a nice Airbnb there and decided to hang out for a few days.

Situated less than an hour east of Málaga and just north of the coastal town of Nerja, Frigiliana is home to 3,000 people, a whole lot of whom are expats from the UK and Northern Europe. The town also gets a lot of foreign and Spanish day tourists coming from the aforementioned cities, so it’s always bustling with something.

Despite its heavily expat vibe – we joked that our Spanish is better than most of the people who live here – Frigiliana still retains a lot of its old-world charm. It has an old, Moorish-Mudéjar district that was inhabited by the Moors centuries before the Brits and Germans showed up.

(And, for the record: I don’t blame the expats and the tourists. This place is gorgeous and its climate is amazing. I 100% understand why people would want to live here. Especially those coming from colder climes.)

Our Airbnb happened to be squarely in the center of that district, which provided us with plenty of views and easy access to all of Frigiliana’s sights. The town is also known for having more than its fair share of delicious restaurants, so we were sure to gobble up plenty of goodies as well.

So, here ya go! Some more pictures of our time here.

And, because craft beer apparently finds me, there just happened to be a craft beer bar/store and brewery about 30 seconds from our Airbnb. In a town of 3,000 people, I didn’t expect that! Alas, here we are. And I am happy (despite my growl).

Javier and Choro founded the La Axarca brewery and the craft beer shop, La Domadora y el León, after living in Madrid and other places, and deciding they needed a more chill lifestyle. They found it here in Frigiliana, and now brew and distribute some of the most yummy beer in Spain.

Being an expat haven and also in the midst of Spain’s growing embrace of craft beer, there’s no shortage of clientele here.
