Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I propose to continue with a visit to a beautiful villa Andalusian province of Malaga, this is the fifth picture, I hope you like it. Here are some letters on the villa.
I dedicate to our friend Luis (Adramad) by his admiration for the place.

Frigiliana is a municipality in the province of Malaga, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. It is located in the region of Axarquia, the easternmost region of the province, and integrated into the judicial district of Torrox.
The villa has an area of ​​39.74 square kilometers, located between the reliefs of the Sierra de Almijara and the Mediterranean Sea. In the southern slope of this mountain, 300 meters above sea level, is the village of Frigiliana.

The municipality limits the north with the municipality of Cómpeta; to the west, Torrox; and south and east, Nerja.
Frigiliana is accessible from Málaga Airport via the Mediterranean motorway towards Almeria, about 60 kilometers away.

Phoenician settlers left a paleopúnica necropolis of tumuli, the seventh century. C., in the early Cerrillo del Tejar, now known as the Shadow Cerrillo, from which the necropolis is preserved. Outside these places they have also appeared coins of the Phoenician and Roman eras. Because that appeared in the Cerrillo del Tejar in 1965.

Roman presence probably comes from the name of the people, since it is assumed that the word Frigiliana seems to come from the union of Frexinius (Roman character about whom nothing is known) and -ana which together with the previous patronymic can mean village, farmhouse or place of Frexinius.
In the early years of the V century, the Roman Fort of Frigiliana was partially destroyed by vandals peoples.
It is likely that since that time, according to Pliny the Elder, extensive farming of Frigiliana was the vineyard. It has now been replaced by the cultivation of tropical fruits.

In 711, with the landing of Captain Tarik Berber in Gibraltar, the Muslim conquest of the peninsula began, leaving all this region under the power of Islam.
The Arabs introduced the transformation of agriculture building part of the hydraulic system of irrigation channels and pools that are still preserved. Introduced new crops such as sugar cane and variety of garden crops.
Finalizing the ninth century Moorish castle, which occupied an area of ​​about four thousand square meters, available water from the irrigation channel that reached through a small aqueduct that had previously built for military service in the fortress rose . This important defense was destroyed by the Christian armies in 1569, after his surrender to the troops of Luis de Requesens, in one of the last actions against the Moorish uprising, since it had concentrated escapees of the Alpujarra and the region Velez. The Moors were sent to Extremadura, Zamora, etc, and Frigiliana was repopulated by Old Christians from Granada and Valencia fundamentally. Castle is only some remains of its foundation and part of the access ramp.

In 1982 he was placed on the walls of the Moorish quarter twelve ceramic panels where the uprising of Muslims and the Battle of the Rock of Frigiliana is told.
