Mudéjar Street Style

…in the old part of Frigiliana inhabited by the Moors before and after the Reconquista.

Mudejar is a word used to describe the architectural style used by Muslim craftsmen working in Christian territory. The quarter is made up of steep cobbled alleyways winding past white houses.

Called a “white village”, Frigiliana, located in La Axarquia, the easternmost region of Malaga Province has been recognised as “Spain’s most beautiful and well-preserved village” on several occasions. Frigiliana is also referenced in the Irish song, ‘Lisdoonvarna’ by Christy Moore (click the link to listen).

One response to “Mudéjar Street Style”

  1. Quite simply a stunning array of colours especially the blue painted window frames and doors enhanced by the stark white of the brickwork.
