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).

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