Festival Frigiliana 3 Culturas - Frigiliana 3 Cultures Festival

One of the highlights of the local festival calendar is the Festival Frigiliana 3 Culturas which takes place at the end of August each year in the beautiful pueblo blanco of Frigiliana - perched on the hillside above Nerja. Many plan their holidays in and around Nerja to coordinate with this special event!

 



The festival for 2019 kicked off yesterday, Thursday the 22nd August 2019 and will run until Sunday the 25th August - culminating in a firework display on Sunday night at midnight. With activities throughout the day and well into the night, the festival is steeped in history, celebrating the three main cultures which have influenced Frigiliana - the Christians, Jews and Moors.

The small town comes alive with music, dance, storytellers, stalls selling goods relating to the three cultures and creations of local artisans. A highlight is the "Ruta de Tapas" - the "Tapas Trail" - pick up your free map at the information centre when you get to Frigiliana and follow the map to get stamped at each Tapas stop. If you manage to complete the route, you will get a free t-shirt!

As you can imagine, the festival drawers big crowds so plan your trip in advance and avoid driving - parking is a problem! Cheap buses are provided from Nerja and leave form the main bus station which run late into the night.

Virgen del Carmen: 16th July 2019

On the 16th of July, like many villages and cities around Spain, Nerja celebrates the Day of Saint Carmen, Widow of the Sea. This event is especially important considering Nerja was, and still is a Fisherman’s town and many people in Nerja still work as fishermen.

The celebration begins with the Mass at the Church of El Salvador at 6:00 pm, accompanied by the Coro de la Peña Nerjeña. At 7:00pm at the door of the Church you will be able to enjoy some live music and dance from the Municipal Folkloric Group of Choirs and Dances. After this, there will be a procession through the streets of the old town of Nerja with Saint Carmen being carried on the shoulders of the Brotherhood bearers, accompanied by the Band of Music towards La Torrecilla Beach.



The procession will pass by the following streets: Puerta del Mar, Pintada, La Cruz, Ánimas, Granada, Plaza Cavana (where there will be more music), El Barrio and Castilla Pérez, until it reaches Torrecilla Beach. Once it has reached the beach the crew will embark her into a traditional fishing boat which will navigate along the coastline of Nerja finishing in Calahonda Beach before the Saint is taken back to El Salvador Church. To finish up this event you will be able to enjoy some amazing fireworks.
