    Up to the Collado de los Apretaderos The first 5 kilometres consists of forest tracks in good condition, leading exclusively downhill. Almost from the beginning the track takes you...

  • This vantage point is on the hill that climbes to the castle, more precisely, on a curve before coming to it. Spectacular view from this spot takes in the village of Frigiliana and the surroundings....

Though the best-preserved remains are those of the Arabic period, Frigiliana is also home to traces of prehistoric human settlements, specifically dating back to the late Neolithic period (around 3,000 B.C.). Remains of Phoenician and Roman settlements are also to be found here.

There are a number of sites containing archaeological remains from several different periods. The Mudéjar Quarter is home to a mushroom-shaped menhir dating back to 1500 B.C. while the Phoenician necropolis at Cerrillo de las Sombras dates back to 800 B.C.

The mediaeval period is represented by the IX-century Arabic castle which was destroyed after the Battle of El Peñón. Some ruins of the walls and foundations still remain.

The archaeological remains are on display in the Sala de Exposiciones.
