The chocolate box village
Once the best-kept secret in Axarquia, the typical ‘white village’ of Frigiliana
seems well on the way to reaching international fame, as it has now been included on the list of the most charming and beautiful villages in the world.
The quiet, peaceful village began to make the news last year, when Ferrero Rocher chose it as one of the Spanish villages to compete to be the chocolate box village, featured in the popular brand’s 25th anniversary celebrations, coming a very close second.
Now the village, which had already achieved a well-deserved place on the list of the 44 most charming and beautiful villages in Spain,
has been added to the international version of the list as the Spanish association has been officially accepted into the ‘most charming and beautiful villages in the world’ federation, at its latest assembly in Quebec.
