II Sierra de Bentomiz Conference
June 8 and 9
Frigiliana will host the II Sierra de Bentomiz Conference about the historical heritage of the Axarquía. This conference aims to disseminate and raise awareness about the value of the Historical Heritage of the villages of the Malaga region of La Axarquía, especially the small ones located in the interior.
These two days put the accent on a relevant fact of the history of Frigiliana: the battle of the Rock. In 2019, 450 years of this sad and violent episode marked the resolution of the coexistence denied with the Morisco community.
The II Sierra de Bentomiz Conference consists of a program with interesting activities that begins on Saturday, June 8, in the multipurpose room where, in the morning, there will be various conferences. In the afternoon, in El Apero, the actors of the official language school of Vélez-Málaga will represent Scenes of the Rebellion of the Moriscos in the Sierra de Bentomiz. After the performance, you can enjoy a guided tour of the archaeological museum and the heritage of Frigiliana.
The next day, Sunday June 9, there will be a climb to the Fort, a significant place in the historical events of the Battle of the Rock.
