We spent the night in Frigiliana with our friends and today we went for a short walk to the hidden hamlet of El Acebuchal. It’s in the natural park, so surrounded by pine forests.
This seventeenth century community was abandoned in 1949, when during the Civil War, the area was controlled for its strategic position on a route through the mountains.
Since 1998 it has been undergoing restoration and the little basic rural houses are available for rent.
There is s small local bar abd restaurant with terrace overlooking the hamlet and tree clad mountain serving hearty, home baked food, and home made bread.
We then headed down to the beautiful cove at Maro – it was 23 degrees!
