Andalucia Diary – Seasonal Travel Notes

El Acebuchal

El Acebuchal – hidden hamlet

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.

  El Frigiliana

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.
