We just stepped into the wrong alley and 'voila'~! We found this place. Being a small archeological museum, they offer the best view-point in town. Actually, they say this town is the most beautiful place in Spain and I became to agree. You can enjoy a perfect view of Frigiliana from this place.

Curious little stop off with some history and artefacts on Frigillina. But felt there could be so much more, the area was so sparse and there was no sign directing you to the tower with a great view (we stepped onto scaffolding ourselves and walked up some stairs not knowing what was up there). The man on the desk was... More

Beautiful building. Has some.interesting artefacts, worth visiting as will only take 20 minutes to look around, especially if you want to escape the heat of the sun! Not a huge amount of artefacts, but what is there is well done.

If you have time this Museum is worth visiting for around 20 to 30 mins. As others have said although small, there were interesting historical exhibits of items found in the region centuries BC. There was also a lovely library upstairs which would offer nice respite from any crowds or the sun. Note it's closed 2 to 4 pm.

The visit to the museum inside the tourist office was interested because we learnt so much about the history of the Romans, and you get some fantastic information about the town of Frigilana inc. the market as well. It´s worth a quick visit though.

Firstly the building itself, beautifully and faithfully restored from the ruins. It's called La Casa del Apero,and it was originally the building that housed, maintained and repaired the agricultural equipment for the nearby palace of the Dukes of Marique, now El Ingenious, the last functioning molasses factory in Europe. From the patio you can climb to two miradors with impressive... More

A small but perfectly formed local museum, with a modern, attractive layout in a beautiful old building. Some very interesting prehistoric finds from the nearby caves. Will probably only take you around 20min to look around, but it is FREE. Also doubles as the information centre, so we picked up some maps, directions to el castillo and lunch ideas.
