The hilltop village of Frigiliana
It was market day in Frigiliana and the town was heaving.  There have been significant changes here too - they have built a massive covered car park below the market area which keeps much of the traffic out of the older part of the town - probably much to the relief of the locals.  The rooftop restaurant we ate at years ago is still there, but now only serves food in the evenings, so we missed out on lunch with a stunning view across the valley.

Aas with Nerja, there have been many improvements to the town, some of which have allowed it to keep its character, some of which have detracted  from it somewhat, but the views into the mountains and across the valley to the west are still there.

There has been a tremendous amount of building - mainly houses and apartments - in Spain in the last decade and housing estates have sprung up al over the place - which is good when they're complete, but there are many which have been abandoned part-way through construction, partly due to the recession and partly due to the value of the Euro against Sterling which has forced many ex-pats to give up their homes there.

They're not cheap - at least the advertised prices are still high, though I'm sure you could strike a bargain - and there are hundreds for sale and rent.
