There's not one single street in Mijas that doesn't have a little shop where they sell souvenirs you can take home. In La Alacena I was struck by the white facade decorated like a typical village house without the "stalls" that often hinder passersby, without the silly polka dot aprons that you always see in souvenir shops, or the gypsy dolls, bulls with flags or ceramic donkey-taxis. Those things are usually photographed by the Japanese, but they don't pain a real picture of Andalusia. And the prices there aren't exorbitant or abusive, I'll leave you a record of the site here.
If you want a souvenir from your visit to Frigiliana, there is a craft store where you can find all kinds of local crafts, the Azahar Store. The facade alone is remarkable, among the whiteness of the street's facades, and it's lavishly decorated with samples of what you can find inside. Besides the handcrafted ceramics from the area, the "flagship" are the throws, which are handmade blankets made of cotton thread.
The wine of Frigiliana is well known, not only in Axarquia, so if you're in the area, you shouldn't leave without trying some. I already had my eye on this store while I was walking along Calle Real, so I walked around to see what products the store offered. The store assistant kindly gave us the dry and the sweet wine to try. Both were delicious, but we decided on the sweet. As the bottle was being prepared, I was poking around the little shop, and besides wine, you can buy honey, local products, lip balm made from avocado and many more. And the best were the normal prices, not tourist prices.
Find curious things that you crave and to keep memories. A variety of magnets at a great price, curious candles, dolphins, interesting ornamental accessories. Almost everything is named "Port of the Duchess," for the kids there are all kinds of beach toys, pens/pendants with your name in addition to its meaning, jewelry of all kinds, beautiful postal stamps to send (the funny thing is that there is no stamp is for Europe to Spain), there is virtually something for every overseas tourist English, German, etc. You are in fact in a restaurant facing the harbor and yachts that has snacks, drinks and so on. When you reach the counter there is a curious, very flexible ring of flowers and colors that is made of leather and I bought some. Besides the Duchess port is not to be missed, walk through it.
In the Calle Real de Frigiliana, there's a point where the scent of flowers mixes with leather, and that place is called El Boliche, a shop that sells ready-made suits made of Ubrique leather where you can find everything from purses, albarcas, belts, bags, carpets and even saddles. The leather is of very good quality and they have a completely handmade manufacturing process. You can even make your own. El Boliche is still one of the few places where they put quality above everything else and it shows in the length and it really shows in their pieces. This shop is something to keep in mind if you want to get a souvenir of your visit to Frigiliana that's different from the typical souvenirs.
In Plaza del Ingenio right next to the old Nuestra Señora del Carmen molasses factory and the former palace of the Manrique de Lara, is where you'll find the largest Frigiliana Craft Store, and it's located in what was once the chapel of the Counts of Frigiliana. Inside you can find all sorts of pottery, all of which was made and hand-painted by Andalusian craftsmen. You can also buy typical products such as molasses, famous Frigiliana wine, olive oil, raisins, figs, local spirits, thyme bee's honey, etc. Or you can also buy beauty products that were made by artisans using natural raw materials.
After having travelled the Callejón del Alfarero and having seen the birthplace of Liborio Apolinario Acosta de la Torre, we discovered, just below it, this decorated house with all kinds of crafts. We would have liked to buy lots of things, but our baggage was already too much. The house in question is at the end of the alley and the two facades are covered with metal butterflies and trees made with exquisite finesse, lizards, tiles, metal flowers, small screens, richly framed wall clocks, bronze or copper lanterns, Angels callers, and small tables. There were also elephants, foxes, striking crosses, racks, rugs, fountains, and all kinds of gifts. Crafts are another thing that characterizes this beautiful region. It's in the alley, for more information contact the Tourist Office of Frigiliana.
It's been a great experience. The studio was immense and decorated in very good taste: not too heavy nor too bland. They give wonderful care and attention- it was time for something like that around here! Thanks to the people at ART-TATTOO in Estepona for this fantastic experience.i am sure to visit again.
