Museo Arqueológico de Frigiliana

The Archaeological Museum of Frigliana is closed (July 2021) while works are underway to move it into a new building.

The Archaeological Museum of Frigliana (MAF) was located in the building called 'Apero' which dates back to the 17th-century and was once a mule driven suger mill. The house has been restored and contains a library, exhibition rooms and the Tourist office.

Many pieces were discovered in nearby archaeological sites such as the Cueva de los Murciélagos, the Higuerón river, the Cerrillo de las Sombras, the Lízar Castle, the Peñón del Fuerte.

Notable pieces in the collection are a skull of a child dating between 4.000 and 5.000 years BC, amphoras, remains found in the area from the battle of the Peñón de Frigiliana, coins from the Caliphate era.
