I came across Frias on Instagram and thought it would fit into our journey. What I didn't know is that my navigation would send us over sandy paths with a 12% incline, where cattle and donkeys walked along the road, and people were hunting boars!...More

Good place to visit. Less than a kilometer hick from the parking area. Must pay to enter the interiors. The outside is well maintained and clean.

Frias is listed as on of the prettiest villages in Spain. We entirely agreed, having visited 3 of the other 'prettiest villages', half of our group thought that Frias was THE BEST. The streets are narrow, medieval, largely restored and really very interesting. We took...More

Frias is a very small medieval village northern Burgos. All the small houses and well restored castle walls and towers makes of it one of the most beautiful Spanish villages they say, and they're right. Select a sunny day and also enjoy a swim on...More
