Andalucia Day 4 – tourism and argiculture in Frigiliana and Maro


The fourth day of our undergraduate field course based around Nerja saw us exploring the tensions between agriculture and tourist expansion in the villages of Maro and Frigiliana.  It was interesting to see how much change has taken place over the last few years, with considerable expansion in the amount of holiday accommodation, accompanied by some evidence of agricultural decline.  Yet, in part, the success of tourism is based very much on the landscapes created by a vibrant agricultural sector.
