Where to go
Not too far from Nerja Centre, you will find the caves of Nerja (Cueves de Nerja) which is a series of underground caverns comprising of towering columns, stalagmites as well as stalactites.
Inside the caves, you will get to see the widest column in the world (the column at the Centre of the Cataclysm Hall/ Sala del Cataclismo). It measures 32 metres in height.
Also, there’s the Karstic cavities where you could also get to have a close view of the over 20,000 years old Paleolithic wall paintings.
You can also visit the restaurant connected to the caves where you won’t just enjoy great food but striking views. Other attractions within this cave include a museum and a gift shop. You willbe luckier if you visit the caves in July because it’s the time when the Flamenco festival takes place and is hosted inside them.
If you choose to go beyond the Nerja municipality territory, you will encounter a rich Andalucian countryside. Beyond the hills, you will encounter well maintained and striking white villages. Frigiliana is the most famous for the reason that it allows one to enjoy great views of the sea and the resort town itself.
The local bus to Frigiliana costs just 1 euro, so don’t miss the trip.
