"Its streets crowned the hill, as if rocked by the sea that painted that green background full of white polka dots an intense blue. The calm of its light accompanied us as we ascended its steep streets, leaving behind the old sugar mill, once the axis of local commerce. ... "<br><br>In this experience, he will take us through the streets of Nerja and its famous Balcón de Europa, as well as Frigiliana. This, known as the "Villa of the Three Cultures", has a preferential place in the list of The Most Beautiful Towns of the Iberian Peninsula.<br><br>Today it offers us unique images, almost transporting us in space and time. Characteristics that make it an ideal destination not only for those who want to enjoy a pleasant visual walk through history and legends, but it is almost a mandatory stop for photography lovers.<br><br>Likewise, we will direct our gaze to El Acebuchal, a town abandoned in times of the Civil War and today rebuilt.

The Nerja Caves have large amounts of stalagmites and stalactites. Not only does it have an extensive cave system, but it is home of the world’s largest column. A column is formed by the merging of a stalagmite and a stalactite. It is measured as 32m in height and 13.7m at its base. It has held this Guinness World Record since 1989.

Booked online as advised and found everyone had booked the same time. A real experience in the caves but spoiled by the mask wearing requirement as glasses were misting up and being in a low light environment spoiled the views. Lots of stairs so be warned. Would wait until post c19 if you wear glasses!

Don’t get me wrong, the cave itself is a gem of nature however if you visited some other caves previously you will be disappointed especially for the price. Cave is quite small, it takes about 20-30min to sloooowly walk it around. At the entrance you’ll get audio guide and if you’ll stop to listen to it, only then the visit of cave will take about 1hr. I also wish someone at the entrance would tell me and my partner to look for the numbers on the lights in order to play the specific part of the audio guide however no one did and we figured it out halfway through the visit. Another thing is that we saw lot of wall paintings in the advertisements however in the cave you will not see any, as they are either in the museum, destroyed or not lit at all. I visited many caves of the similar size as this one however the prices were always at least half cheaper than this one.

First of all: thanks for your comments and suggestions. We consider them very useful for the intention of constantly improvement of the experience of our visitors. Answering you: All the caves in the world are magnificent, of course, and truly incomparable. -Nerja Cave has been declared Historic Interest Cultural. It needs maintenance and care, the price responds to the uniqueness it offers, it is unique in the world. Practically all of our collection goes to the maintenance, management, conservation, adaptation and promotion of this natural heritage. -Nerja Cave -declared as a site of Cultural Interest in 2005- is rich in stalactites, columns and other formations of great beauty that you cannot see anywhere else. All of them are framed in rock vaults of overwhelming dimensions. With a Guiness Record column! -The tour for visits in Nerja Cave has an estimated duration of about 50 minutes, never less. It is the time that has been established as adequate to complete the entire itinerary, also allowing you to stop to contemplate the main points of interest of the cavity. The entire route of the cave is telematized and measured in real time, we have a quality system that, continuously and permanently, controls, parameterizes and measures the visitor flows and the duration of each visit. We also inform you that in the Special Visits the travel time is longer. -The audio guide tells you to look for the numbers. -You can´t visit the cave art, for conservation reasons, we are sorry. Thanks and Best Regards.

Very interesting, large and spacious cave near Nerja. The visit lasts about an hour, passing through several impressive halls that are well lit. Ancient cave paintings have also been found here, but they are not accessible to tourists. The only drawback is, in my opinion, the excessive precautions against Covid19.
