Nerja, originally Narixa, meaning abundant spring, is a coastal town about thrity miles east of Malaga on Spain's idyllic sun-drenched paradise, the Costa del Sol. Always popular among sun-seekers, the town also features several ancient and historical attractions beyond the beaches, bars and nightclubs. The recently discovered Nerja caves are largely unexplored so far, and may be one of the most extensive systems of potholes in Europe. The famous Balcony of Europe, a viewing point out over the sea so breathtaking that King Alfonso XII was moved to name it, shares space with the remains of two gun batteries destroyed in the Peninsular War. There is also the 17th century Hermitage of las Angustias, a 19th century aqueduct, and the 17th century Baroque Church of El Salvador. The population of about 22,000 includes around 2500 British ex-pats, which means there are many familiar shops and brands for UK visitors. The town has roughly 400 restaurants, bars and cafes, an annual bicycle parade and a very popular Mardi Gras carnival every year.
The Caves of Nerja - Formed over five million years ago, the Caves of Nerja are one of Spain's main tourist attractions. The explored section stretches for just over three miles, and was re-discovered by accident in 1959. There is easy access for visitors down to the show galleries that tell the story of the ancient inhabitants and the cave's original formation. There is evidence that the caves where inhabited from 25,000 BC right up until the Bronze Age, periodically by humans and cave hyenas, as demonstrated by found bones and cave paintings. The remains of one of the human inhabitants are on display in the gallery. Amazingly, music concerts are held in one of the chambers, which forms a natural amphitheatre, and cave paintings that date from the Neanderthal period - 50,000-300,000 years ago - may have been found in 2012. As said, much of the cave system is yet to be explored, but they are thought to stretch for many miles, back to the mountains of Granada.
