Hola Nerja!!!

Nerja - Spain - LexSeries

Such a beautiful place that has kept its traditional charm, with whitewashed houses, narrow streets and all the modern amenities you could wish for 

So what can you do if you are here just for a few days?

I’ll give you 5 options – just read below:

1. Balcón de Europa​

Balcón de Europa is that beautiful viewpoint located in the center of Nerja. 

One of the most famous places in Andalusia, is  situated on a rocky promontory and was formerly a fortress designed to keep out British pirates and privateers.

An idyllic place to take a panoramic photo of the Mediterranean Sea.

2. Cueva de Nerja​


Nerja Caves, are one of Spain’s most popular and spectacular historical sites.

The amazing Nerja Caves – Cuevas de Nerja – are a series of huge caverns stretching for almost five kilometres and it’s home to the world’s largest stalagmite -> a 32 metre high column measuring 13 metres by 7 metres at its base.

The Nerja Caves were officially inaugurated on June 12th 1960 and opened to the public.

3.Church of El Salvador​

The Church of El Salvador along with the Balcón de Europa plays a central part in many of the yearly events that take place in Nerja.

The church is a lovely island of serenity in center of Nerja and following renovation work in 1997 is well worth popping into to take a quick look.

During Weekend yo can expect to see some weddings and loud happy people!
