Nerja is known for its spectacular Balcony of Europe, which boasts stunning views over the coastline and is situated high on a rocky promontory. This popular Nerja attraction was formerly a fortress designed to keep out British pirates.
Once a small fishing village situated just 50km east of Malaga, Nerja is home to miles of stunning beaches and historical attractions
The historic Nerja Caves are one of the most-visited sites in Spain and were discovered accidentally in 1959 by a group of local boys who were bat-hunting. The large cavern they came across was spectacular and contained skeletons, ceramics and artistic images created by Neanderthal man.
Home to the world’s largest column (formed by the merging of a stalagmite and a stalactite) at 32m in height, the Nerja Caves also host evening concerts in summer which attract international stars.
Once you arrive in Nerja, your guide will walk you to the famous Balcony of Europe. From there you will have at least 2 hours and 30 minutes to enjoy your free time in this beautiful seaside town.
The guide will advise the time and meeting point for those who have bought tickets for the famous Nerja Caves (optional visit). Those who have decided not to visit the caves can enjoy more free time in the town to sunbathe, eat, shop or relax and watch the world go by.
After visiting Nerja, the coach will take you to the picturesque village of Frigiliana, stopping on route to see the Eagle Aqueduct, which was built between 1879 and 1880 to aid the industrial revolution.
Frigiliana is one of the most beautiful white villages in the whole province of Malaga. With its Moorish roots, white-washed houses, that wind their way around the hillside and ornate cobbled streets, it is not hard to see why Frigiliana wins so many awards.
The village is just 6km north of Nerja and boasts amazing views of the surrounding countryside down to the coast and the Mediterranean. Explore the beautifully-preserved Morisco-Mudejar in the upper section of the village, where wandering the streets will transport you back in time to a land of Moorish kingdoms.
You will have at least one hour of free time to enjoy lunch or tapas with a view, or perhaps follow the 12 ceramic plaques in the old part of the village which tell the story of the Moorish uprising and the last battles that were fought in the area.
