Nerja Caves


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

There are three Galleries – Show Gallery, Upper Gallery and New Gallery – with each gallery containing a number of Halls.

The Upper Gallery and New Gallery contain many of the prehistoric cave paintings, but tourist access to these areas is limited to special groups. The Caves are large and truly magnificent. They are so large that concerts are regularly held there. The Caves of Nerja are not far from the town and we have Nerja villas and apartments within easy walking distance.

The balcony came to earn its present name; King Alfonso XII visited Nerja to see for himself the destruction of the earthquake that took place on Christmas day 1884, and was taken aback by the fantastic views and the beauty of the place. He stood on the cliff where the balcony is now and said “this is the Balcony of Europe”
