  • The caves of Nerja
    One of Nerja's main attractions are the world famous Maro Caves, located only 5km from the city. They are called Costa del Sol's natural cathedral, discovered in 1959. In Spain, numerous caves have been found, but none can match the Caves of Nerja. It is the most magnificent cave system the country has to offer. The caves are divided into different halls, which are joined, by stairs and stone floors.
    Four halls are now open to the public, and their combined length is almost 800m. Added to that is the knowledge that this place was inhabited for almost 25 000 years, and that it takes about 180 years to make a 1 cubic centimetre stalactite or stalagmite!
