The Nerja Caves


The town of Nerja, situated on the eastern end of the Costa del Sol, offers a wealth of historical attractions including the Nerja Caves which were discovered by accident in 1959 by five local boys who were hunting bats. Skeletal remains and artefacts discovered in the caves date back to 25,000 B.C.

The Caves are a series of huge caverns which stretch underground for 5km and are home to the world’s largest stalagmite, a 32 metre high column measuring 13 metres by 7 metres at its base. Three galleries include the Show Gallery, the Upper Gallery and the New Gallery which include prehistoric cave paintings.
