Nerja, Andalusia, Spain (Andalucía, España)

Nerja is small city on the country’s southern Mediterranean coast, about 50 km east of Málaga. The city has about 20 000 inhabitants, which triple during high season. Nerja has a long history, started in modern time with the Romans, but in the nearby caves there has been found evidence of  humans as far back as 25 000 BC.

In the middle of the city’s coastline there is the Balcón de Europa, a viewpoint built on the remains of an old gun battery.

If you don’t plan to visit Nerja, I guess its easy to just drive by, as the main road goes mostly on the upper side of the city.  Unfortunately there was not enough time to explore the city as we came in the evening and went up to the Caves the next morning, but definitely a city we would like to visit again!

Recommend visitors to park at the big open parking more or less in the middle of the city, as several streets closer to the beaches as closed for traffic.

Have you been to Nerja? What are your thoughts and impression?
