Touristic Tour
Visit to The Caves of Nerja
The caves are situated about 4 km from Nerja. Discovered in 1959, they are among the most beautiful caves in Europe due to the stalactite and stalagmite formations present there.
It was inhabited by man 30,000 years ago and there are still cave paintings from the Superior Palaeolithic.
They were first inhabited by man 30,000 years ago, although latest research could increase the period of occupation to the Neanderthal era. There are cave paintings from the Superior Palaeolithic but some of them could be even older as they are related to the Neanderthal man.
Once a year, in July, the Nerja Caves Music and Dance Festival is celebrated here, one of the most important cultural venues on the Costa del Sol.

Visit to Frigiliana
This tiny village, winner of several prizes for its beauty, it is situated 300 metres above sea level and It is one of the so-called “white villages” of the region of Axarquia.
It is famous for its characteristic wine, made with sultanas (sun-dried grapes), cane sugar and molasses which are produced by “Ingenio”, the only sugar factory that still manufactures this product in Europe.
Furthermore, the historical significance of the village in the 16th Century is noteworthy for when the Moorish rebellions converted the village into the site of one of the principal battles between the misunderstood Moors and the troops of King Philip II: the battle of the Rock in Frigiliana. A series of tiles tell the story for visitors to the village.
