Nerja Caves and Frigiliana

Approx 30 min from Almuñécar these are among Europe's mostNerja Caves spectacular caves open to the public.  They contain the worlds largest column, which is in a cavern over 30m high and is verified by the Guiness Book of Records.  The entire network is very well presented, and you are able to enter and pass through a well designed "one way" system at your own pace, which a state of the art digital audio visual guide.  Afterwards, a short drive  brings us to the award winning village of Frigiliana which is one of the best preserved Moorish Pueblo Blancos, or White Villages.  Here we explore the old town with it's lovely craft and leather shops, stopping to sample the local wine.

Typical Nerja Caves & Frigiliana Itinerary

On arrival at the caves you will be issued personal audio guide systems, so you are free to explore the sights at your own pace, rather than being tied to a large gFrigilianaroup. The caves are so vast (about a third of the total 4.4km discovered to date is open to the public) that every July a festival is held of flamenco, orchestral music and dance, which has attracted names such as Montserrat Caballe, Jose Carrera and Kiri Te Kanawa.

A short drive then brings us to the Pueblo Blanco (or White Village) of Frigiliana with its maze of cobbled streets lined with whitewashed cottages and houses.  Here we explore the old town with it's lovely craft and leather shops, stopping to sample the local wine.  Plenty of time to take in the views and atmosphere in this delightful village.  The Casa de Cultura houses a library as well as a town museum with exhibits from prehistoric times.  The hill top behind the village offers stunning views over the town and surroundings sierras towards the sea in the distance.  Frigiliana
