Cueva de Nerja

Cueva de Nerja (Caves of Nerja), Nerja, Province of Málaga, Andalusia, Spain.

 

Cueva de Nerja is a series of dripstone caves close to the village Maro near the Andalusian town Nerja. It is one of the major tourist attractions of Spain.

The caves were discovered by playing children in 1959. Today about a quarter of the 4823 m long cave system is open to the public. One of the halls, forming a natural amphitheatre, is used for concerts.

Inside the cave archaeologists found bones, lithic tools, clay pottery and paintings from the Upper Paleolithic, and ceramics, marble rings, grain leftovers and human bones from the Neolithic.
