Overview
More
With a volume of more than 100,000 m3 and a surface covering 9,371 m2, the Tourist galleries represent approximately one-third of the cave. The cave has been used as a habitat, a burial site and for cultural expression. There are remnants testifying to the passage of hunters, gatherers and fishermen from more than 30,000 years ago. The General Visit starts with the screening of a audiovisual presentation in which you will be able to see spectacular details of the cave (10 minutes). Then an audio-guided visit through the different chambers of the Cave, in a pleasant walk of about 45 minutes where you will discover the many secrets the grotto keeps (audio-guided in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Russian). When the cave closes its doors, a small group of privileged people can enter the mystery of the underworld to enjoy the magnificence and beauty of the cave, and discover its secrets.

The caves are not far from Nerja, in fact I walked, but you can get the Alsa bus or the little tourist train does the trip. It's, I think, very reasonably priced at €10, for an adult. An audio guide, in your language, is included...More

Pleasantly surprised by the size and enormity of the cave of Nerja. Really really worth a visit if you are in this part of Spain. Discovered by 5 Spanish boys in the 50s and remains of Neanderthals have been found. It makes you wonder and...More

I had never heard about the "Cueva de Nerja"; certainly a well-kept secret. It certainly matches in grandeur many other caves known to tourists in many other European locations.
