Nerja is a charming little town located a 20 km drive from Caleta de Velez and 50 east of Malaga. The city's main attraction is the beautiful and palm-filled cliffed Balcon de Europa from which there is an outstanding view of the Mediterranean Sea. The city has approx. 20,000 inhabitants, but in summer time many more, due to tourists. Many of these are northerners, who have moved more or less permanently. Everywhere in the city center you will find small shops, bars and bodegas and close to the Balcon de Europa is the church of El Salvador from the last part of the 17th century, which is definitely worth a visit.
A short distance from the city center is another experience that is definitely worth a visit. The caves in Nerja are an incredibly and unique experience and definitely something to experience if you visit Nerja.
Is one of the many beautiful white villages in the mountains along the Costa del Sol. The city is a bit of a tourist attraction because it has retained so much of its original Arabic character. The streets of Frigiliana are still as in the 16th century when the city formed the framework of a thriving Arab culture. It is recommended that you have no walking issues as the streets are steep and narrow.
100 km from Malaga you will find several well-known mountain villages in the area of Ronda. The city is surrounded by lush river valleys and is located on a rocky plateau - it is one of the most beautiful and most visited cities in Spain.
