The special charm of visiting Nerja and Frigiliana
The historic centre of Nerja, known as the “Balcony of Europe”, is built on the remains of a castle. The view from here is simply spectacular. In front of us, the mountains and the blue sea are one, it is a 100% Mediterranean landscape. Nearby is the 17th-century church of El Salvador, surrounded by typical shops offering local handicrafts and local produce: Mangoes, papayas, custard apples, avocados, sultanas, sweet wine, olive oil or sugar cane honey. You can´t leave Nerja without a visit to the Nerja cave, considered one of the largest caves in Europe. It is formed by a series of karstic cavities whose origin dates back to 5 million years ago. The water has turned these caves into an enchanted stone palace with hundreds of amazing stalactites and stalagmites. Only 5 kms from the coast of Nerja is located one of the most beautiful villages in Spain: Frigiliana. Its Moorish quarter is considered one of the best-preserved. As we walk around, we will discover its typical streets decorated with flowerpots and painted doors. The numerous views and the high part of this white village is a fantastic opportunity to photograph its narrow streets, the tiled roofs and terraces, the gentle hills all beyond the blue of the Mediterranean.
