Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Malaga / Costa del Sol / Nerja / Fundación Cueva de Nerja
Discover prehistoric life in the underground world of Fundación Cueva de Nerja. Stretching almost 5 km (3.1 mi), the caves are a long series of caverns comprised of eight rooms and two main entrances. Tour the main lobby to see human artifacts and remains found in the caves. In the Elephant Tusk chamber, admire the impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations. Attend a concert in the 600-seat natural amphitheater of the Cascade room. The caves are accessible by car or bus, but a relaxing walk along the coast is another way to return to Nerja.

I don't think that it can be compared with nothing because few things there are in life that visually can buy this. It is a marvel. Totally recommended.
We had been under the impression from the tourist information leaflets that we would be seeing prehistoric cave paintings. Instead it was caves, albeit with some very good stalactites and stalagmites.... more »
Really great place to visit. Probably the best caves I've been to. Helpful and informative audio guide. You do need to book in advance, this is an all year round busy attraction. Good food available in the on site restaurant at reasonable prices and a good view of the coast. Would happily recommend for all ages 😉
An interesting activity to do in Nerja. The caves are impressive! The cost is 13 euros and it takes about 45 minutes. It is definitely worth it. The audioguide is useful and you can choose from many languages. You also have access to the botanical garden. Definitely a must if you are visiting Nerja.
