Entering the cave, you’ll see dramatically lit stalactites and stalagmites that look like organ pipes, and evidence of human habitation stretching back 25,000 years to the Paleolithic era. Galleries display artifacts, paintings and skeletons unearthed since the caves were discovered in 1959.
The underground cavern stretches for several kilometers and has the feeling of a lofty cathedral. The natural amphitheater is a memorable venue for the concerts and classical music performances held here over the year. If you’re visiting in July, you might be lucky enough to catch the annual flamenco festival.

Doing what: Tropical Coast and Caves of Nerja Day Trip from Granada
The Tropical Coast and Caves of Nerja was an excellent trip. Included in the trip were visits to Salobrena and Nerja, both of which were attractive.
The tour guide was very helpful and pleasant and also knew the detail of the places very well.
We had opportunity to take a number of photographs, which will remind us of the trip.
We found it very useful to be picked up at our hotel by the tour guide.
We would suggest that, due to the number of occasions steep climbs were involves, that this is advertised as part of the description of the trip, so that customers may take this into consideration when choosing.
Buses run regularly to the caves from Nerja, every day except Sunday. If you’re driving, the caves are just off the N340 Highway.
