The enormous prehistoric Caves of Nerja boast extensive grottoes, archaeological remains and the world’s largest column, rising upwards for 32 meters (105 feet) central column.
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.
