Nerja

There are few places in Malaga that allow to contemplate the magnitude of the Mediterranean Sea as the Balcony of Europe, a huge viewpoint at the end of an avenue surrounded by palm trees in the center of Nerja. This is the preferred place to finish a mid afternoon walk when the sun begins to hide until the next day.Another recommended site visit is Acueducto del Águila. On the Maro river, in the XIX century, a sugar factory was launched to provide water supply. It has four floors of brick archways and in the center, there is a shrine with the inscription ""Pure and clean conception"". The Church of El Salvador, the church of Señora de las Angustias (Our Lady of Sorrows) and the parish of Señora de las Maravillas (Our Lady of Wonderland) are some of the most outstanding monuments of Nerja.

Nerja is one of the enclaves connecting the interior of the Axarquía region with the Mediterranean Sea. Its beaches are witnessed since the decades of expeditions of tourists from all corners of the world. Those who prefer to enjoy a beach day with the best services on foot of sand, find their place in the center of town, where dozens of restaurants await to try the local cuisine imbued with the flavours of the sea. Those seeking more tranquillity, meanwhile, can play hide and seek among the cliffs of Maro, a few meters from the center of Nerja, where you can discover small, winding wind protected coves and ideal for diving or kayaking.
