The magnificent Nerja Caves – Cuevas de Nerja – are a series of huge caverns stretching for almost five kilometres and home to the world’s largest stalagmite, a 32 metre high column measuring 13 metres by 7 metres at its base.
There are three Galleries – Show Gallery, Upper Gallery and New Gallery – with each gallery containing a number of Halls.
The Upper Gallery and New Gallery contain many of the prehistoric cave paintings, but tourist access to these areas is limited to special groups.
The Nerja Caves also offers a special experience for visitors, with groups of up to fifty people able to enjoy a guided tour of the caverns in the company of actor Miguel Joven, famous for his role as ‘Tito’ in the popular TV series Verano Azul.
These special visits will be daily at 14:00 and 18:30. As well as learning all about the caves and its early inhabitants, visitors will be treated to a series of anecdotes from Miguel Joven relating to the filming of one of the episodes of Verano Azul which took place inside the caves.
There is also the possibility of combining a visit to the caves with a lunch or dinner at the Nerja Caves Restaurant. These special guided visits can be booked online via the Nerja Caves website: www.cuevadenerja.es
