Nerja is a beautiful seaside resort in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain, located on the country’s southern Mediterranean coast, about 50 km east of Málaga.
Nerja has a long history proven by the in paintings found in the caves, discovered close to the town in 1959, which could constitute one of the oldest rock art images in the history of humanity with 42,000 years old.
Undoubtedly the heart of the town and one of its main symbols is the Balcony of Europe (Balcón de Europa), a magnificent promenade, stretching along the edge of a towering cliff, which was once the location of a Moorish fortress.

Planning to visit Andalusia? Here are some pictures of Nerja from my walks through the town.
Nerja has more than 14 km/ 8 mi of coastline and a mild climate all year round. There are 10 beaches in the town center and another 6 on the outskirts. One of the main sources of its economy is agriculture, which highlights the cultivation of subtropical fruits such as banana, avocado, pomegranate, and so on.
