Geografic location
Nerja is situated in the east extreme of the district Axarquía, province of Málaga. In the heart of the city rised a fortification in the 9th century. Still remaining vestiges of their existence is the famous “balcony of Europe” with famous views over the ocean and the Málaga coast.

The province of Málaga is connected with Granada through Nerja and its city. Nerja is not only an important centrum of tourism of the east area of Málaga and its coast, but also presents a coast countryside, most attractive of the province. Where the foothills of the Sierra de Almijara reach the mediterranean sea in such a brave way, which is unusual for this area, building bumpy cliffs. This is the “Paraje Natural de los Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo” a natural landscape with lots of lonely bays, dificult to reach, but hidden of the insight and surely recommended for a visit.
