Grandstand Seating Removed From Nerja Caves

Latest News Monday 14th of October 2013

Nerja CavesThe old worn out grandstand seating, that have been a feature of the Nerja caves since being installed in the 1970s in the sala del Ballet have finally been removed. The work has taken place in stages, starting in July and was completed last week, with a total of 20 tonnes of metal having been taken out of the caves.

The 500 seats were installed in the 1970s and were used by audiences during the Nerja Caves Festival and other events. The grandstands were built with little regard for their archeological impact and their removal returns the caves to their original splendour.

The removal work was carried out from July onwards to take advantage of the natural air flow, which at this time of year, ventilates the caves, reducing the effect of the work on the interior. Special protective panels were used to protect the vulnerable parts of the caves, including the cave paintings and rock formations. The metal stands had corroded badly in the moist underground air and the decision was taken to remove them completely.
