Latest News Thursday 27th of June 2013

Nerja Calle Animas FincaNerja’s councillor for Urban Planning, Nieves Atencia, is hoping to turn a building on Calle Animas in the centre of Nerja, into a new social-cultural centre. The building and grounds, which are over 600m2 in size is located at numbers 15 and 15-A on this narrow street just off Calle Pintada and used to be an oil mill and later a car workshop.
