During Semana Santa a total of 2,644 people visited the Nerja Tourist Information Office as reported by the councilor for Tourism, Bernardo Pozuelo. The busiest day was on Tuesday, with a total of 481 people calling into the office opposite the church on the Balcon de Europa.

Some of the most common questions asked by the visitors included the start times for the processions (both in Nerja and in Malaga and elsewhere), the opening hours for the Nerja Caves and Nerja Museum, as well as the usual information about beaches, bus times and whats on in the Cultural Centre.

More unusual enquiries included one tourist who wanted to know if Gibraltar closes at Easter and another who wanted to know if there are processions every Sunday in Nerja.

The Tourist Office also revealed that hotel occupancy in Nerja during the Easter period was 80.39%, according to data collected by the Office from local hoteliers. This rate is 10% higher than the average for the province of Malaga, where occupancy was 70%.
