Nerja CavesSunday the 12th of January marks the 55th anniversary of the discovery of the Nerja Caves. To commemorate the event a milestone will be unveiled at midday, next to the original entrance to the caves.

The Nerja caves as we know them today, were found in 1959, by five young men, who entered via a narrow sinkhole called “La Mina” one of the two natural entrances to the caves, which comes out in the Show Galleries – the section of the caves open to the public with a space of over 100,000 m3. The main entrance that visitors use today was made in 1960.

This year, during the winter months, guided tours (in Spanish) will be on offer at no extra charge to visitors.
