Cave
Discover prehistoric life in the underground world of Fundación Cueva de Nerja. Stretching almost 5 km (3.1 mi), the caves are a long series of caverns comprised of eight rooms and two main entrances. Tour the main lobby to see human artifacts and remains found in the caves. In the Elephant Tusk chamber, admire the impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations. Attend a concert in the 600-seat natural amphitheater of the Cascade room. The caves are accessible by car or bus, but a relaxing walk along the coast is another way to return to Nerja.

  • Buy tickets the day before you plan to visit the cave at the museum in Nerja as visitor nubers are limited. The cave is stunning and the preceding audio-visual informative. The free audio guide is als...  more »
  • Highly recommended if you are on holiday near Nerja. Advisable to pre-book tickets to buy online, you can only pay cash on the spot. You also need an hour to visit the caves choose what makes you in small groups to enter, which is very good. Very fun to do with kids.

  • I visit several caves, it particularly beautiful. Good price for a visit with audio guide, huge site, parking nearby free of places where to walk next to the caves. The site is well accessible, not too bright and not too many people at the same time. Time fixed at very specific times. To see

  • Brilliant cave system. Much better than chedder gorge or wooky hole in the uk.
  • Pretty big cave, but not that spectacular. I've seen better ones. Nevertheless, it's a must see once. The duration of the visit is around 15-20 minutes, and it costs 10€ if I remember correctly. Free parking.
  • Long queue to get the tickets during the high season, it is recommended to book online in advance. The visit is interesting but not much of the cave is actually accessible to the public. It is also quite impossible to see the famous prehistoric paintings.
  • Have been to a few caves this was certainly wasn't "up there". Cheap so ok to visit if passing but certainly no day trip. Got the tickets, I was aware there was a pre audio then a tour but no instruction as to when or where, went in thought there might be a meet place inside where your are stopped and they give the speech...nothing. Quick to walk around, the lighting was nothing special could have put some colour in there in some places always looks good. Can change the mood. Overall not very impressed
  • A very disappointing visit. We were not told that there were guided visits with an audio guide in English. We could find no information either telling us this. I would have expected to be offered this is aat the ticket office but no they just took our 20 euros. I was also refused a complaints form which I understand is required by law to be available in Spain. There is no information once you are in the caves in any language! Just pay your money and put up with it!
