Fundación Cueva de Nerja, Nerja

4.3
#1 of 95 in Nature in Andalucia
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.

  • When I planned to go there, I thought that nothing will impress me because I had seen couple of more caves in other countries before that. And you know, I was impressed :) It was really interesting...  more »
  • We thoroughly enjoyed this amazing site. There were only eight of us on the tour that we took and our guide was excellent. He was enthusiastic and was very knowledgeable about the geology and history....  more »

  • Definitely recommend this place. We managed to get the free EU citizen entries for the 9:30am slot. Had to book well in advance to get the limited free slots and be on time. Being so early had the benefits of less crowd as the first slots start usually around 9:50. Would recommend buying audio guide. Also good to combine this trip with the nearby popular beach where you can do kayaking too.
  • Such a great place to visit and discover. One will be amazed at the enormity of the underground structure and the caves themselves. It’s an adventure for the whole family. Be aware that it’s a steep climb down and back up. The guide was very informative and friendly. They kept us moving and exploring as we walked in awe. Visit for the history and adventure. You won’t regret it.
  • Do not miss out on this experience! I went with my three boys (7, 6 and 3) and they loved it just as much as I did. Do yourself a favour and visit these beautiful caves.
  • The place was stunning. Tickets are available as you walk-in, there is also a machine where you can purchase your ticket at discounted price. If you're anywhere nearby I would recommend visiting. Late entrances are better as there is less people in. There's loads of steps so definitely not for babies/prams.
  • Interesting visit. Definitely a worthwhile visit if you are near Nerja. An audio guide is included in the price, which is informative and available in several languages. We didn't book tickets in advance, we just showed up and got tickets at the time which was easy. Not sure if it is better to book in advance but we didn't have any problems at all.
