The Nerja Caves

Good afternoon all! I am a driver of who has had the opportunity to take some usual clients from Sweden to one of Nerja’s most popular and spectacular historical sites. A trip to Andalucia would not be complete without a visit to the Nerja Caves.

The Nerja Caves

On January 12th 1959, five local boys from the village of Maro decided to go hunting for bats and headed for a pothole known locally as ‘La Mina’ where they spent the night watching a great number of these creatures exiting through the hole in the rocks.

The boys decided to return the next day, taking with them some tools to dislodge a couple of stalagtites in the entrance. Once inside, they found themselves able to descend to a huge cavern where they discovered a number of skeletons next to some ceramic pottery.

Excited by their find, they went back to tell their family, friends and teachers but it wasn’t until the cave was visited by a medical expert and a photographer that the true extent of their discovery became apparent.

Romería de San Isidro in Nerja

Good afternoon everyone! I am a worker of SOLTRANSFER and I would like to tell you something. Now that spring has arrived and there is nice weather in Nerja, we are receiving many bookings.  Many clients know that in May we have a very popular celebration called »San Isidro» and, of course, they don’t want to miss this wonderful party.

The procession in San Isidro








San Isidro takes place on 15th May. It is the patron saint of farmers, and many villages celebrate it with processions through the streets. The statue of San Isidro resides at the Nerja Caves, near Maro. However, for San Isidro celebrations, the statue is brought to the town just before the event and then makes its ceremonial journey back to its home in the company of thousands of ‘pilgrims’.
