The Costa del Sol region
Nerja - Jewel of the South
Originally a fishing village, Nerja is a charming Spanish town perched on the Mediterranean against the spectacular backdrop of the mountains, 32 miles from Malaga airport.
Wander through the magical winding streets and browse amongst the boutiques until you come to the palm-lined Balcon de Europa (balcony of Europe) jutting out over the Mediterranean, with sweeping views of the coastline and mountains on either side. Relax at one of the open-air cafés on the square, or stroll along the beach and sample the local seafood and a glass of sangria at one of the beach-front restaurants.
In the evening, the town lights up! There many restaurants serving food to cater to all tastes, tapas bars (pubs that serve snacks) and several nightclubs. You can watch a flamenco show at one of the local bars or visit the cultural centre for a variety of musical and artistic performances.
With 320 days of sunshine a year, the Costa del Sol is famous for its long hot summers, balmy evenings and mild winters.
Nerja is ideally located for the following trips:
* The Alhambra Palace in Granada is a must, and don't miss the gardens or the Arab quarter!
* A tour of the white villages, including nearby Frigiliana, voted the prettiest village in Spain
* A visit to the famous caves where classical concerts and ballet performances are held in the summer months.
Malaga is a fascinating city, easily accessible by bus or car. It's a lively place with plenty of bars and restaurants, and a traffic-free shopping area. Close to the house where Picasso was born you will find a Roman ampitheatre. Take a walk up the hill from there to the Alcazaba, a Moorish fortress with breathtaking views of the bull ring, the old town and port.
Malaga boasts several museums, all of which are worth a visit:
Thyssen Museum (art)
Glass museum (stained glass, crystal)
Car museum (automoviles)
If it is hot and you would like to relax, you can take a tour bus, which will drop you off at the botanical gardens.
If you are here for a longer stay, you might like to travel further afield to Seville, Cordoba, Ronda, Jerez and Cadiz.
Fiestas and Ferias
(Festivals and Fairs)
Andalucians are friendly and easy-going, and believe in enjoying life. This is never more evident than during fiestas and ferias, when the women put on their brightly-coloured frilly dresses and the men show off on horseback. The festivities usually go on for about a week every Spring in the larger towns of Granada and Seville, and in smaller towns at various times during the year. San Isidro (15th May) is the local fiesta in Nerja. A procession of horses and oxen pulling decorated wagons leave from the church in Nerja and arrive in Maro, accompanied by much singing and dancing, eating and drinking.
Andalucia is a region of great natural beauty, and there are several large nature reserves nearby. If you need time out from all the fiestas, you might like to get back to nature on a jeep trek through the high sierras, or with a gentle game of golf.
