We saw the most amazing sight today, it is hard to find words to describe it. But of course I will try. The Caves of Nerja are just a short bus ride east of town. We almost passed on going to see them but at breakfast another guest exhorted us to go. So off we went. What a thing to see.

The caves are an impressive array of stalactites and stalagmites. The caverns are huge and ramble deep into the mountain, up and down 400 stairs. At the end is the Hall of the Cataclysm where you circle the world's largest stalactite, verified by the Guiness Book of World Records. The public area represents only a third of the entire cave.

The history of the caves and some additional photos are on line at We took lots of photos but they just don't do justice to what we saw. At every turn I was amazaed and the best word I could use to describe what I was seeing was "WOW"
