Exploring Spain


Spain is a country of absorbing diversity, visible in its people, landscape, and astounding history. Each region of Spain could easily be considered an independent country, as the northern green landscapes contrast significantly with the southern mountainous and arid landscapes.

Cueva de Nerja is a 4km long underworld heaven! This is the longest and largest stalactite in the world, with a height of 33 metres and a 42 feet-long base in the Cataclysm Chamber.

The Nerja Caves were discovered in 1959 by a group of five local residents who were bat hunting in la Mina cave. After a panel of experts determined the value of the discovery, this place had to be shown to the whole world!

The caves, however, have the upper and lower galleries that were discovered by the public in 1960 and 1969 but remained closed to the public. Stone Age hunters’ paintings were also found in the caves, helping the Spanish Government to declare them as a Heritage of Cultural Interest, in 1985.
