With a volume of more than 100,000 m3 and a surface covering 9,371 m2, the Tourist galleries represent approximately one-third of the cave. The cave has been used as a habitat, a burial site and for cultural expression. There are remnants testifying to the passage of hunters, gatherers and fishermen from more than 30,000 years ago. The General Visit starts with the screening of a audiovisual presentation in which you will be able to see spectacular details of the cave (10 minutes). Then an audio-guided visit through the different chambers of the Cave, in a pleasant walk of about 45 minutes where you will discover the many secrets the grotto keeps (audio-guided in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Russian). When the cave closes its doors, a small group of privileged people can enter the mystery of the underworld to enjoy the magnificence and beauty of the cave, and discover its secrets. You can choose between three modalities of Exclusive Tours

An excellent trip into the very impressive caves, and excellent facilities Toilets bar café. The Caves are very easy to get to just buy a ticket from the Museum for the little train that goes from the bus stop by the underground car park just a few yards away from the Museum.

First, I know the caves are awesome because I was there 4 years ago. I wanted to take my teenage son to visit the caves. After 3 hours of bus (tour bus that took us to the cave), we were told that the site was sold out for the day! We lost 7 hours in a day because of this... More

A must do (particularly on a bad weather day) best cave system I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a few. Very family friendly, good footpath and stair system and not claustrophobic at all.

Ok, so previous reviews have stated an entrance fee of €10 and €15 if you take the train. We walked and were told the entrance fee was €15?. Also, there was confusion over where we get the tickets. The chap in the booth marked "Tickets" was eating his breakfast/lunch(?) and was waving away people who approached him. We got there... More

The Caves of Nerja are located approx. 5Km from Nerja town center. If you do not have your own transport you can get there by public bus from the bus station (ticket office) in Plaza Cantarero or by street train which travels every hour from the Museum of Nerja located in the top left hand corner of Plaza de Espana....
