What's Nerja Like?
Nerja is primarily known for its primitive cave paintings, which were discovered back in 1959. Today, visitors can enter the caves to catch a glimpse of some of the region's first homes. The surrounding countryside is full of archaeological sites that date back to Roman times. Other points of interest include the Balcon de Europa, a viewpoint that stands high above the ocean, with a commanding view of the sun's sparkle dancing on the horizon. Another beautiful area is the Capistrano Playa, which is marked by white-walled buildings that cascade down the hillside toward a lilly pad filled lagoon. Grand churches like the Church of El Salvador are stunning examples of Baroque architecture. Many of the area's finest sites can be accessed after a short walk from one of Nerja's hotels.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Nerja
Nothing will facilitate an amazing stay like an open attitude. Here at Hotels.com, we've found that the best way to really want to delve into local culture and get friendly with some of the city's permanent residents is by making the small effort to learn a few words in Spanish. If you greet people in their native tongue, they will be much more likely to lend a friendly ear to your words or queries. In addition, it's important to demonstrate an actual interest in the local culture. This doesn't always require a firm grasp of the language, sometimes a smile will do. Always maintain a courteous composure and residents will respond in kind.
