This Cave is situated in the Andalusia region of la Axarquia, between the Acantilados de Maro Natural Park and the Tejada and Almijara Sierras National Reserve, about 5 km from Nerja and 1 km from its old municipal district of Maro.
The Cave of Nerja, an Historic-Artistic Monument,
has a total length of 4,283 m of which only a third can be visited by
