Balcon de Europa
The centrepiece in Nerja is the Balcon de Europa which perches on the cliff
edge between two tiny coves. The “balcony” consists of tiled
pavements with seating conveniently placed beneath tall palms, for shade.
It is a pleasant place to rest and admire the views. The balcony was
constructed in 1487 on the site of a 9th century castle. In the nearby
square is the church of El Salvador, dating from the 17th century.
There are ample cafes and bars here to while away the hours.
