Seville – More than just Oranges and Barbers
Nerja is located east of the city of Malaga on the Spanish Costa del Sol. This makes Nerja a formidable place to use as a base to discover all the delights that Andalucia has to offer.
Malaga alone has enough attractions to keep you occupied for a few weeks. But, step outside a little further and you have some of the most beautiful and interesting towns, villages and cities in Spain.
The connections to Nerja are fantastic, you will have not trouble getting around.
Just on the coast itself, you have Marbella, Fuengirola, Benalmadena, Malaga, Torremolinos, Mijas. Further on Estepona, Gibraltar, Cadiz and more.
For the more adventurous of you, there is Seville. If you have never been to this beautiful capital of Andalucia, please, take the time and effort to visit. It is a beautiful place.
Seville is the capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia region. It’s famous for flamenco dancing, particularly in its Triana neighborhood. Major landmarks include the ornate Alcázar castle complex, built during the Moorish Almohad dynasty, and the 18th-century Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza bullring. The Gothic Seville Cathedral is the site of Christopher Columbus’s tomb and a minaret turned bell tower, the Giralda.
It’s possible to drive to Seville from Nerja. It would take you just under 3 hours to do so. However; there are day trips from Nerja to Seville at under 30€. This is by far the easiest and most relaxing way. You could also go via train from Malaga.
What to see
The sights and sounds of Seville are endless. There are some places that are a ‘must see’. The Giralda Tower, Torre del Oro (Gold Tower), Parque de Maria and many more. My own personal favourite is the Plaza de España. It is amazing.
Nerja has more than enough for two weeks of any vacation but there are some places that can’t wait to be seen.
Remember; BOOK YOUR ACCOMMODATION EARLY! Nerja is very popular in the whole year round. Check out the main Nerja Paradise Rentals main pages for the best in Nerja villas, apartments, and townhouses.
