Things to see in Andalucia

1. The Alhambra

is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada. It was originally constructed as a small fortress in AD 889 on the remains of Roman fortifications, and then largely ignored until its ruins were renovated and rebuilt in the mid-13th century. Today Alhambra is a major tourist attraction where you among other things can visit the Alcazaba (fortress), the Palace of Carlos V (with museums), and the Nazrid Palaces. You can also walk along the north wall towards the Generalife (gardens).

2. The Caves of Nerja (Cueva de Nerja)

are a series of caverns close to the town of Nerja, stretching for almost 5 kilometers. The caves were re-discovered in modern times on 12 January 1959 by five friends, who entered through a narrow sinkhole known as “La Mina”. The cave is divided into two main parts known as ”Nerja I” and ”Nerja II”. ”Nerja I” includes the Show Galleries which are open to the public. ”Nerja II”, which is not open to the public, comprises the Upper Gallery discovered in 1960 and the New Gallery discovered in 1969. In February 2012 it was announced that possibly 42,000 years Neanderthal cave paintings have been discovered in the Caves of Nerja.
